    According to a New York mag report, A-Rod referred to PEDs as ‘food’ in text messages

    In the seemingly never-ending saga regarding Alex Rodriguez’s alleged use of performance-enhancing drugs, new allegations have surfaced that indicate the New York Yankees slugger used the code word “food” in text messages when communicating with Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch when discussing and ordering PEDs. The inflammatory, in-depth and fascinating report in New York magazine alleges that […]The post According to a New York mag report, A-Rod referred to PEDs as ‘food’ in text messages appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

    As the day for arbitrator Fredric Horowitz to rule on Rodriguez's appeal of his 211-game ban draws near -- some think it could come as soon as Friday -- the beleaguered slugger has discussed the possibility of accepting a reduced ban without attempting to get an injunction delaying his punishment, according to a source in Rodriguez's camp.

    According to the source, a suspension longer than 100 games will likely lead Rodriguez and his attorneys to pursue a temporary restraining order against Horowitz's ruling in federal court.

    If he is given a shorter suspension, however, "then Alex will have some things to think about," the source told ESPNNewYork.com.

    According to the source, who has been privy to some internal discussions in the Rodriguez camp, the player is weighing the financial implications of continuing to fight this battle versus accepting a suspension that will allow him to take the field sometime in the second half of the coming season.

    Taking his battle into the courtroom will cost Rodriguez "at least $10 million, with no guarantee of winning," said the source, while a 100-game ban would cost him $15,425,000 of his scheduled $25 million salary for 2014.

    Thats a no brainer: you suspend AROD for a token number of games then allow him to come back, unwanted, to a Yankee team that is worse because of it and still has to pay him. We all know what he did; his punishment is to play in purgatory.

    One official said the Yankees could go as far as to have Rodriguez on the minor league side but instruct their coaches to basically ignore him -- to not hit him grounders or throw him batting practice.

    To prevent the media circus from disrupting their training, the Yankees could cut Rodriguez -- whom they now owe $61 million from 2015-2017 -- but they would be responsible for paying him anyway. There have been no indications from the Yankees they are thinking about cutting him.

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/10278774/alex-rodriguez-2014-ban-leaves-new-york-yankees-hal-steinbrenner-choice

    The hard reality is that no matter what you think of A-Rod, the Yankees brought this situation upon themselves, purely out of greed. They must have suspected that at some point, Rodriguez would get exposed as a steroid user; his numbers were simply too good to be true.

    Instead, they chose to see records being broken in a Yankees uniform, seats being filled, merchandise moved, and money shoveled in. That is why the Steinbrenner Bros. chose to publicly undermine their own GM, who had vowed he would not negotiate with A-Rod if he opted out of his contract in 2007. It is why they chose to bid against themselves in giving him a raise from his original 10-year, $252 million contract, which was suddenly characterized as inadequate. It is why they allowed five home run clauses, at $6 million a pop, to be built in on top of the $275 million they were guaranteeing him.

    And that is why Alex Rodriguez is now vowing to be back in a Yankees uniform, at any cost.

    So now, Steinbrenner has two choices, both of them tough to swallow.

    He can do nothing, and ensure having Rodriguez to kick around, and vice versa, for the next four years.

    Or he can do something that may bruise his wallet but will certainly help his team -- that is, cut A-Rod loose. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but sometime between now and Feb. 19.

    Either way, Steinbrenner is parting with that $61 million.

    Now, he must decide if it's time to part with Alex Rodriguez, as well.
