Another reason why Major League Baseball isn’t going to do anything about the A-Rod poker game report? There’s no way they can prove anything. For his part, A-Rod has denied it, saying that ”the story contains numerous factual inaccuracies.” What’s more, one of the story’s original sources says that Star Magazine got the story wrong and that A-Rod wasn’t even at the poker game in question.
And sure, A-Rod and this source may be lying. But Major League Baseball doesn’t have subpoena power. They can’t investigate this. And even if they had the power to punish Alex Rodriguez if this is were all true, they have no cause to act on such a disputed account. And they won’t.
