Alex Rodriguez's lawsuit, filed in an attempt to get his job back as third-baseman for the New York Yankees, is being labeled a joke today. MLB is calling Alex's assertions a desperate move to divert attention from the fact that he violated league rules by using steroids, according to Radar Online on Friday, Oct. 4. Meanwhile, Rodriguez fired back saying the league is holding him out as an example.
Alex Rodriguez filed suit recently in a New York court, alleging he's being used as a scapegoat for what the league has quietly acknowledged was part and parcel to the game of baseball through the years.
MLB responded by alleging Rodriguez is simply trying to circumvent the collective bargaining agreement. They say tests show he used numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing drugs, including Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone.
Alex says it was okay for Bud Selig, and Major League Baseball, when balls were sailing out of ballparks, and the stands were packed. But, now he say's he's being held up as the poster child for bad behavior.
Rodriguez was issued a 211-game suspension this summer for his supposed use of steroids.
