A-Roid offered a deal to avoid a lifetime ban

Recommended Posts

They are purposely letting him play this season, which is an absolute joke on so many levels. Hell, they came right out and said the appeals date was for the day after the Yankees season ends "unless the Yankees make the playoffs." So they are in writing, conceding that they are purposely allowing him to play the 2013 season out til its over.

How can Bud Selig and company knowingly allow a known cheater to continue effecting games that make a real difference in the playoffs. Wouldn't this open them up to major scrutiny at the least, and possible lawsuits at the worst? Could Peter Angelos sue MLB for allowing ARod to contribute to the Orioles missing the playoffs?

From another perspective, how do we know ARod is clean now? Maybe he figures if I'm gonna get a lifetime ban anyway, why not roid up and help the Yankees win this year? I'm being serious. Are they testing him routinely? What if he is still using the damned things? Why wouldn't he be? He's been untrustworthy for his whole career possibly, so why change now? Peter should sue the league for fraud.

This is as bad as the Black Sox scandal of 1918!

OOo1919.

Maybe he meant how scandalous it was that a team as talented as the 1918 White Sox finished under .500. I'm sure Chicagoans got together in saloons and on street corners calling for Pants Rowland's head because he batted the wrong guy 5th, stuck with his veterans way too long, and didn't even know what a bullpen was. I mean, any half-wit could see how much sense it made to trade Ray Schalk to the Boston Braves for pitching and put together a cheap, effective platoon of Otto Jacobs and Byrd Lynn.

Alex Rodriguez Flashes October Form in Costly Yankees Loss

(By Frank Isola)

It was like a trip down memory lane on Tuesday, as Alex Rodriguez went hitless in four at-bats, and failed to deliver in two crucial moments in the Blue Jays’ 2-0 victory over Joe Girardi’s punchless club.

Statement from A-Rod peeps as to report he claimed he was duped by Bosch into taking illegal stuff: "What is being reported is NOT true."

The report that says he is using an "I was duped" defense is being denied as untrue because at the time of the report, his defense team had not yet introduced any evidence. All they were doing up to that point was watching MLB present evidence and hear testimony from Bosch. His defense team was supposed to cross examine Bosch yesterday afternoon. Maybe it's a defense they "might" try once it's their turn to present their case. The "I'm just a dumb jock and didn't know what I was taking" defense isn't going to fly.

I suspect that Alex Rodriguez' lawyers know this, and are smart enough to not try it.

However, if it were completely up to Rodriguez, I believe that is so stupid and so vain (not just because I dislike him, but I really believe that he is very stupid and very vain, based on many of his actions over the years), that he would use anything as a defense, no matter how incredulous/unbelievable/ludicrous it was.

    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
