The only out teams haven't tried is paying the contract then filing suit for fraud. The MLBPA wouldn't stand for that though.
If they dont want to honor the contract then they should not pay and fight to keep their money. Once they pay, then going after it would be tough. If they hold out they could hope for an agreed settlement.
My guess is they dont have an out and A-Fraud will get his $$$$ even if he never wears the pinstripes again. They are on the hook for the money so they should just make whatever decision is in the best interest of the club. That money is already spent.
