HE SAID WHAT?

“Does he want to go into the Hall of Fame as a Yankee or a Toledo Mud Hen?” — Hank Steinbrenner after Alex Rodriguez opted out of his contract

NEWSMAKERS

Alex Rodriguez

Opting out of his contract during Game 4 of the World Series is as close as he will come to baseball’s highest stage.

Joe Girardi

Yankees hire manager known for run-ins with management. A Steinbrenner still owns this team, right?

Tony Romo

Signs $60 million extension and reportedly receives lap dance from Britney Spears. Five years ago that would have been a great week.

Gilbert Arenas

Wizards open on the road tonight, and everyone will be watching Agent Zero and his surgically repaired knee.

Kobe Bryant

Lakers kicked off season last night with their star still pining for a trade … and better teammates.

TWT FIVE ” Wizards’ reasons for optimism

1. Who else will win the Southeast? Wade is hurt in Miami, Orlando wasted their cap space on Rashard Lewis and Charlotte is still Charlotte. Hello, No. 4 seed.

2. Combined age of Celtics’ “Big Three” (Allen, Garnett, Pierce): 93. Combined age of Wizards’ “Big Three” (Arenas, Butler, Jamison): 83.

3. Nick Young and Oleksiy Pecherov are better off the bench than Jarvis Hayes and Michael Ruffin.

4. Eddie Jordan is preaching defense. No, seriously. They really mean it this time.

5. Etan Thomas will write you a letter if you say bad things about them.
