A-Rod’s lawyers should return to the arbitration on Thursday or Friday and continue until the end, with or without Selig’s testimony.
In what is now becoming the arbitration with no ending, Yankees President Randy Levine testified on Day 10 of the Alex Rodriguez appeal of his unprecedented 211-game suspension.
Farrell’s biggest mistake was not appealing the final play of the game — Allen Craig never touched home — or, at a minimum, protesting the game.
After a complete review of MLB Rule 7 and the obstruction definition under Rule 2, some interesting things have come to light. Also, further review of the play also adds an interesting dimension.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, neither Saltalamacchia — nor anyone else tagged Allen Craig after he missed home.
In Game 2 of the 2013 World Series, the Red Sox took a page out of the Cardinals’ defensive Game 1 nightmare and allowed the Cardinals to get out of Boston with a split.
Watch the replay and draw your own conclusions with your own eyes. There’s plenty to see. You can learn a lot about baseball and the nuances of baseball by watching this play.
The debate has been swirling now for a number of years. With the recent publication of the book, “League of Denial,” and, more importantly — for our purposes — the “FRONTLINE” documentary of the same name, a more intelligent discussion can be had on the subject.
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.
At the end of it, he may be suspended for 0 games, 211 games or somewhere in between. But contractually, right now, he simply hasn’t been damaged.
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.
It would seem virtually impossible (absent an unlikely settlement) for the arbitration to be over in the allotted five days.
Wednesday, Oct. 2, was the third day of the scheduled (for now) five-day Alex Rodriguez arbitration at 245 Park Ave.
After two days of the Alex Rodriguez arbitration, as he appeals his 211-game suspension, much has happened both inside and outside.
With the Yankees trying to hang in there but on the virtual brink of not making the playoffs, there has been a fascinating play in each of their last two games that are worth analyzing.
