Yeah, but a lot of the issue with that was the money.  The Rangers weren't going anywhere and were trying to go cheap because they had a few millstone contracts around that time (Chan Ho Park, anyone?).   A lot more teams would probably be in the market for a $21 million superstar today than wanted one for $25 million or whatever it was back in the Dark Ages.

ARod's contract today would be worth 360+ million. He was traded after his third year, so there would be approximately 260 million left on it. How many teams can eat that today?
