• A-Rod Sues MLB & Selig

    The news today –

    New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball and its Commissioner Bud Selig, accusing them of improperly gathering evidence to destroy his reputation and career.

    Rodriguez, suspended from 211 games by Major League Baseball for doping, claims MLB interfered with his contracts and business relationships.

    The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, seeks unspecified damages.

    If Richard Overton can sue Budweiser, and, if Allen Heckard can sue Michael Jordan, then, hey, why can’t A-Rod sue baseball and Bud?

      How long until Alex sues the Yankees?

      MLB’s response:

      “For the more than four decades that we have had a collective bargaining relationship with the Major League Baseball Players Association, every player and club dispute has gone through the jointly agreed upon grievance process. This lawsuit is a clear violation of the confidentiality provisions of our drug program, and it is nothing more than a desperate attempt to circumvent the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

      “While we vehemently deny the allegations in the complaint, none of those allegations is relevant to the real issue: whether Mr. Rodriguez violated the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by using and possessing numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including Testosterone and human Growth Hormone, over the course of multiple years and whether he violated the Basic Agreement by attempting to cover-up his violations of the Program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the Office of the Commissioner’s investigation.”

      MLB decided they wanted to hold Rodriguez’s hearing during the playoffs so, since it was likely that each side would be making statements to the press, this isn’t A-Rod upstaging the playoffs the way you’re spinning it.

      @ MJ Recanati:

      Arod’s lawsuits have nothing to do w/ the hearings. There was no need to file them during the postseason…except his need to upstage the postseason again.
