If A-Rod is going out, he is going out swinging.
Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball late Thursday, accusing it of buying the cooperation of Anthony Bosch, the head of an anti-aging clinic at the center of a doping scandal, as part of a continuing âwitch huntâ to force him out of the sport.
In the complaint, Rodriguezâs lawyers claim an investigator paid $150,000 in cash for records related to Rodriguez, which were apparently stolen. A portion of the cash âwas handed off in a bag at a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., area restaurant,â the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit specifically accuses Major League Baseball of engaging in âtortious interference,â essentially interfering with Rodriguezâs existing contracts and future business relationships.
A-Rod is dirty, but MLB is even dirtier, so I hope he wins his suit.
