Alex Rodriguez walked out of his grievance hearing Wednesday after arbitrator Fredric Horowitz refused to order baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to testify. He later showed up at the WFAN studios to talk to host Mike Francesa about it.
A Florida police department has reopened an investigation into the theft of documents related to baseball’s inquiry into whether Alex Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs.
The New York Times has reported that the three-time American League MVP failed a drug test for stimulants back in 2006. Lanny J. Davis, one of the representatives of A-Rod’s high-powered legal team, denied the accusation.
Alex Rodriguez and his band of lawyers returned to 245 Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan on Wednesday morning to resume his arbitration appealing his 211-game suspension by Major League Baseball.
The suit claims that Bud Selig and MLB have tried to smear Rodriguez’s reputation to “gloss over” Selig’s past inaction and tacit approval of the use of performance-enhancing substances in baseball.
Alex Rodriguez says he’s excited to get his suspension hearing started, and is ready to face it “head on.”
A month after suddenly abandoning his claims of innocence and accepting a 65-game suspension from Major League Baseball, the Milwaukee Brewers’ slugger admitted he took a cream and a lozenge containing banned substances.
“I didn’t like it,” designated hitter David Ortiz said. “I don’t think it was the right thing to do. But we don’t all think alike, and the guy who did it — Dempster — is a great guy.”
A South Florida judge has granted a delay in witness depositions in MLB’s lawsuit against a now-closed clinic accused of providing banned substances to players.
Red Sox starting pitcher Ryan Dempster has been suspended five games for throwing at Alex Rodriguez.
This ugly mess only appears to be getting uglier. According to ESPN, Alex Rodriguez’s representatives are planning on filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against Yankees team doctor Chris Ahmad.
A-Rod has sought the services of lawyer Joseph Tacopina in an attempt to fight back. Tacopina claims that the Yankees played Rodriguez last October without informing him that he was carrying a torn labrum.
“Look, as I told him when I talked to him in Tampa, we need him,” Steinbrenner said. “We do. That’s just obvious. We’ve still got our injuries, and my hope is that he comes back and continues to improve and stay healthy.”
In the first segment, Madden gave his take on the A-Rod suspension and made some claims about what was initially offered to the slugger and how the process played out. In the second part of the interview, however, things got heated.
“And to be honest with you, I picked the wrong vice,” Rose said. “I should have picked alcohol. I should have picked drugs or I should have picked beating up my wife or girlfriend because if you do those three, you get a second chance.”
