New York Post's front page tells A-Rod to 'Just Go'

It's not a headline as iconic as "Headless Body in Topless Bar," but the New York Post expressed what they consider Yankee fans' feelings loud and clear with Monday's front page featuring a photo of Alex Rodriguez and 160-point, block letters spelling out "JUST GO."

According to the New York tabloid:

Yankees fans have had enough of Alex Rodriguez — and would like to see the PED-linked prima donna take a long walk out of The Bronx for good.



While the defiant Yankees third baseman awaits his fate from MLB Commissioner Bud Selig Monday morning, fans, reportedly fed up with the drawn-out Biogenesis scandal, believe that A-Rod cheated and should accept the ban and leave.

Rather than mourn the loss of the high-paid superstar, many Yankees fans said they believe the team would be better off if A-Rod would take his $29 million salary and just go away.

The suspension ruling that is expected today comes just as A-Rod is ready to get off a long stint on the disabled list, where he was recovering from a hip injury. He has the right to stay on the team as he appeals any suspension, so he may be in the lineup tonight even if Selig bans him through 2014.



The prospect of an embattled and humiliated Rodriguez taking the field had people flocking to Twitter yesterday to mock him.

“Hey @AROD, you should juice up as much as you can while you appeal your suspension. You won’t win, [might] as well go out with a bang,” said a user who took the name “Not Aroid.”

Another user named Quanell said: “Hey @arod ! Great example you are setting for kids. Why don’t you quit and admit cheaters don’t win? Take your dirty money and go away.”

Fans even took shots at A-Rod's former Hollywood romances.

“Biggest lesson learned from this whole @AROD scandal is that you should NEVER let Cameron Diaz feed you popcorn,” he said.

Expect to see more than a few of these front pages at Yankee Stadium when the team returns on Friday — if A-Rod is still around. Maybe with the headline: "Clueless Slugger in Endless Ban."

  1. The Yankee front office that wants him to go away so they can free up money is the same one that offered him the ridiculous extension in the first place.

  2. He cheated, he knew it was wrong but he did it anyway. He's so arrogant that he thought he could get away with it. Arod should leave quietly and not darken the diamonds of MLB ever again.

  3. People love a good scandal. Half of everyone that is telling him to leave haven't put any effort into finding out if he is guilty of anything or not. They're just on the bandwagon. Go AROD:)

  4. He has never tested positive!! The others that got 50 games or more has. If I call the police and say you was speeding should you get a ticket? If you get caught the you get a ticket he hasn't got caught!

  5. He made his own problems. He should start by negotiating quitely with the Yankees-settle for something less than the full amount of his his contract. He'll avoid a hastle with management-and avoid years of legal woes compounded by paying lawyers through the nose! Benefit-payout over ten years should lower his tax liability thus eliminating the need to hold a benefit for him. Then play in Japan for three or four years, pick up a seven figure amount-walk away-quietly, if possible! Diogenes
