Given that A-Rod grew up in Miami, the move made sense yet would shock to the entire baseball landscape.
Those talks were shut down by A-Rod’s publicist:
“I want to put all this talk about Alex playing for any team this season. It’s not happening.” — A-Rod spokesman Ron Berkowitz

It appears as if nothing ever comes easy with the former AL MVP.
