Major League Baseball is seeking to strike a deal with Rodriguez that will suspend him for the rest of the current season and all of next season without pay, but the deal would allow him to return to the Yankees in 2015, and potentially allow him to collect on a big portion of the remaining $100 million on his contract. The seemingly good deal that could see the end of the 38-year-old’s career, but allow him to receive a good chunk of his monster contract is contingent on if A-Rod doesn’t fight a suspension.

A-Rod must be quiet

Alex Rodriguez continues to dig himself into a deeper hole every time he opens his mouth. He has wondered why his relationship with Derek Jeter isn’t as tight as he always hoped it would be.

Pout All You Like Perhaps the only thing that both the PED haters and the fans of the individual players, affected teams or just those who want the world to move on from all of this can agree on is this... the waiting for MLB's inevitable strike against the Biogensis suspects is, well, ridiculous and off-putting. Some teams, like the Tigers with Jhonny Peralta, the A's with...

The Great Fall of A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez once had the smoothest road to Cooperstown paved for him.  He was meant to be the elite poster boy for this generation of the game.  Well Major League Baseball is making sure he’s the poster boy of something for this generation, it just happens to be steroids.

Why A Short-Term A-Rod Ban Helps Red Sox

As tempting as it is to contemplate a lifetime ban for Alex Rodriguez, that eventuality is not really in the best interest of the Boston Red Sox. Why? Because a lifetime ban would likely allow The Bronx Embalmers to recoup the roughly $60 million that would be left on The Fraudulent One's contract.
