What now? Four Thoughts on K-Rod.

K-Rod needs to go.  But knowing the Wilpon's track record, and the way the MLB Player's Union works. This guy isn't going anywhere.

First thought that comes to everyone's mind first is: "Void the contract!" Huge round-off chorus of that going around.
My second thought: "Can that happen?" Of course it can't happen! Given that the Player's Unions in all sports today will defend their players to death, and the soft nature of the Wilpon Family, it ain't happening!
My third thought: "Trade him?" No, this guy is more un-tradable than Carlos Zambrano! (But then again, he more tradable than Ollie at least... *shiver*) He has nasty stuff but he less control of his pitch than Jerry Manuel has control of "ummmm".
Fourth thought: "Drop him?" never. The Wilpons would never do such a thing. I don't think any other owner would cut him either, he's owed way too much to cut.

I wonder what would have happened had the Mets not signed K-Rod in the first place, who/what would that money have been used on? Derek Lowe? CC? More money to keep JJ the Putz and his broken elbow in New York? You tell me.
