08:35 AM ET 08.10 | Alex Rodriguez could not be more serious about his war with Major League Baseball. The Yankees third baseman has enlisted the help of the same private-investigation firm Dominique Strass-Kahn did to successfully contest a 2011 rape allegation, according to New York Magazine. Earlier this summer, Rodriguez hired Guidepost Solutions, a New York firm run by former federal prosecutor Bart Schwartz, a source told the publication, and the sleuths there have been working closely with A-Rod's lawyers in recent weeks.

You have got to be kidding me.

This becomes more silly by the day.

Why not? Don't show up to a gun fight with a knife. Don't care what they do with him, but I believe nothing that comes from Selig's mouth either. Put them both on a deserted island. fine by me.

Has any reporter cornered Selig and asked him how it is none of these players have failed a MLB administered test? No one has since last August?

It wouldn't hurt for him to go after Jack Clark as well

Anybody who thinks Selig plays by any rules should just go google what Mark Cuban has to say about his dealings with him when he tried to buy the Cubs and the Houston team. Too bad for cubs fans, he would have made them relevant in a hurry.

Not going to end pretty for Mr. Rodriguez.

Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a while for this end at all. In the meantime, I hope A-Rod's legal team burns through his money by the truck-load.

Any press is better than no press.

Maybe the private investigators will follow MLB around and photograph them performing unnatural acts for the major televisions networks?
