A-Rod Takes Page from Clinton Playbook
Liberals just don’t like rules.
Check it out:
Alex Rodriguez. Alex Rodriguez has decided to take a page out of the Clinton playbook to treat Bud Selig and the New York Yankees as Ken Starr. What Rodriguez is going to say is, “Why me? Why’d these other guys get suspended for 50 games and you’re giving me 211? Why are you singling me out? Why didn’t you offer me 50? How come you’re taking away all this money from me?”
He’s gonna say that they’ve gotta vendetta against him. He’s gonna say that they don’t like him. He’s gonna say that they got big problems with him, and then he’s gonna say… He hasn’t denied any of this. He was asked point-blank yesterday at the press conference whether he took any of these performance enhancing drugs. He did say, “Well, I’m not gonna talk about it. It’s not the place for this. I’m just so excited to be back in uniform, so excited to be back in the game I love,” and he really thought answers were really confusing.
But what he’s gonna do is make that case. He’s got ’til Thursday to decide whether he’s gonna fight this or take it. If he fights it, it goes to arbitration, and he continues to play, and the arbitrator says, “Well, we won’t have a decision on this ’til November or December.” So it’s gonna drag on, and Rodriguez is, as I said yesterday, gonna say that the commissioner is singling him out, gonna vendetta.
