THE WAITING IS THE HARDEST PART

Posted By Alex Belth On December 19, 2003 @ 8:16 am In Bronx Banter | Comments Disabled

The 5:00 deadline came and went yesterday and Alex Rodriguez [1] was still a member of the Texas Rangers. While the Red Sox proclaimed that the “deal is dead [2],” Texas GM John Hart, and Rodriguez’s agent Scott Boras said that just isn’t the case. I still believe the trade will get done, oh, just in time for Christmas (hey, timing is everything, right?). For the latest on the story that just won’t quit, check out the professionals [3]: Bob Ryan [4], Joe Sheehan [5], Harvey Araton [6], John Donovan [7], Buster Olney [8], David Pinto [9], Jack Curry [10], and Tom Boswell [11].
