Now we know why the Yankees won't meet with A-Rod: They're planning to weasel out of the contract they signed

It's no fun, being the last frozen outpost in the solar system to defend Alex Rodriguez. It's downright depressing, like missing the playoffs. But MLB (the true Evil Empire) and the Yankees (who own the name Evil Empire) are still moving in their quest to blame the entire steroid era on A-Rod... pretending that, 1) Nobody else did it - (Talking to you, Redsocks,) and 2) The owners...

Alex Rodriguez stubbornly ignores Yankees

Either you have to admire New York Yankees circus ringmaster Alex Rodriguez – or wonder if he’s insane. Rodriguez has more or less been told by the team that he’s got no shot of playing third base, yet he trots out onto his old high school field in Miami and takes grounders. He wants everyone to see how much he wants it. Then he posts a photo to his Instagram account for all...
