A-Rod’s lawyers should return to the arbitration on Thursday or Friday and continue until the end, with or without Selig’s testimony.
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.
The Giants (4-6) are 1 1/2 games behind first-place Philadelphia in the NFC East. The Eagles have a bye in Week 12. The Giants hope to be a game out by week’s end. They’ll get their chance against visiting Dallas (5-5).
“I’m staring at my board right now,” Alderson said. “In the outfield category, I’ve got seven guys on my board who are free agents — varying degrees of quality. In the trade category just as an example, I’ve got four, five — nine. Those are guys we talked about internally. They range from A+ to C+.”
Eli Manning told Mike Francesa: “We feel if we take care of our business — if we win these games, we’ll be in a good spot to make the playoffs.”
The Miami Dolphins suspended guard Richie Incognito late Sunday for misconduct related to the treatment of teammate Jonathan Martin, who abruptly left the team a week ago to receive help for emotional issues.
If A-Rod, Bonds, Sosa, etc., are banned from baseball’s Hall of Fame, then Papi, no matter how Big, should share their cell — says Jason Keidel.
“At our last game at MetLife Stadium, our fans were cheering like crazy for us. Obviously they’re disappointed like we’re disappointed that our record is what it is, but when you go to MetLife, our fans bring it.”
“You know, I wasn’t,” the 67-year-old told Francesa. “Frustration, yeah. Disappointment, no doubt … The guys have been resilient and tough. They’ve let all the criticism — at least to a certain extent — bounce off their back.”
“Obviously no one in this division is running away with anything, and you never know what can happen,” Manning told WFAN host Mike Francesa. “We’ve got a lot of football (left), and (we’re) not too far behind.”
Sometimes a run ends, no matter who leads it. Yet the message remains the same with the Giants, and that message resonates just as loudly in loss as it does in victory.
This got angry. It got heated. It made for some very, very interesting radio. We don’t even know where to begin with this one, folks. Words can’t do the interview justice. It simply must be listened to.
Alex Rodriguez wants his grievance hearing made public, yet so far baseball has not agreed. However, that doesn’t mean what’s being discussed in front of arbitrator Fredric Horowitz isn’t getting out there anyway.
Speaking to WFAN’s Mike Francesa during his usual time slot on Tuesday, the Giants’ embattled quarterback spoke in glowing terms of how his team took apart the Minnesota Vikings, 23-7 on Monday night for its first win of the season.
“I’m not (losing confidence),” the three-time Pro Bowler told Francesa. “You can’t get gun-shy as a quarterback. It didn’t affect me during the game … Most of it is just decision-making.”
