Red Sox Yankees Baseball

Oh man, it’s getting crazy.  We already heard that it’s possible that Alex Rodriguez could get a lifetime ban from MLB and now this.  A-Rod’s representatives say that he believes the Yankees & MLB are conspiring to keep him off the field.  He got his own personal doctor that says A-Rod doesn’t have a quad injury. Yikes.

Facing the threat of a possible lifetime ban from Major League Baseball for alleged use of performance enhancing drugs, Alex Rodriguez has decided to take his private battle with the New York Yankees public.

In a media blitz, Rodriguez’s representatives, including a doctor who disputed the Yankees’ interpretation of an MRI showing Rodriguez had a quad strain, began supplying details to support A-Rod’s belief that the Yankees and MLB were conspiring to keep the $275 million third baseman off the baseball field.

Dr. Michael Gross, an orthopedic surgeon with the Hackensack Medical Center, spoke with ESPN New York and other media outlets to assert that his reading of the MRI showed no damage to Rodriguez’s quad that should keep him off the field, and a source with ties to Rodriguez called several media outlets to reveal that Rodriguez had informed the Yankees he is ready to play and wants to be in the lineup Friday night when the team opens a three-game series at home against the Tampa Bay Rays.

“He feels he has no choice,” the source told “He wants to play and they won’t let him play. Nobody knows Alex’s body better than he does.”
