07:25 AM ET 11.21 | Alex Rodriguez had quite a day Wednesday, going off theatrically in an arbitration meeting, then taking to a New York radio station hosted by Mike Francesa. Wearing a dark gray suit and polka-dot tie on the YES simulcast, Rodriguez described himself as persecuted by Major League Baseball. ... "Today I lost my mind," Rodriguez said. "I banged a table, kicked a briefcase and slammed out of the room." He went on to attack the 79-year-old [Bud Selig], who lives in Milwaukee and whose office is there. "I know you don't like New York, but you've got to come face me," Rodriguez said of the commissioner. "This is my legacy. I'm part of history. You tell me why I should serve one inning. 'Cause you're retiring next year? That's not fair, Mike." ... "This has been a disgusting process for everyone," said Rodriguez.
