The Yankees will open a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Monday, and as far as manager Joe Girardi is concerned, Alex Rodriguez will be in the lineup. With suspensions likely to be announced Monday, Girardi said Sunday morning that if Rodriguez makes it to Chicago and is activated, he will be playing that night, according to CBSSports.com. “Yeah,” Girardi said. “I’m not going to bring him up and sit him.” The Yankees third baseman rubbed Major League Baseball the wrong way with his postgame comments Friday night after his rehab game, and MLB since announced they would no longer negotiate a settlement with Rodriguez. Facing a reported 214-game ban, Girardi and the rest of the Yankees are anxious to see how the saga plays out. “I think all of us are curious as to what’s going to happen,” Girardi said. “Is Alex going to be a player for us tomorrow, what’s going to happen with the other guys.” If Rodriguez is available to play, Girardi doesn’t envision any problems within

And here is what happened on A-Rod’s first official day back in the pinstripes:
- MLB finally handed out the infamous Biogenesis suspensions yesterday, and A-Rod got the heftiest at 211-games. The other 12 players busted will sit out 50-games, which is standard...
It is certainly no secret that Yankees radio broadcaster Suzyn Waldman sees things through a Yankees-colored light to the point that she probably wears pinstriped pajamas. But she found a new way to prove that sometimes, at least, she just doesn’t see all of reality.
Waldman and longtime radio partner John Sterling were on hand Monday night in Chicago where Yankees third baseman...
Alex Rodriguez is back to talking again.
Friday has come and gone, and with it Arod hasn’t been banned in perpetuity, nor has he even been suspended. Rodriguez spoke to the media after a rehab game, in which he homered on Friday and was all too candid.
Arod confessed that he’s ready to start now and then went on to plant another seed in his conspiracy allegations. When speaking...
Alex Rodriguez just talked himself out of a possible settlement with Major League Baseball and faces a 214-game suspension to be handed down on Monday the Daily News has learned.

Alex Rodriguez will reportedly appeal any suspension levied by MLB in connection to Biogensis and PEDs. This meme shows what his defense will be.
There he was in front of a microphone just prior to the Yankees game against the White Sox. Alex Rodriguez, who the league had just hours earlier said they would suspend him on Thursday for the remainder of the 2013 season and all of 2014, was talking of how he would use the grievance process afforded him by the league and MLBPA’s drug agreement, yet never answered whether he ever...
Alex Rodriguez is ready to play and ready to put up a fight. He certainly doesn't see the next games possibly being his last with the threat of a lifetime ban or a lengthy suspension from major league baseball over his head.
The much-maligned 14-time All-Star who has 647 career home runs hit a two-run homer for the Class AA Trenton Thunder over five innings of play in a 6-2...
WFAN cut to every Alex Rodriguez at bat last night. Besides the overkill, you had the demented one, Suzyn Waldman, hearing and seeing things. Sure, cheers for Arod but -- wow, Friday's going to be like Kim Jong-un has returned home.

A total of 12 players, not named Alex Rodriguez, have been suspended in consequence for their involvement with the shady South Florida drug clinic known as Biogenesis. All 12 have accepted their suspensions with none having plans to appeal.

One by one the names were read, but only one brought an immediate response from me: Jordany Valdespin of the New York Mets.
The reaction was two-fold. First laughter, because aren’t these supposed to be “performance enhancing drugs?’’ The second was this probably explains a lot about his behavior, which seemingly has been a permanent case of “Roid Rage.’’
When news broke thatMajor League Baseball had suspended Alex Rodriguez through 2014, opinions ranged far and wide on the punishment for the slugger and whether or not it was fair. While Rodriguez has vowed to fight the suspension, one person had an interesting theory on why A-Rod has had so many troubles lately.
Former Florida Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen chimed in with his thoughts...
It was a dark day for baseball.
No, it was a great day for baseball.
How about we just agree it was an important day in baseball history?

However you feel about the Alex Rodriguez debacle, you have to agree that it makes for excellent baseball television. Personally, I’m quite enjoying the circus – schadenfreude has always been one of my strong suits.
When A*Rod takes the field in Chicago, he’ll doubtless face a loud chorus of boos and jeers. After talking to a few Yankees fans, I don’t think...
