The Victory Formation:
Up until yesterday, nobody has been willing to come to bat for Alex Rodriguez while Major League Baseball investigated his involvement with the Biogenesis scandal and why would they? A-Rod is toxic, and whoever associates themselves with him is asking for trouble, especially with punishment expected to be handed down to him and others linked to the Miami-based clinic by the end of the week. Enter former poster boy for PEDs, Roger Clemens. Clemens spoke with the AP as he was on hand to celebrate the 1988 team in Boston that won the AL East and shared these warm and fuzzy thoughts about A-Rod, who he teamed with for one half season back in 2007. “A-Rod was my teammate in New York,” the poster boy for the Mitchell Report on baseball and steroids told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “I’m glad he was my teammate. Here is the one that should give you a tickle. “I did things to make him feel comfortable. I did that for all of my teammates. I think I was a pretty solid teammate.” Made him feel comfortable, huh? That makes sense. As Clemens defended himself shortly thereafter on Capitol Hill, A-Rod was about to [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
Major League Baseball is waiting on Alex Rodriguez and his lawyer to know if they will accept a deal that will suspend the Yankee star player for the rest of the 2013 season, and all of 2014, according to the New York Daily News.

Alex Rodriguez‘s career may be nearing its end.
Major League Baseball is preparing to suspend Rodriguez for life for his role in the Biogenesis scandal, two sources told USA Today on Wednesday.
The punishment will reportedly be handed down either Thursday or Friday along with announcements of 50-game suspensions for eight other players, including Detroit’s Jhonny Peralta and...
Whether you believe the conspiracy theories or not, Alex Rodriguez is still going through the normal rehab protocols a player with a quadriceps injury would. He is taking grounders at the team's spring training complex, and he is hitting in the batting cages. Soon, he could start playing games again.
Adam Berry of MLB.com says Rodriguez should be ready for a simulated...
Major League Baseball has been playing hardball with Alex Rodriguez since they began investigating his alleged involvement with Biogenesis, and it is slowly starting to look like the league will get its way. Rodriguez’s lawyers have been adamant throughout the entire process that A-Rod will appeal any suspension he is given, but could they be [...]
Alex Rodriguez says he's fighting for his life.
The embattled New York Yankees' slugger did not deny using performance enhancing drugs on Monday in a news conference after Major League Baseball suspended him through the 2014 season. He said he will talk about whether he used PEDs at another time when he is more free to speak.
He did, however, dig in for a battle, saying...
Roger Clemens, who once said Mike Piazza would have to get in line with his (Roger's) teammates if he wanted to hit him, is now telling folks he was a great team guy:
Roger Clemens was at Fenway Park Tuesday night to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Red Sox team that won the AL East in 1988, and while speaking with the media, he discussed his former teammate Rodriguez....
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.
When you think back to the 19 years we’ve had of Alex Rodriguez it’s really just disappointing to...
If this isn’t protecting “the integrity of, or the maintenance of public confidence in, the game of baseball,” not much would be.
MLB commissioner Bud Selig is moving to use a remote clause in the MLB collective bargaining agreement that includes that phrasing to try to keep Alex Rodriguez from returning to baseball, the New York Daily News reports.
Rodriguez, who is working...
Major League Baseball officials seeking to put the Biogenesis scandal behind them have offered 50-game suspensions to eight of the nine players facing discipline this week while continuing efforts to hammer out a deal with Alex Rodriguez that would prevent the steroid-stained slugger from ever returning to the field sources told the Daily News.
Officials from MLB union leaders and...
If Major League Baseball were to ban Alex Rodriguez for life because of performance-enhancing drugs the New York Yankees would get off the hook for nearly $100 million in future salary.
The Rangers would not be so lucky.
The issues in the Biogenesis case are two-fold: 1) the accused players supposedly used PEDs, which is against the rules of MLB’s drug policy, and 2) they used illegal drugs, thereby breaking the real law.
It is there that gives Commissioner Bud Selig authority to go after these guys and dole out punishments, some exceeding the 50-game ban for a first offense.
RODRIGUEZ: Not doing...
Major League Baseball is expected to announce the Biogenesis
suspensions of nine players on Friday, but Alex Rodriguez's fate
remains up in the air, according to a report in the New York Post.
Major League Baseball officials told union leaders during a meeting at the Players Association’s midtown Manhattan offices on Tuesday that they plan to suspend Alex Rodriguez and eight other players who allegedly obtained performance-enhancing drugs from a South Florida anti-aging clinic.
Most of the players will be suspended for 50 games but some – including the Yankees’...
It's been practically a month now since MLB's clown court forced Dr. Anthony Biogenesis Quackington to "testify" in its famous War on Drugs, by suing him for every last bottle deposit in his checking account. Thus, the "doctor" gave them exactly what they wanted: Names. Ever since, a steady stream of selective leaks have formed a mighty river of...
