It all sounds ominous, though the Yankees third baseman “has no intention of negotiating a settlement” for his alleged part in baseball’s latest PED scandal, according to USA Today.
Two all-time Yankees say they’ll back up Alex Rodriguez if he’s suspended in the wake of MLB’s investigation into Biogenesis and performance-enhancing drugs.
Not only did Braun let down scores of baseball fans Monday, he riled up players all around the majors. The guys who used to be in his corner. The guys who make up the union membership.
Alex Rodriguez joined WFAN radio host Mike Francesa on Wednesday to talk about his rehab and a little about baseball’s Biogenesis scandal.
Start the countdown: A-Rod’s return is just five days away. “I will be back on Monday and I’m very excited,” he told WFAN radio Wednesday.
The game belongs to the players, coaches, managers and owners. If they want it clean, they have the power to make it so, even if it becomes extremely uncomfortable for the guilty few. They need only to come together and get it done.
The commish knows whether Alex Rodriguez will be suspended in the sport’s latest performance-enhancing drugs scandal. He’s just not saying — yet.
Rodriguez, mum on his meeting with MLB, is expected to be with the Double-A team as the Thunder open a three-game series in Reading, Pa., Monday.
The head of the baseball players’ union is criticizing leaks to the media about whether players are cooperating with a drug investigation by the commissioner’s office.
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.
