12:40 PM ET 07.22 | Whether it is convenient timing for Alex Rodriguez or simply revealing of the state of his body, the quadriceps strain that showed up on an MRI on Sunday is more reason than ever to believe that A-Rod will never play for the Yankees again. For even if his intention truly had been to suit up as soon as Monday in Texas, a notion that clashes with information the Daily News has been reporting for weeks, A-Rod is now running out of time. The Biogenesis-related suspensions are coming shortly, there doesn't seem to be much doubt about that. And if you saw the quotes in the Daily News on Wednesday from Players Association chief Michael Weiner, saying the union wouldn't necessarily appeal if the case against a player were strong enough, you could certainly read between the lines as they applied to A-Rod. Indeed, sources say MLB does have such a case against A-Rod, as he learned 10 days ago when he met with the league's investigators in Florida.

Maybe the Yanks or the MLB FO drew in that tear on the MRI when no one was looking....

Are we sure Dr. Andrews wasn't involved with reading A-Rod's MRI????????

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition............

But he'll only do it in the past and it will be his cousin's fault.

Arid got he's well deserved money, thanks to the Yankees generosity :-) :-)

July 22, 2013  02:22 PM ET

And jeter injuries aren't helping the Yankees wrecked lineup :-) :-)

New York media and Yankees can pout all they want and try to come up ways to not pay him. But he will get his money. No way the union will sit by and allow the remaining money to go back to the yankees.

Really, I hope that the Yankees have to pay every cent of that contract. They should have never have signed a player that was cashing in for one last time after a good season, thinking there was even a slight chance that he would play good enough to make it worth the armored trucks full of cash. Add in the fact that baseball tightening their drug policies, that he wouldn't be able to recover from injuries with the aid of HGH or steroids. They got hosed, but that's what happens when you offer ridiculous contracts to fraudulent players who shriveled when it matters most. They gave him another contract, they should pay him the contract. Really, no player over thirty, in this day and age, should receive an offer over five years, because 9 times out of 10, at least, it will be a bust.

I wonder if Bartolo will be able to cash in again before it hits the fan for him again?

Arod disgusts everyone not named Arod. but he is far far far from being alone. Not even close. Check a roster near you.

He created his own demise!!!

Guess we'll hear all those named as they get suspended.

The Yankees just need to negotiate a buy out to make him go away. He has to want some peace instead of dealing with this for 4 more years. He has all the money he's ever going to need.

Never under estimate greed. I'm sure, in some twisted, demented way, Alex believe he has a right to that money, regardless of the fact that he was and is, a cheater. Just like the Brewers will be paying a player that will be a shell of his former cheating self, til 2021.

I just read an interesting article. An unnamed investigator was saying a lifetime ban is allowed if they can prove enough separate violations. Is that why this is taking so long? Are they going for a lifetime ban with this blight on the sport?
