Pro Sports Daily:
Alex Rodriguez’s appeal hearing against Major League Baseball is set to resume on Wednesday Oct. 16 according to multiple industry sources.
The hearing will last through the end of next week and is then expected to adjourn again until after the World Series.
The first week of the hearing was dominated by the testimony of MLB star witness Anthony Bosch the founder of the now-closed South Florida anti-aging clinic Biogenesis.
Bosch is purported to have evidence documenting his communication with Rodriguez concerning Rodriguez’s alleged illegal performance-enhancing drug usage. Rodriguez’s attorney Joseph Tacopina spent the bulk of Thursday and Friday cross-examining Bosch.
Amid last week’s activity in the hearing room at Major League Baseball’s Park Avenue headquarters Rodriguez filed two lawsuits one against MLB and commissioner Bud Selig and the other against Yankees team physician Christopher Ahmad and his hospital Columbia-Presbyterian.

New York Yankees inherited owner Hal Steinbrenner was on the Mike Francesa Show yesterday, and all I can say is he still doesn’t get it.

Hal acknowledged that the 2013 season was a disappointment.
He also admitted that the Yankees development within their farm system has not panned out as they were hoping.
Hank Steinbrenner wants Joe Girardi to remain with the New York Yankees and is awaiting the manager's decision on a new contract.
Girardi's current deal expires at the end of the month, and the team offered a new agreement last week.
''It's up to him now,'' Steinbrenner, the team's co-chairman, said Tuesday.
The Yankees failed to make the playoffs...
The Yankees began their offseason by focusing on re-signing manager Joe Girardi as quickly as possible and preventing him from hitting the open market. As Hal Steinbrenner made clear on Tuesday the team will take a very different approach with Robinson Cano.
“It sounds like he wants to go out and test the market and talk to whoever he needs or wants to talk to" the Yankees...
We've talked a lot over the past few days about Joe Girardi's contract situation as he decides his future with the Yankees, but who would replace him if he decided he wanted to leave the Yankees?
ESPN recently put out a list answering just that question. There are some surprises on the list, as well as some household names:
The Yankees accomplished their first order of business for the offseason bringing back manager Joe Girardi on a four-year deal the team announced this afternoon.
Girardi had sat on the offer since Friday. He finished up a three-year contract worth $9 million after 2013. Girardi was believed to receive a significant raise in this deal. The Yankees did not want to lose Girardi to...
Brian Cashman, general manager of the New York Yankees, met with his scouting department on Tuesday. This was the second day of a week long plan to discuss the team's off season plans. One part of the plan is to decrease the salary under the $189 million luxury-tax threshold.
Managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner insisted that this will be done in a way that will not...
This post was supposed to be about Joe Girardi's new contract with the Yankees. I thought I would be writing about the new deal and speculating about what he would do during the life of it. I also thought I would be writing about it sooner than today. We were all given the impression that the negotiation would be quick and painless and that Girardi would, by now, be preparing...
So I see that Hal Steinbrenner made the media rounds yesterday, telling reporters and sports yakkers gems like "I think Brian [Cashman] did a great job" as general manager. (What high standards, eh? If Cashman did a great job this year, then I would hate to think what Hal considers a bad job?) I wonder what took Hal so long to finally speak out about the season. After all...
Is Curtis Granderson on his way out of the Bronx?
Granderson just completed his fourth season with the New York Yankees and is a free agent this winter. The veteran outfielder has put up impressive numbers during his 10-year career -- playing the first six seasons with the Detroit Tigers.
In 2011, he led the majors with 136 runs and was second in homers with 41, while leading the...
Don’t worry Yankees fans, Joe Girardi won’t be leaving the Bronx in the offseason.
The veteran manager, who led New York to a World Series championship in 2009 and has reached the playoffs in four of his six seasons with the club, agreed to a four-year, $16 million deal on Wednesday to remain in pinstripes, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Girardi’s previous contract...
According to a story via ESPN, the New York Yankees have decided to bring back manager Joe Girardi, even though the team missed the playoffs this season.
Joe Girardi has signed a four-year contract to return as the New York Yankees‘ manager, the team announced Wednesday.
Girardi, who turns 49 later this month, managed the Yankees to an 85-77 record this past season, his sixth...
Yesterday, the billion dollar voice of Yankee owner Hal Steinbrenner appeared unto ESPN and WFAN radio, assuring his lost tribe that 2013 was an aberration, and that His Ownership will do what it takes to put the Bombers back on course next season.As Hal spoke, the Cardinals, Tigers, As and Rays - franchises that win year after year on far less than the Yankees spend - were still...
We’re sure you didn’t miss it a few weeks ago, but after Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte went to the mound and removed their (now) former teammate, Mariano Rivera, from the Yankees Stadium mound for the last time—choking us up more than we have in awhile—we started thinking about how cool it must have been […]
When looking back on the 2013 season in which the St. Lucie Mets were able to enjoy, its no wonder why they remained in contention most of the second half. The team was made up of real good ball players, and if not for some injuries to key pitchers down the stretch, they may have stormed into the playoffs and taken it all.
I had the privilege of interviewing a few of their players...
After speculation that he would go home and manage the Chicago Cubs, the Yankees have announced that they have re-signed Joe Girardi. The new deal will keep the manager in pinstripes through the 2017 season, and is worth a total of $16 million which could increase due to bonuses.
Girardi, who turns 49 next week, is coming off what is probably his best year as a manager, even though...
