Alex Rodriguez Stands to Lose Half His Future Pay

Although Yankees star third baseman Alex Rodriguez has already collected six years of earnings from his 10-year. $252 million contract, half of the remainder of the $27 million he is owed this year plus earnings for the next three years would be subject to a divorce settlement, according to a common understanding of conventional divorce laws.

Only a prenuptial agreement would isolate future earnings from being subjected to judicial ruling if his wife Cynthia presses for a court fight on grounds including her husband's suspected infidelities with entertainer Madonna, who formerly had been linked to numerous men including Rodriguez friend Jose Canseco.
