Has Alex Rodriguez accepted his fate? A-Rod says his 162-game suspension could be considered “a favor” despite filing a lawsuit against MLB and its players’ union in an attempt to overturn it.
Hal Steinbrenner says A-Rod is “a great player,” but the Yankees’ managing general partner wouldn’t discuss the third baseman’s possible return to the team following a season-long suspension.
Carton says that A-Rod is finally ready to give up the fight by taking the year off. Boomer says that Alex is starting to make sense.
Since most men don’t have the time, money, and desperation for such municipal waste, we have the A-Rod apologist, who, like their fallen icon, has resorted to vast swaths of illogical reasoning, deflection, and denial in his defense.
Deadspin ordered up an unlimited bowl of bad puns Wednesday when it posted on its website a picture of Alex Rodriguez looking a little saggy in the chin and round in the gut.
Ex-Yankee Chuck Knoblauch says baseball’s Steroids Era really wasn’t as bad as the narrative might suggest. “If somebody was doing something, it was definitely behind the scenes,” he told WFAN radio.
A-Rod lectured about the evils of steroids when he went on a contrition tour after his first go around with drugs. Don Hooton of the Taylor Hooton Foundation said he hopes A-Rod’s punishment sends a message.
Roberts’ deal was agreed to on Dec. 17 and finalized Tuesday, three days after a spot on the 40-man roster opened when Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the season for violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract.
According to a number of published reports prior to Monday’s filing, A-Rod’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said that A-Rod’s legal team would be filing for an injunction. Apparently, no motion papers for an injunction were filed Monday. Why not?
Mark Teixeira thinks the Alex Rodriguez situation is a lose-lose for everyone involved. “Alex doesn’t win, MLB doesn’t win, the Yankees don’t win,” the first baseman said Monday.
Former Mets reliever Jon Rauch blasted Alex Rodriguez on Twitter for filing a lawsuit against the Major League Baseball Players Association, saying the 14-time All-Star has run out of people to blame.
Boomer and Craig began Tuesday’s radio program the only way they really could — by discussing the latest scuttlebutt from the ongoing saga that is the life of Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez in his suit claimed the Major League Baseball Players Association “completely abdicated its responsibility to Mr. Rodriguez to protect his rights.”
Joe Tacopina suggested Monday that A-Rod — who is suing the league for what he calls a witch hunt — could file “additional actions” and defamation lawsuits based on assertions made by Anthony Bosch and MLB’s COO.
By now you probably know about the virtually impossible legal hurdles that A-Rod has to jump over to get a stay or an injunction or, eventually, an elimination or reduction of that season-long suspension.
