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.”
Before agreeing to cooperate with MLB’s investigation, Biogenesis operator Anthony Bosch asked for six-figure “financial help” from Alex Rodriguez, according to the New York Daily News.
Joe Girardi says the Yankees will “cross that bridge” later if baseball suspends Alex Rodriguez for his reported link to Biogenesis.
A league executive told CBS News that Anthony Bosch could implicate up to 25 players, including some stars not currently connected to the firestorm.
