Probably The Only Place Left For A-Rod

As we look over Alex Rodriguez's possible free agent destinations, frankly, only one place makes sense: The Toledo Mud Hens. And they're making their push.

And they're totally not kidding around. Nope! Not at all!

The Mud Hens prepared a letter that they plan to mail to Rodriguez's agent, Scott Boras. Included is a contract offer with incentives if he hits 75 home runs per season and leads Toledo to 10 straight Governors' Cup titles. There is a catch, of course.

The letter includes a reminder that Mike Hessman - the International League's reigning Most Valuable Player - is the Mud Hens' everyday third baseman. "We think that it would be a healthy competition at spring training between the two of them," it reads. "Would your client be willing to play a different position?"


Clever, and we love that plaque they made. Of course, A-Rod isn't the only free agent out there. Don't forget Reggie Sanders, Geoff Jenkins, Mike Lamb and, of course, Sammy Sosa. Let the games begin!
