Has A-Rod taken his final trot back to the dugout in a Yankee uniform?

The Yankees need to move Alex Rodriguez. It's not that he can't play any more, it's that he can't play for the Yankees any more.

A-Rod, one of the best hitters in the history of the game, is clearly inside of his own head striking himself out and he is making himself look like a fool at the plate, especially in high-pressure situations. 

He is a huge distraction for a Yankee team that is built to win right now and makes it difficult on Joe Girardi to pay attention to more pressing issues on the team because he is constantly worrying about how his fragile third baseman will react to negative attention. 

It is time for the Yankees-A-Rod marriage to end. It has been nine long seasons, eight of which ended in disappointment and only one with a glorious November parade down the Canyon of Heroes.

A-Rod playing next to Derek Jeter is no longer working for either party, which is why GM Brian Cashman needs to get creative with how to move him this offseason.
