Baseball could reportedly use a clause in the CBA to tack penalties on top of a potential suspension if investigators conclude that Alex Rodriguez interfered in the league’s Biogenesis probe.
Alex Rodriguez “has prepared a hefty defense that he believes will exonerate him,” according to the New York Daily News.
A source told the New York Times that the polarizing three-time American League MVP told both Cashman and team president Randy Levine that he’s not sure if he’ll be able to return to the field in 2013 — or ever, for that matter.
It seems like every time the Yankees get a bit of bad news, Alex Rodriguez is somehow lurking in the background.
On Tuesday, Alex Rodriguez tweeted that he was medically cleared to play in games. We all know how the Yankees GM responded. Now there’s reportedly a twist…
You could see Cashman’s anger rising like a thermometer over the last few years. He was ardently opposed to giving A-Rod a new contract of any kind in ’07, much less the mammoth extension bestowed upon perhaps the most polarizing player on Earth.
Here comes A-Rod. The embattled slugger could start seeing action in rehab games as early as next week, according to multiple reports.
Alex Rodriguez’s attorney, David Cornwell, says MLB’s intel on the shuttered Florida anti-aging clinic is “irreparably tainted.”
The good news is that the Yankees are just 3 1/2 games out of first place. The troubling news is that they’re just four games out of last.
According to Porter Fischer, Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez called Anthony Bosch to Detroit during last year’s ALCS to help him fix his swing.
As the sport presents the bad guys to you via suspensions over the next few months, don’t forget the folks who oversaw the actions in the past and did nothing until it was too late.
Bottom line is this—A-Rod will no longer be considered among the greatest players ever, and he will not be in the Hall of Fame, as a Yankee or anything else.
Everyone seems sure that Anthony Bosch will just show up and testify. How can this be? Why would Bosch incriminate himself?
Meanwhile, Commissioner Bud Selig said MLB’s “very comprehensive” probe proves that baseball has the toughest drug policy in professional sports.
Alex Rodriguez broke his silence Thursday in a statement: “Myself and others are being mentioned in a media report before the process is even concluded.”
