A-Rod’s explosive in-studio interview on WFAN may have just been the introduction. The Yankees star is nearing a lucrative agreement for a book about his feud with MLB, according to the New York Post.
The ruling makes it less likely MLB can use evidence from Sitrick to argue for enforcement of a 211-game suspension it imposed on A-Rod in August for alleged violations of baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract. Rodriguez is challenging the suspension.
“We loved Robby. He’s a great player,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday. “We made an offer we were comfortable with making. It fell far short of obviously where Seattle was. So, in terms of respect, they showed a lot more respect financially than we did.”
“What I’m thinking about asking A-Rod is, ‘Are you guilty?’ I want to make it as awkward as possible for him … He’s ripping off the Yankees for $28 million a year. I think it’s wrong.”
When Craig learned about an opportunity to bid on a lunch with Alex Rodriguez, his head started spinning just thinking about all of the possibilities.
The reason why the Yankees and $189 million keep being brought up is if they can come in under that amount, their luxury tax rate would be slashed from 50 percent to 17.5 percent. A-Rod may be the key.
The Yankees have agreed to sign infielder/outfielder Kelly Johnston to a one-year deal in the $3 million range pending a physical, WFAN/CBS Sports baseball insider John Heyman reports.
While Alex Rodriguez awaits an arbitrator’s ruling in his 211-game steroid suspension, his ex-wife has spoken out about the man behind the scandal.
In a 33-page amended complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, the lawyers said: “Mr. Selig lacked the courage of his convictions to explain under oath the reasons for the suspension.”
Dave Winfield, Frank Thomas, David Cone, Bobby Bonilla and incoming union head Tony Clark attended the funeral as well.
Alex Rodriguez says he scoured the planet looking for “cutting edge” supplements, which miraculously led him to Miami. Alex must be the most unlucky athlete on earth, as his innocent quest for herbal truth landed him with Tony Galea and Tony Bosch.
Spanning 12 days, from the end of September through Thursday, the arbitration had many ups and downs, mysteries and follies, rights and wrongs.
“If he tells me something, I’m going to believe him. Definitely,” Rivera said. “But again, that’s me. He’s my friend, and if he tells me something I’m going to believe him.”
Alex Rodriguez’s lawyer acknowledged the possibility of his client unknowingly taking a banned substance, but said it wasn’t the backbone of his defense. “Here’s the thing: it would defy science.”
The deeper the mess surrounding Alex Rodriguez goes, the worse it becomes. Put in other terms: same garbage, different day.
