The dramatic saga between the Yankees and Alex Rodriguez continues to develop and worsen by the day.
Rodriguez has started the process of filing a medical grievance against the Yankees, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com.
Marchand reports that Rodriguez’s lawyers contacted the Major League Baseball Players Association within the last two weeks to begin the process with claims that the Yankees have mishandled the third baseman’s hip injury dating back to last season’s playoffs.
On Saturday, Rodriguez’s lawyer Joseph Tacopina told The New York Times that the Yankees misled Rodriguez about the extent of his injury in an effort to conspire to keep him off the field. That same day, Yankees team president Randy Levine fired back — offering to release all of the team’s medical records, and he also challenged Rodriguez to file a grievance if he believed he didn’t receive the best care from the team’s medical staff.
Tacopina alleges that the Yankees allowed Rodriguez to struggle...

A-Rod lawyer: Yanks prez Randy Levine told doc operating on him: "I don't ever want to see him on the field again." Crazy allegation.
This Red Sox fan was publicly shamed following his cameo appearance during the Red Sox-Yankees game on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball this weekend. Not only does he proclaim Alex Rodriguez to be a “looser” but the icing on the cake is the absolutely unnecessary t-period o-period at the top. Be better than this, Boston.

It's an A-bomb for A-Rod -- and his attorney! Joseph Tacopina, one of Alex Rodriguez's attorneys, started a new war with the Yankees -- or maybe just continued the current war -- when he unleashed some pretty strong accusations against the team, and against Major League Baseball. Here's a link to the New York Times article with the accusations. And here's what I think...
