If the Yankees third baseman cares at all about returning to the game with any ounce of personal integrity in 2015, a full confession is his only exit strategy.
As a longtime union leader, Glavine finds it “hard to believe” that Alex Rodriguez is claiming the MLBPA didn’t do its job when they represented him in the grievance that lowered his 211-game suspension to 162 games.
Last year we had Rex Ryan on the beach with a curious tattoo. This year we have Alex Rodriguez posing with a mariachi band in Cancun.
Has Alex Rodriguez accepted his fate? A-Rod says his 162-game suspension could be considered “a favor” despite filing a lawsuit against MLB and its players’ union in an attempt to overturn it.
Mark Teixeira thinks the Alex Rodriguez situation is a lose-lose for everyone involved. “Alex doesn’t win, MLB doesn’t win, the Yankees don’t win,” the first baseman said Monday.
Former Mets reliever Jon Rauch blasted Alex Rodriguez on Twitter for filing a lawsuit against the Major League Baseball Players Association, saying the 14-time All-Star has run out of people to blame.
Rodriguez in his suit claimed the Major League Baseball Players Association “completely abdicated its responsibility to Mr. Rodriguez to protect his rights.”
Joe Tacopina suggested Monday that A-Rod — who is suing the league for what he calls a witch hunt — could file “additional actions” and defamation lawsuits based on assertions made by Anthony Bosch and MLB’s COO.

Major League Baseball’s key witness in its case against Alex Rodriguez said he designed and administered an elaborate doping program for the 14-time All-Star starting in 2010.
Of all the holes the Yankees have filled and still need to address, third base is not one of them. Assuming his health cooperates, Rodriguez will be in pinstripes again. This year. Not next.
Alex Rodriguez is ready to round third and head for court if he doesn’t like an independent arbitrator’s decision on his 211-game suspension, according to the New York Daily News.
It seems we’ll have at least one more weekend to debate the Alex Rodriguez case. An arbitrator’s decision on A-Rod’s 211-game suspension “probably won’t be known until next week,” according to the New York Post.
We know that things got ugly between Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees. But how ugly did they get, exactly? Well, pretty darn ugly. And strange…
