BASEBALL: An A-Rod Primer

Here's some internal links to give you my take on the Yankees' apparent acquisition of Alex Rodriguez:

*Links here, here and here on my Win Shares analysis of the Yankees, Rangers, Rodriguez and Soriano.

*A look here (and an update here) on the historic nature of Rodriguez' productivity.

*My take here and here on the Players Union sabotaging the Red Sox' attempt to get A-Rod.

*My thoughts on A-Rod's MVP award.

*Here's where I ran the numbers last fall on the Yankees' financial dominance, before they brought in Rodriguez, Sheffield, Kevin Brown and Javier Vazquez. What's scary is that they've moved on to snagging players the other rich teams can't afford.

Sometimes, it's as if Steinbrenner uses the majors as his own farm teams.
