09:40 AM ET 01.19 | Make no mistake, MLB is not done with Alex Rodriguez yet. While he's mentally and physically resting, he can expect frequent visits from the MLB drug-sample collectors. And, just in case he still hasn't read the Joint Drug Agreement provisions, if he should fail a drug test, that'll be grounds for permanent expulsion from the game. When Selig last summer threatened to take matters into his own hands and suspend A-Rod for life for conduct detrimental to baseball, he believed he had sufficient evidence to do so. But his advisers talked him out of it for fear it would rile up the Players' Association and upset the delicate spirit of cooperation between MLB and the union on the drug issue. But that was before A-Rod decided to sue the union, too. What kind of support do you think he can expect from the union now on any grievance issue?

Yup, but he will be the starting 3rd baseman for the Spankees on opening day. I can't wait to read the press releases from Selig and the Steinbrenner boys when a real judge in a real courtroom tosses his suspension out the window.

I love watching the Yankees in disarray.

For the $27 mil in savings, Hal and Cash are more than happy to deal with it

You've mentioned that several times.

Care to make a wager on that?

27M is a drop in the bucket to the Yankees. And it's actually 22M. Plus they still need to find a 3B.

They have needed a legit 3rd baseman for years now.

Are you an attorney?
You keep saying this, but without any explanation of the legal basis that will vacate the BINDING arbitration finding.
So, explain yourself, please, or--just keep saying it with no explanation, and sound like a know-nothing!

Zero chance A-rod wants to or will go to a trial.
The absolute last thing A-Rod wants is to be questioned under oath.

What if he employs the "It happened so long ago, what difference does it make now?" defense like Hillbillery Clinton?
