A-rod's huge contract now coming back to haunt him. The players union wouldn't let him reduce the value of his contract. Boston and Texas need some of his money back to make the Ramierez for A-rod trade. Hope they are both miserable and make their teamates miserable at the same time.

A-rod for Ramierez and Nomar for Ordonez would have made Boston the favorite to make the series from the AL. Yanks dodge another bullet!

For some reason if they cant put this deal together there is gonna be alot of sour pusses in both dugouts next season. How do you think Garciaparra is gonna feel sitting there knowing that Boston dosent want you there.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Baseball commissioner Bud Selig ended talks about restructuring Alex Rodriguez's $252 million contract Thursday, another setback to the proposed trade between the Texas Rangers and Boston Red Sox.

The sides had tried to rework the shortstop's deal so it would be acceptable to the Red Sox and the players' union, which rejected the changes Wednesday. Selig stopped the talks about 20 minutes after a 5 p.m. deadline.

``I have terminated my permission for Boston and Alex Rodriguez to continue pursuing this transaction at this time,'' Selig said.
