Alex Rodriguez really just doesn't get it.

It seems like it's never his fault and will never accept blame for the messes he has created in his professional career.

The latest is the report from the New York Daily News that A-Rod thinks both the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball are trying to conspire to push him out of baseball.

Yes, that's right. The same New York Yankees who paid A-Rod a 10-year, $275 million deal back in 2007, are apparently trying to "blackball" A-Rod out of baseball.

This all started when A-Rod's name was in connection with an anti-aging clinic that a Miami doctor was supplying him with PED's while as a member of the Yankees.

After denying the allegations, ESPN then reported that the doctor involved, Anthony Bosch, personally went to A-Rod's home and injected himself with the illegal drugs.

The Yankees have been trying to look for ways to void the remainder of A-Rod's deal, which has five years and $114 million left on it.

But with the latest cry of conspiracy theory from A-Rod, this has sunk to a whole new level of ridiculousness.

It shows that A-Rod refuses to accept any blame for his actions and refuses to accept any responsibility for the wrong he has caused to himself and his team.

And if A-Rod really thinks the Yankees are trying to get him out of baseball, it's just another reason why the team needs to get rid of him.

I don't care if the Yankees have to void the contract or simply release him and eat the remainder of the deal, the Yankees need, in the worst way possible, to find a way to get rid of A-Rod.

It seems like it's been one headache after another with the slugger, and it's gotten worse with each passing year.

I could understand the Yankees putting up with A-Rod if he were still playing at an MVP level, but he hasn't in almost three years.

What the Yankees have dealt with is an aging, over-the-hill former superstar who is dealing with the after effects of steroids and PED's.

And that player is not worth $28 million, which is what A-Rod is set to make in 2013 as a member of the Yankees.

Because of how much money and the terms involved in the contract, voiding the deal is going to be very difficult, and some have wondered if the Yankees can even do it.

If they can, it has to be done, because it's a financial burden on the Yankees payroll.

As far as A-Rod the baseball player goes, he has become a liability and a walking embarrassment every time his name pops up in the media.

And that's why it's time for the Yankees to sever the ties for good with A-Rod.
