07:16 AM ET 06.28 | It wasn't all that long ago that some believed Alex Rodriguez would beat Derek Jeter back to the lineup -- though that seemed unlikely heading into the weekend. "I'm not sure when I can come back," A-Rod is said to have told general manager Brian Cashman and team president Randy Levine on [a three-way conference call]. "It could be in July. It could be in August. It could be I won't be able to play at all this year." ... On Wednesday, sources told ESPN New York that Rodriguez believed the Yankees were delaying his return in order to collect insurance on his $28 million salary. A team source confirmed it is a suspicion A-Rod has harbored for some time. In fact, he made a call to Yankees executives several months ago asking if the team was trying "to get rid of me."

Of course they are trying to get rid of you! You would be trying to get rid of you if you were in their position.

I for one can't wait to see Arod back in that Yankee lineup.

Striking out with the bases loaded and hitting into rally killing double plays.

Is it still paranoia if it is true?

Of course they want to be rid of you ARoid. Well - at least your contract.

I'm pretty sure they can do without his personality as well.
