Alex Rodriguez was back at Major League Baseball’s office Monday for the resumption of the grievance hearing to overturn his 211-game suspension.
The 30-year-old was an All-Star in 2012, but he had a down year in 2013. The right-handed hitter batted .262 with nine home runs and 60 RBIs in 138 games.
“We’ve got a couple more meetings,” Wilpon said. “And there might be hopefully something cooking later. Right now, it’s quiet.”
Girardi said on Thursday that if a decision isn’t made soon, the team will have to make backup third-base plans in case Rodriguez isn’t available.
Alex Rodriguez is set to appear in court Thursday for a hearing in his lawsuit against Major League Baseball and its commissioner, accusing them of engaging in a witch hunt.
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.
“It is sad that Commissioner Selig once again is turning a blind eye, knowing that crimes are being committed under his regime,” Rodriguez said. “I have 100 percent faith in my legal team.”

Neither the Mets nor the Yankees made the playoffs this season, but there’s one thing that they can celebrate together: They’re both worth a lot of money.
“At this point, I don’t know who would argue to keep it, or what their argument would be,” one team official said. “There is no reasoned argument to keep it (in the game).”
Alex Rodriguez’s lawsuit claiming Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig went on a “witch hunt” to force him from the sport has been moved from state to federal court.
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.
