New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has sued Major League Baseball, accusing it of buying the cooperation of Anthony Bosch, the head of the Biogenesis clinic at the heart of the recent performance-enhancing drug scandal, in an effort to force him from the sport, reports The New York Times. In the complaint, Rodriguez’s lawyers claim an investigator paid $150,000 in cash for records related to Rodriguez, which were apparently stolen. A portion of the cash “was handed off in a bag at a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., area restaurant,” the lawsuit says. The lawsuit specifically accuses Major League Baseball of engaging in “tortious interference,” essentially interfering with Rodriguez’s existing contracts and future business relationships. Rodriguez, who has been attending grievance hearings related to the 211-game suspension handed down by Major League Baseball, has released a statement: “The entire legal dynamic is very complex, and my legal team is doing what they need to in order to vindicate me and pursue all of my rights. This matter is entirely separate from the ongoing arbitration. I look forward to the arbitration proceedings continuing, and for the day to come when I can share my story with the public and my supporters.” The post Alex Rodriguez sues MLB appeared first on Sports Glory.
