    A-Rod Heads the List of 2015 MLB All-Star Snubs

    On Sunday MLB revealed which players were elected starters for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. On Monday they released the player selections, manager selections, and candidates for the “final player” vote. As always, there are plenty of questionable selections and obvious snubs.

    Alex Rodriguez has been public enemy #1 in the baseball world over the past couple of years, but he’s done anything and everything he can to change that this season.  And is seems to be working, as the Yankees slugger was cheered, not booed, after he drilled a home run off Justin Verlander on Friday […]

    Alex Rodriguez is having an improbably good season. The guy is 39-year-old and coming off a one-year ban for taking and lying about taking performance enhancing drugs, but somehow he is on pace to hit .282/.373/.541 with 34 home runs and 84 runs batted in. As a result, fickle Yankees fans—who last year at this […]

    It happened earlier today during a Grapefruit League game against the hated Boston Red Sox, Alex Rodriguez hit a solo home run to left-center field, cutting the Yankees’ deficit to 5-3 in the bottom of the fourth inning.  It was his first home run in Spring Training, and I’m sure the New York tabloids will find […]

    9 Things the A-Rod Apology Should Definitely Include

    Early yesterday, a hand-written A-Rod apology made the rounds on news outlets and social media. It was directed to his fans (how Bohemian), and it apologized for…well, pretty much just for being A-Rod. Now, while this A-Rod apology is definitely a step in the right direction, it was also pretty vague. I think what we really need is a […]

    Alex Rodriguez issued an apology today to Major League Baseball, the New York Yankees, the Steinbrenners, the MLB Players Association, and most importantly, the fans.  It is not a surprising move from the much-maligned millionaire ballplayer.  What is surprising is the way the apology was issued, via a hand-written letter that was released by MLB.com.

    New Book Claims MLB Gave A-Rod Permission to Use PEDs in 2007 and 2008

    Well, the story of MLB’s crusade to rid baseball of Alex Rodriguez—er, steroids—just got a lot more complicated. In a new book called Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis and the Quest to End Baseball’s Steroid Era, authors Tim Elfrink (the journalist who broke the Biogenesis story) and Gus Garcia Roberts claim that in 2007, Alex Rodriguez […]
