There’s the old Seinfeld cliche that people are simply “rooting for laundry” when they cheer for professional sports teams. That may be true, but even the most adamant of Mets fans would agree there’s something about Derek Jeter that transcends the pinstripes that he has donned for the better part of two decades.
Alex Rodriguez is facing a 211-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal that rocked Major League Baseball last year. Rodriguez has been defiant in not admitting any wrongdoing, but reports suggest his attitude may be shifting.
A new bombshell was dropped in the Biogenesis scandal surrounding New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and this one is a doozy. ESPN is reporting that members of Rodriguez’s inner circle leaked the names of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun and his own teammate, Francisco Cervelli, to the media in the scandal.
A report has surfaced that claims if New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez doesn’t come to some kind of settlement with Major League Baseball, he will be banned for life. HardballTalk is reporting that a source told the website that a lifetime ban is definitely on the table.
USA Today’s Bob Nightengale reports that Rodriguez has no intention of negotiating a settlement with Major League Baseball and plans to appeal any suspension that is handed down.
