A-Rod Keeps Beating Up On Bud
He didn't get the chance to hear the explanation for why he was suspended for 211 games last week, but that hasn't stopped Alex Rodriguez from throwing body blows at Bud Selig. Now that his suspension appeal hearing is over, A-Rod is using his lawsuit against MLB to air his grievances with the MLB commissioner. His lawyers amended the lawsuit yesterday to include complaints about Bud no-showing at the hearings. Here's the best part:
“Mr. Selig chose to hide in his office in Milwaukee rather than come testify at the grievance hearing in New York. In Mr. Selig’s world, apparently the ‘buck’ does not stop with Bud. Mr. Selig lacked the courage of his convictions to explain under oath the reasons for the suspension and the conduct of his investigators. His silence on these issues speaks volumes and leads to only one logical conclusion — his actions, and those of the MLB personnel he controls, were aimed at destroying the reputation, career and business prospects of Alex Rodriguez.”
The amended lawsuit also included pictures designed to show evidence of Bud's alleged hatred for A-Rod, like the one above. I've said it before and I'll continue to say it until every man, woman, and child on this planet acknowledges it. No matter how you feel about A-Rod as a player or person, the comedic value of this whole situation cannot be understated.
