There are still TONS of questions swirling around Alex Rodriguez's HUGE suspension and his ongoing legal battle with the MLB, so his defense attorney Joe Tacopina decided to make an appearance on the Today show to clear things up.
Well, sort of!
Joe kicks things off by saying how much he would love to discuss the feud, but due to a confidentiality clause put in place by the MLB, he can't!
"If the vice president of Major League Baseball would be good enough to waive the confidentiality clause, I would love nothing more than to talk about Alex Rodriguez's testing history, and various things. I would love nothing more."
It was at that exact moment that Matt Lauer's ears perked up and he presented Joe with a letter sent by MLB overnight saying if he signed the letter on behalf of A-Rod, they would waive the clause and both sides would be free to talk openly about the case!
Caught off guard, he sidesteps the question and says he'll need some time to look over the document!
Joe goes on to say that none of their evidence will hold up in court, because the MLB's main source Anthony Bosch is unreliable.
Once again, Matt was ready to pounce as he quickly pointed out that A-Rod had paid some of Anthony's legal fees earlier this year, showing that the two obviously had some sort of connection!
Unfortunately, Joe says he can't say anything about it because of the confidentiality clause! Oh, if he would have only signed those papers! Ha!
Ch-ch-check out the cringe-worthy interview (above)!
