09:00 AM ET 08.07 | It looks like A-Rod will be safe at third. Major League Baseball officials will not suspend injured Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez over illegal poker allegations, The Post has learned. "Even if it is determined that he was [playing illegal poker], he will not be suspended at this time for this infraction," a source said. "He will be warned again and not lightly."

Why not penalize him; is he teflon?

I wonder how many warnings he'll get in his career?????

I was under the impression that everyone got one warning and then more serious action was taken - why is he different?

There ya go. That is about right. Not sure they are any better of a team with him. The record says he is not missed much.

the brooklyns mad the one tally in their first inning and from one tremendous drive, a homerun by hi myers, the dodgers never girdled the diamond again. they went at babe ruth, the big boston left-hander, the hardest they knew, but never in the succeding 13 innings could they rend his effective pitching for a full excursion"

ruth even knocked home boston's first run in the 2-1 win, though it wasn't exatly in typical ruthian fassion- this one scored when he grounded out at second base in the third inning. the result helped the red sox win the series, 4-1.
