        < Back to front page Text size  +   A-Rod attorney denies attacking Ortiz Posted by Peter Abraham, Globe Staff   January 14, 2014 07:59 

     

    By Peter Abraham, Globe Staff

    Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is one of the few major league players to voice support for Alex Rodriguez in recent months.

    Ortiz took Rodriguez out for dinner in Boston late last season after the controversial Yankees third baseman was mercilessly booed at Fenway Park. Ortiz even criticized teammate Ryan Dempster for throwing at Rodriguez.

    In December, Ortiz invited Rodriguez to his charity event in the Dominican Republic.

    So much for that goodwill. On Tuesday, Rodriguez's lead attorney seemed to cast aspersions on Ortiz during an interview with ESPN Radio.

    Joe Tacopina said he would not name other players accused of using performance-enhancing drugs, "but some of them are God-like in Boston right now."

    The host, Colin Cowherd, did not challenge Tacopina's accusation.

    In 2009, the New York Times reported that Ortiz tested positive for an unnamed substance during a 2003 survey test.

    Rodriguez was suspended for the entire 2014 season for using PEDs and obstructing an investigation into his use. On Monday, he sued Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association in federal court in an attempt to overturn the ban.

    The suit went so far as to criticize MLBPA executive director Michael Weiner, who died in November after a long battle with cancer. Now Ortiz is an apparent target of his legal team.

    During the ESPN Radio interview, Tacopina referred to Rodriguez as an "outstanding human being."

    Ortiz could not be reached for comment.

    UPDATE, 10:45 p.m.: Tacopina, via an email to the Globe, denied he was alluding to Ortiz in his comments. But he would not say who he was referring to.

    It is unclear what other Boston athlete fits the description given by Tacopino

    Funny that I posted this (AROD/Tacopina - Papi) story as it was breaking and the post was deleted within minutes by the mods.

    Don't understand.

    Just put it out there and let everyone kick it around.

    Tacopina has vowed to fight this case all the way through the system. As long as ARod keeps paying him.

    I think it depends who sees it, TWM. I posted an article from the Boston Globe today, on the Remy thread, and it was deleted, quickly. I reposted it several hours ago, it's still there.

    Exactly, gale. What the hell does he care, if A-ROD wants to continues to make an a*# of himself

    Jeff Passan ‏@JeffPassan 1h

    The backlash against A-Rod among players is massive. One player said Rodriguez "needs to be scared of coming back"

     

    View this content on Yahoo Sports's website Sources: MLB Players Association would expel A-Rod – if it could

    The Players Association legally can't kick out Alex Rodriguez, but they are incensed that he sued the union and hinted eventually there could be on-field repercussions.

    Heh. Makes you wonder what kind of reception will await A-Rod if he manages to hobble back onto the field in 2015.

    The question is, will the Yankees pay him enough to go away.

    In all honesty, I think he's delusional.  I truly think he has some mental/emotional issues.  I think he's told the same lies so many times that now HE believes them.  He sees himself as being a victim and he's going to pursue it to the bitter end - and even then he's going to believe he was wronged.

    But... I'm not a doctor and ...well... you know the rest.
