A-Rod to Return?

Mike Lupica apparently has sources close to A Rod who claim he is interested in trying to make things right with the Yankees;
"There is only one way to make this right, if Rodriguez wants to stay: He goes to Tampa. Again: There are people close to the player, closer than Boras right now, who believe he is ready to do it and do it soon. That he knows he’s not going to break all the world’s records the way he did when he went to Texas. That what the Yankees were fully prepared to offer, a deal that could have gone to a total value of $230 million over the next eight years, was the best one he was going to get."

As the list of potential suitors for ARod got smaller and smaller it was only a matter of time before team Boras tried to bring the Yankees back into it. Boras needs two of following teams in it to achive what he wants; Red Sox, Yankees, Mets, Dodgers, and Angels. Having two big market teams will create the bidding war he desires. Right now the only team with expressed interest is the Angels.

This bit of news comes on the same day as Hank Steinbrenner waffled a bit on his hard line stance;
"Whether something did happen or not," Steinbrenner said of a Rodriguez return, "I am not going to comment on that situation."

Quite a bit different then his original comments.
