A-Rod Mud Hens PlaqueHank Steinbrenner said it, now the Toledo Mud Hens have made it so. Spurred on by a comment from the younger Steinbrenner in which he said, "Does he want to go into the Hall of Fame as a Yankee, or a Toledo Mud Hen?" after Alex Rodriguez opted out of his 10-year, $252 million contract with the Yankees, the Mud Hens have offered A-Rod a contract. As reported by The AP:

The Mud Hens playfully offered the prize free agent a deal Thursday -- a contract proposal that includes a bonus for hitting 75 home runs next year and leading them to 10 straight International League titles.

The Mud Hens also created the Hall of Fame plaque shown here, yet added that Rodriguez would have to compete with Toledo third basemen Mike Hessman, the league's most valuable player last season.
