The Victory Formation:
Major League Baseball wants to nail alleged performance-enhancing drug users to the wall, especially Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, two who have already skated by. But they will need more proof than they currently have, and they will have to pony-up the money if they way. Porter Fischer wants to be paid for the documents he claims to be in possession of, that prove that the aforementioned players, along with 100+ others, purchased PEDs from the Miami-based clinic. Porter originally provided copies of certain documents to the Miami New-Times, who first reported the story earlier in the Spring. Fischer met with MLB on Tuesday, and according to TMZ made his demands quite clear. Fischer’s attorney tells TMZ, his client discussed a possible deal with MLB … in which the league would acquire the drug-purchasing records of more than 100 MLB players (including A-Rod and Ryan Braun) — but it’s gonna cost ‘em. Sources close to the investigation tell us, the MLB has yet to make an official offer for the goods … but as it stands, Fischer won’t settle for less than a million. Fischer comes across as scorned former lover employee of Biogenesis owner Tony Bosch. His current life [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Maybe, Alex Rodriguez's bad rap is overblown.
A-Rod, who spent part of his career attracting heavy criticism for how he conducts himself around the media and fellow players -- displayed some goodwill during his rehab stint in South Carolina.

Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez grounded out twice and turned a double play Wednesday night in the second game of his minor league rehab stint with Class-A Charleston.
Rodriguez is recovering from left hip surgery in January. He spent time in the dugout signing items for his teammates after he came out, and then jogged out to the right-field stands to sign for fans.
Alex Rodriguez says he'll likely need all 20 rehabilitation games allowed to work back into playing shape before returning to the Yankees. And he is confident he'll be back this season.

There is no player who has played the game of baseball better than Alex Rodriguez over the past 18 years. From his defensive play at shortstop and third base, to his ability to hit for average and power, along with a knack for stealing bases, the New York Yankees beleaguered and sometimes toxic third baseman has done it all better than anyone during his career. But he is more of...

For weeks now, not much has happened with Major League Baseball’s Biogenesis investigation. About a month ago, it was revealed that Tony Bosch, the founder of the Miami anti-aging clinic, had agreed to cooperate with MLB and reveal information to them. However, since that time, not much verifiable information has come out on the case.
However, according to one report, MLB may soon...
Salty Alex Rodriguez told USA Today in no uncertain terms he is not going to $#%&, &^%$ing quit.Maybe he can challenge Brian Cashman to a swearing contest.Too hungover to post. Hurts troo much. See? I can't even type. That's how bad it is. &%$#!
It’s no secret that the Yankees took their place in ‘all time sports blunders’ history by signing Alex Rodriguez on for an additional ten years, at the hefty price of $275 million. But the contact the Angels offered Albert Pujols is proving to be even more of a disaster than the one bestowed upon Arod.
The warning signs were there, the Angels simply chose to avoid them...
PAYING NO MIND
Saying "I know people think I’m nuts," Alex Rodriguez insists he’s not worried about what people say, he just wants the chance to compete on the field.
PAY UP, BUD
Porter Fischer, the whistleblower behind the Biogenesis scandal, has demanded $1 million from Major League Baseball in exchange for documents.
The level of starpower that the New York Yankees are putting on the field this season is extremely low. There's no Derek Jeter, there's no Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, and Kevin Youkilis have all only played a handful of games, and the Bronx Bombers are only four games above .500 and fourth in the AL East. That lack of production on the field has resulted...
