There is a rumor that if the Yankess release A-Rod that the Red Sox will make a move to sign him. Will you want A-Rod to become a Red Sox?

our team isn't about star players, none of our players are in any league leading catagories, (avg, rbis, hr, slg, etc), if we sign arod, not only will we add on to our already huge payroll, he just doesn't fit the type of players we have in boston.

I couldn't agree with you more. For decades the Sox have searched for quality regardless of previous fame. A great number of the big names of yesteryear....Ted Williams, Yaz, Jim Rice, Bobby Doerr, Carlton Fisk, just to name a few became famous "after" their start with the Sox. Some, perhaps went on to bigger or better things...but only after making their mark in Fenway. I haven't been on the net lately and since I live in Portugal it is difficult to keep up with what's going on. I do know that the deadline is almost here and I have seen nothing about a transfer so I am assuming it didn't go through and we wont get a chance to get our "revenge" one way or another.

Rodriguez is immense. I would most certainly love him to join the Red Sox Nation.. maybe he is the Anti-Babe? He will come to Boston and that will curse Yankee stadium to 86 years of near misses and struggles and of course... no World Series'!!! haha Now that would be worth it all!

That idea strikes me as interesting and somewhat vindictive....but as a Sox fan for more than 60 years it would help end once and for all the "hex" of the Babe's sale to the "NY Pankees". "Justice is mine sayeth the Sox Fan".

As a player A-Rod is one of the best. He is a great power hitter with the ability to go deep to all fields. He would hit 60 home runs playing in Fenway for 81 games. He has speed as well and could probably swipe somewhere around 15-20 bases. His defense at short was impeccable and is vastly improved at third form two years ago. Any one who says they dont want A-Rod is mistaken. On that note if A-Rod were to come and play for the Sox win MVPs and batting titles Break all sorts of records and wear the big red B into the hall I would never ever respect this man. I think he plays the game the way it should not be played and would never truly be a dirt dog. But if he does come here I would certainly cheer everytime he hit a homer.

I know what you mean. Ever if A-Rod help to win another World Series he wouldn't be a real Red Sox.And I know how you feel about A-Rod. I had the same feeling about Bertuzzi joining my Red Wings. He has a bas rep but he was coming to mt team to help make them better so I tried to root for him.He was a bid dud. I think A-Rod would do well in Boston but I started the discussion to see if Boston was okay with A-Rod.

Sport fans always embrace one of their own. Any Red Sox fan who tells you they do not want the most talented player in baseball on their team is a liar. Just as Yankee fans grew to love Clemens and Damon, Sox fas would also love A-Rod.

I am always a Yankee fan. I enjoy A Rod and he is to stay on the Yankees. I remember Roger Clemens who used to pitch for the Yanks. I see Johnny Damon on the Yankees. Remember: RED SOX SUCK!!! YANKEES RULE!!!

Yes of course. He is right, I think any red sox fan would want A-Rod to become a red sox player. I am a Red Sox fan myself but I think the chances of A-Rod coming to Boston is about 1% if not less.

You would have to be completely stupid to not want A-Rod on your team. The man just continues to put up numbers. He would also improve those hitting around him. If he switches to the Red Sox and continues to play the way he is, fans will soon forget his past team.

Even knowing what a great player he is I would hate to see him become a member of the Red Sox. There is something so arrogant about him.. I could never see myself becoming a fan. He could take a few lessons from Big Papi about being humble.

That is true, he is too arrogant to be a true Red Sox.

First of all, the Yankees would NEVER release A-Rod. The possibility is that A-Rod would opt out of his contract, in order to leave NY. And HELL YES, I want Boston to sign one of the greatest players in the history of the game.

A-Rod is a walking jinx. I don't see A-Rod honestly leaving the Yankees for some reason. I wouldn't want him on my team to tell you the truth. I can't see him honestly fitting in the Red Sox group. They got some good players but I don't think he'll be able to add more much to them. Besides, look how he's played as of late in the post-season. That's a good reason not to have him because he hasn't performed up to par when the lights have been on bright and everything is on the line.

I agree. There's no room at the inn. And he isn't humble enough to be a real Red Sox. I started this discussion back when there were those rumors of A Rod moving.

The Red Sox have absolutely no need for A-Rod. A-Rod's agent Scott Boras has made it clear he wants 12 years 360 million dollars for A-Rod starting next year. This is a ridiculous contract for anyone in professional sports, especially for someone who hasn't been a proven winner. In fact, A-Rod's playoff numbers have been declining steadily since he left the mariners. Although he did post a so-so batting average this postseason, the contribution was insignificant. In any case, the Red Sox should steer clear from him.

I agree.The Red Sox are still in the playoffs and A rod is home with the popcorn watching the playoffs.

I don't see A-Rod in beantown. There's no where for him to play. The sox have a powerful DH, a reliable third baseman, and A-Rod doesn't have the range anymore to play short. The sox are set and they shouldn't change a thing with their line-up until they start losing (which isn't going to happen anytime soon)
