A source close to the conversations told ESPN Saturday morning that talks are in the early stages but that it's a "longshot" the deal will ever be completed because of "many hurdles" that stand in the way

I seriously hope this trade does not happen. As a Mariners fan I hate ARod and I hope he has to stay in Texas for the remainder of his contract. I also hate the Yankees and this would really improve them.

It's official.
Yankees trade Alphonso Soriano and two others to the Texas Rangers for: ALEX RODRIGUEZ
A-Rod will switch to third base.

This is absolutely disgusting..

How many f'n 100 million dollar men do the Yankees need? They already have Jeter, Giambi and now A-Rod making over 100 million dollars, while Bernie Williams has an 89 million dollar deal..

Pretty freaking sad when the contracts of four players on one team are more than the combined contracts of 6 teams..

We all like to complain about the NFL, but at LEAST they have a functioning salary cap that curcumvienes **** like this from happening..

It's not official yet.... it's just very likely. ESPN.com and MLB.com said it's not official yet

I'm a Red Sox fan, so this news is even worse for me. But it's going to happen, the yanks always get who they want.... and they can... b/c there is no slaray cap. The yanks should just save themsevles the time and buy the sox, d-rays, orioles and blue jays.

It's not even close to being official. And what does this have to do with the Dolphins exactly?

It is close, but "some issues" remain.

They actually came on during the Arena football game on NBC and said that the deal was done.

LOL. Nothing. Big sports news though.
They cut to the scene on air on NBC to announce the trade.

Well it's not offical. Espn said it wasn't, espn.com said it wasn't offcial. Nesn said it wasn't official. And MLB.com said it wasn't offical. It was obviously was reported wrong.

The Deal is NOT done yet.

That is just two links. The deal is not official yet, some little newspaper said it was.... but it's not.

It is official!!! Oh wow...I hate the ****ing Yankees. They try to buy World Championships...and they manage to flunk year in and year out. Can their hitting make up for their lack of pitching though? This is why Baseball needs a cap, so **** like this does not happen BUT it will never happen.

It is NOT official. They have the FRAMEWORK in place. The deal the Red Sox had for him was more official than this until the MLBPA rejected the deal.

If this happens, it's the worse sports news(combined with Pats winning it) in a long time.

cant blame the Yankees. they got the $$$ to spend. they getting the best player in baseball. im a Giants fan, if the Giants could afford him, i wouldnt mind getting him.

No one would mind getting him. But it's not fair... b/c not everyone has the money. And just because they do have the money,l they really can go out and do/ get whatever and whoever the hell they want. It really takes the fun and competition out of baseball sometimes.

With no salary cap you basically get a handful of great teams, followed by a whole bunch of suck a$$ teams.
