He said he wasn’t going down without a fight!
Alex Rodriguez has been embroiled in a scandal involving PED use and his connection to the Biogenesis clinic, but it may all be over soon.
Major League Baseball was reportedly going to try and ban the New York Yankee from baseball for life, but since his lawyer will take the case to arbitration, the league is having second thoughts.
So, instead of that, sources are saying that A-Rod’s people are talking with MLB’s people to try and get them to just agree to a long suspension through next season.
However, according to an ESPN report:
“Several sources have told "Outside the Lines" that some MLB officials have pushed for a lifetime ban, saying they would rather force Rodriguez to defend himself than agree to a suspension that allows him play while he appeals.”
They must have some serious dirt on this guy!
We’ll keep you posted on how this saga continues to play out.
