It’s only fitting on Halloween that Alex Rodriguez makes a statement that includes the words ‘house of horror’. Here’s A-Rod’s statement:
“I am deeply troubled by my team’s investigative findings with respect to MLB’s conduct,” Rodriguez said in a statement released through his spokesman. “How can the gross, ongoing misconduct of the MLB investigations division not be relevant to my suspension, when my suspension supposedly results directly from that division’s work?
“It is sad that Commissioner Selig once again is turning a blind eye, knowing that crimes are being committed under his regime. I have 100% faith in my legal team. To be sure, this fight is necessary to protect me, but it also serves the interests of the next 18-year-old coming into the league, to be sure he doesn’t step into the house of horrors that I am being forced to walk through.”
Can anyone say that this was a confusing moment to issue a statement? It’s Halloween, the day after the season ended. Well, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York, A-Rod’s camp released the statement because Bud Selig said during the World Series that he stands by his investigated team and investigation of the Biogensis Scandal.
This isn’t the first time Rodriguez has made headlines during a Boston Red Sox postseason. As we can recall in 2007, A-Rod opted out of his Yankees contract, only to sign a ten year extension. Do you think the Yankees wish they had a time machine now?
Rodriguez continues to believe Major League Baseball is out to get him and that the evidence is tainted. We heard this story a million times. But thanks for the “house of horror’ statement A-Rod. That should hold Yankees fans over until the arbitrator releases the final statement in your case.
