A-Rod: 'I will be back' with Yankees

Alex Rodriguez says he will be back with the New York Yankees next season, according to Peter Botte on Twitter:

Speculation has been rampant, with the numerous benchings Rodriguez endured throughout the Yankees' failed playoff run, that the team is desperate to unload the erstwhile superstar. He performed miserably in the 2012 post-season, collecting only three singles in 25 plate appearances while failing to drive in a single run. He did not start in either games 3 or 4 in the ALCS, as the Yankees were swept by the Detroit Tigers.

As Botte noted, plans change. Rodriguez is not a popular man in New York, and though he may want to stay with the Yankees, he could decide it is best to part ways. He is certainly not the all-world mega-star he once was, but his .272/.353/.430 hitting line in 2012 would be a welcomed addition to a number of teams' infields.
