    I finally finished reading A-Rod’s lawsuit against Major League Baseball.  If you haven’t read it, go here. It may be one of those most over-the-top, Earth-scorching lawsuits I’ve ever seen. Certainly in a sports context. It’s Alex Rodriguez attempting to put Bud Selig and Major League Baseball on trial for Collusion against free agents in the…

  2. Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball

    Oct 4, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball. Here’s a link to the complaint. It’s a barnburner. And hey, a HardballTalk post is quoted in paragraph 37! In the complaint Bud Selig and Major League Baseball are accused of acting underhandedly, pursuing A-Rod in a “witch hunt,” violating the Joint Drug Agreement and Collective Bargaining Agreement and…

  3. Bill Madden is still talking about Alex Rodriguez for some reason

    Sep 27, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v New York Yankees

    It’s almost admirable to see a guy who has been as wrong on an issue as Bill Madden of the Daily News has been on A-Rod keep plugging away at it anyway. Over the summer Madden reported that A-Rod was looking for a way to retire. He did not retire. He reported that A-Rod was…

    Sep 26, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Bud Selig

    Bud Selig insisted way back in July of 2012 that he planned to step down following the 2014 season and today he made it official, announcing that he will cease being Commissioner in January of 2015. Selig, who will turn 80 in July, has been running MLB since 1992, for six years as interim Commissioner…

    It’s official: the Yankees’ season is over after 162 games for just the second time in the wild card era. The Bombers were eliminated from contention when the Indians topped the White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday evening. Just a few minutes later, they wrapped up an 8-3 loss to the Rays, leaving them with an…

    Sep 25, 2013, 11:08 AM EDT

    Roger Clemens

    The Yankees finish in Houston. And, as has happened in every other city Mariano Rivera has bid farewell, he will get a sendoff there too. And an old friend will be part of that: Rivera’s final goodbye ceremony will come in Houston, where the Yankees will play their last game of the regular season against…

  8. Jason Giambi walks off for Indians after Chris Perez blows lead

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Jason Giambi

    There’s a little magic left in Jason Giambi‘s bat after all. The 42-year-old former MVP, who entered with a .177 average in 181 at-bats this season, hit a walkoff homer off Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Indians a 5-4 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. It was the Indians’…

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    Alex Rodriguez‘s appeal is slated to begin on Monday in New York. Today the New York Times has a rundown of his legal and P.R. team. This quote sums it up pretty well: “Everyone has a right to the best defense money can buy, and Alex Rodriguez has got a lot of money, so he’s…

    Sep 20, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v New York Yankees

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez put his team up 5-1 with a seventh-inning grand slam against Giants reliever George Kontos. The slam was Rodriguez’s 24th of his career, overtaking Yankees great Lou Gehrig’s Major League record. David Robertson and Mariano Rivera teamed up to keep the Giants off the board in the eighth and ninth…

  11. Alex Rodriguez had no idea Andy Pettitte was retiring

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    a-rod reuters yankees

    Once Yankees starter Andy Pettitte made the announcement that he is calling it quits after the 2013 season ends, it seemed like everybody on planet Earth knew about it. Columns about the lefty’s Hall of Fame case were quickly scrawled and editorials about his history with performance-enhancing drug use made the rounds. One player, though,…

  12. Mariano Rivera is Alex Rodriguez’s role model

    Mariano Rivera Getty

    Alex Rodriguez on Mariano Rivera, after calling him not just one of the best pitchers ever, but one of the best athletes of all time in any sport: . . . the biggest compliment or the biggest way I can share with all our fans and specially Mariano Rivera fans is that when the moment…

  13. The Yankees need to get a shortstop this winter

    Sep 16, 2013, 9:26 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    It’s not often that I agree with John Harper of the Daily News, but I think his latest column is pretty much on point. The point: the Yankees can’t take a wait-and-see approach with Derek Jeter‘s health and effectiveness. They need to get an everyday shortstop this winter, making it official that Jeter will be…

  14. Red Sox sweep away Yankees to continue incredible run

    Sep 15, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Red Sox' Bogaerts singles in the seventh inning of their American League MLB baseball game against the Yankees at Fenway Park in Boston

    Mariano Rivera was honored Sunday prior to his last ever regular-season appearance at Fenway Park. The Red Sox made sure that was the only time he’d see the mound all weekend. The Red Sox shook off a first-inning Yankees run with three of their own and routed the Bombers 9-2 for a three-game sweep in…

  15. Alex Rodriguez limited to DH duties due to sore hamstring

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Bothered by a sore left hamstring, Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start out of the DH spot this afternoon against the Red Sox. He’s nowhere close to 100 percent at the moment, as he had the chance to score the go-ahead run last night on a double by Robinson Cano, but had to…

  16. Chris Davis joins the 50-homer club

    Sep 13, 2013, 9:26 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis became the first Major Leaguer to hit 50 home runs in a single season since Jose Bautista hit 54 in 2010. With the game tied 3-3 in the top of the eighth, Davis drove a Steve Delabar 2-2 change-up to left-center for his milestone home run, putting the Orioles ahead…

  17. A-Rod is the “face of baseball” among people who aren’t really baseball fans

    Sep 12, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Jayson Stark wrote a column not long ago asking readers to tell him who they think the “Face of Baseball” is. Today he has results of it, and the winner — with a plurality of the votes — is Alex Rodriguez.  But there’s some interesting fine print to be read on that: Only 17 percent…

  18. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

  19. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…

  20. Buck Showalter, Joe Girardi have to be restrained after first inning

    Sep 9, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    Orioles manager Buck Showalter is held back by umpires while challenging Yankees manager Girardi following an unknown incident in the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    Things got feisty Monday night, Buck Showalter and Joe Girardi both wanted a piece of one another after the first inning of Yankees-Orioles game in Baltimore. It appears that the incident started when Girardi started yelling out of the dugout towards Orioles third-base coach Bobby Dickerson, either to perhaps accuse him of sign-stealing or to…

  21. Alex Rodriguez is batting second for the first time since 2006

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi has moved Alex Rodriguez to the second spot in the lineup tonight, in between leadoff man Brett Gardner and No. 3 hitter Robinson Cano.

  23. MLB may not want A-Rod in the playoffs, but they’ll get over it

    Sep 6, 2013, 8:52 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    I don’t know if the Yankees will close the 2.5 game gap between them and the playoffs, but they might. And if they do, Mike Lupica argues, the league will hate it: Now it is September of 2013, what the Yankees hope will be a big September as they try to clinch a wild card…

  24. A-Rod could go to federal court before fighting his suspension in arbitration

    Sep 3, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters
