Just when you thought you’d seen and heard it all from Alex Rodriguez, news has emerged that he’s suing MLB. That’s right, not only is A-Fraud going down swinging, he’s giving baseball a taste of its own medicine. I would be shocked if we were talking about any other player in league history, but not when it comes to this clown.
A-Roid is alleging in his lawsuit that MLB paid Tony Bosch (Biogenesis founder) $5 million to cooperate with them to help force him out of baseball. Here’s what the official suit states: “to improperly marshal evidence that they hope to use to destroy the reputation and career of Alex Rodriguez, one of the most accomplished major league baseball players of all time.”
True baseball fans are hoping that this is just another case of Rodriguez blowing smoke. His back is against the wall in a big way, so a lawsuit was one of the last moves he had left. Would I put it past MLB to pay Bosch to help them sink A-Roid for good? No. But if they did partake in such a thing, you’d hope they did it in an untraceable manner. That might not be the case if A-Fraud is taking them to court, though.
It’s entirely possibly that this whole thing is just a way for the former slugger to gain leverage against MLB. In his mind, he might view this lawsuit as something that can get baseball to drop his massive pending suspension.
Here’s to hoping that this latest move by the most disgraceful player in baseball, blows up squarely in his face.
