New York Yankee’s third baseman Alex Rodriguez has been suspended for 162 games, which means he will not play any games for the 2014 season. This decision was handed down by Fredrick Harbowitz and this could include any play off games. All of this stemming from the Biogenesis scandal.
This means he will lose $25 Million dollars in salary, but Alex plans to fight this decision in federal court. A-Rod plans on attending spring training, a source close to Rodriguez tells ESPNNew York.com’s Andrew Marchand. Under a loophole in his suspension, he is allowed to participate in spring training. While the decision is a reduction of the punishment baseball sought, it still could mean the end of Rodriguez’s playing career.
He will turn 39 in July and, coming off two hip surgeries and a 2013 season in which he played just 44 games, may not be able to return after sitting out an entire season.
I can see AFraud throwing a lot of folks under the bus if he doesn’t get what he wants especially if this could mean the end of his career.
