Yep, the never ending Alex Rodriguez saga continues–except this time it seems that it’s the New York media that’s stirring the pot.
The New York Daily News published an article this morning stating a source said Rodriguez told the panel that Boesch had duped him into taking illegal substances, however Rodriguez’s legal team disputed the sources claims, citing the sources comments were false. Here is a statement from A-Rod’s publicist Ron Berkowitz:
“We cannot provide any details of this hearing as the Chair of the Arbitration Panel has issued an order prohibiting all parties from commenting publicly on the confidential proceedings, but what is being reported is NOT true.”
So basically, this has turned into an entire ‘he said – he said’ situation and I have a slight feeling that this only going to get uglier as time goes on. Rodriguez’s hearing before arbitrator Fred Horowitz is to end later this week and if both parties cannot come up with an agreement, Horowitz will make a ruling in A-Rod’s case later this winter.
