In response to pinstripezac35's comment:
I think you have a blind spot when it comes to arod, maybe you should take that bag off your head
Arod is the lowest of the low and he deserves what's coming to him. No one should have sympathy for a man who cheats and lies. If he had come to the sox I would say the same thing about him.
I don't disagree
but it doesn't mean others won't
He is dragging this on because of the money and he doesn't care who he hurts. He is one selfish, self centered son of a sea cook.
he's not dragging anything out
he appealing the sentence
''money'' U make it sound so trivial
we are talking some serious money
not some fine for beating up a phone
of course he cares about it
you wouldn't fight to keep over 45 mill ?
especially if in your own mind you thought
they were being unfair to you
like I said I'm pretty sure he would of taken the 50 gms the others got for their 1st offense NP
I know you and twm want to defend the yanks at all cost but I think this arod thing is a losing battle, sorry
on a sox board at least
Part of an article by jon hayman, cbs sports:
Let's not forget that Rodriguez challenged us -- at his seemingly heartfelt Tampa, Fla., spring training press conference in 2009 ostensibly to admit what Selena Roberts learned, that he failed the 2003 survey test -- to please, whatever you do, "Judge me from this day forward."
Judgment day finally arrived.
And A-Rod didn't like it.
According to what the MLB investigation revealed, every year since 2009 he has spent cheating up a storm, lying about it and perhaps even impeding baseball's investigation into Biogenesis (that last one still has to be proved, but based on what we know about Rodriguez, it's quite believable).
A-Rod got 50 games for violating MLB's Joint Drug Agreement.
And 161 more for chutzpah.
He deserves every last one of those games in the penalty box, and more.
By rules that keep long-term baseball contracts ironclad, Rodriguez still has about $61 million coming to him via a Yankees deal that was very likely part of his massive scam on baseball, even if he has to serve the 211 games. He'll get that money even though he doesn't deserve it.
This is why mlb is being so tough on him. It's so much more than just the peds. He has brought this on himself and should take his medicine like a man. As far as the money goes I don't think it's right that his lawyer is attacking the yanks organization. Arod will do whatever it takes to get is way. This thing is going to get ugly just like arod. He is one nasty dude.
On a much happier note, I'm so glad he is wearing pin stripes instead of a B on his cap.
I was all over papi and manny when they messed up, arod does not get a pass.
