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.
Baseball star Albert Pujols is suing former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark for saying on his radio show that Pujols used steroids.
It would seem virtually impossible (absent an unlikely settlement) for the arbitration to be over in the allotted five days.
A-Rod makes it impossible for anyone but his lawyers to defend him. And they do so because he pays them. What’s your excuse?
The PED crucible, which we hoped would be microscopic by now, just won’t go away. It’s turned into a twisted game show of “Name That Cheat.”
An imposter claiming to be Spencer called the station and admitted to taking steroids, saying, “I have used steroids in the past … Did I ever see anyone using them? Absolutely.”
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.
The eyes of America are indeed on the Bronx these days where a certain slugger will make his home debut tonight at Yankee Stadium.
Alex Rodriguez is a cheater. That is a fact and it is accepted by pretty much the entire sports universe — baseball executives, writers, broadcasters and fans. A cheater?
“I’ve got my own feelings on particular people in MLB, you know, how they approached my situation,” Roger Clemens said. “I don’t know about it, and I don’t care about it, to tell you the truth.”
It’s been a lot to digest — that’s for sure. In question-and-answer form, here is a look at the issues and implications of Major League Baseball’s possible suspension of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez is done. Make it easy on yourself, A-Rod, and go away. Let the pastime shed the past you did so much to stain. On June 6 I called for A-Rod to retire, and was told my logic was laughable. Not so funny anymore, is it?
The best possible outcome for Rodriguez would be a 150-game suspension.
He was linked to Biogenesis in a report in January by Miami New Times. It was not known whether Rodriguez refused to answer MLB’s questions.
Rocker is still making noise, a decade after the disgraced pitcher last played in the big leagues.
