A-Rod Doesn't Sound Optimistic About Avoiding Strike

Texas Rangers slugger Alex Rodriguez isn't sounding optimistic about the chance of playing baseball as a threatened strike looms. Rodriguez, before Thursday night's game with Baltimore, said, "It doesn't look real good right now. I think our guys are ready to go."

The Texas shortstop played in his 356th straight game at the same time negotiators worked to try to avoid baseball's ninth work stoppage. Texas is scheduled to play at home on Friday against Tampa Bay, but many players packed personal belongings from their lockers into boxes before the Baltimore game.

The player known as A-Rod has a 10 year, $252 million deal with Texas. He's the current major league leader in home runs, RBI's, and salary, but the Rangers are in last place in the AL West for the third year in a row.
