04:56 AM ET 11.19 | The Yankees, agent Scott Boras and MLB officials are moving toward finding a way for Alex Rodriguez to share in the financial windfall the Yankees will experience as Rodriguez approaches Barry Bonds' all-time home-run record in pinstripes. Because milestone bonuses are not allowed in player contracts, a revenue-sharing program has to be agreed on before the 10-year, $275 million deal becomes official. The contract easily could climb past the $300 million mark. Rodriguez, 32, has 518 homers; Bonds leads with 762. Talking to MLB.com during the weekend, Rodriguez said the negotiations are "in the bottom of the fifth inning."
