    Sources close to Alex Rodriguez claim the slugger is innocent, or at least not as guilty as MLB makes him sound, and is willing to go to court to prove it, according to TMZ.

    The gossip site reported on Wednesday that Rodriguez is planning to sue MLB in federal court next month if the 211-game ban, given for alleged PED use through his ties with Biogenesis, that he is currently appealing is not lifted. The sources say that Rodriguez has multiple reasons for this:

    - He hasn’t “knowingly” used PEDs since 2003.
    - He has been drug tested 11 times since 2011 and all have been negative.
    - A-Rod feels “persecuted” and the length of his suspension compared to Brewers’ Ryan Braun’s 65-game ban is “absurd.”
    – There’s “no proof” that A-Rod impeded MLB’s investigation.

    This could just be bluster from the Rodriguez camp as they aim to put some pressure on baseball and get his side of the story out with an appeals process that is not expected to be completed until November or December.

    I almost want this to happen…so that MLB can have Alex testify, under oath, on the stand, and answer questions on certain topics.

      I like his chances. MLB paid money to less than upstanding people for their information. I’m sure their testimony in court would be highly scrutinized. If he’s innocent he should definitely go for it. If not and he does this, well, he’s just a dumbass.

      That’s great! Good for ARod. I am not a fan of ARod, but all this drama about the suspension, how MLB went about it all, has somehow made ARod into the victim for a lot more people. I am now one of those people.

      I do have to thank MLB for one thing, they made me realize that I loathe MLB and the Yankees F.O. more than ARod. Eff’em all!

      Wait, you mean A-Rod would have to get up in front of an audience and act phony and disingenuous and lie? :-)
