Musings on an A-Rod suspensionBy
In the post-game wrap-up today, Peter Abraham has an interesting quote from Joe Girardi. The Yankee skipper, it seems, is worried that A-Rod may still be suspended. “I think you have to be a little bit concerned any time you go in front of Major League Baseball,” Girardi said. “The precedent has been set with how they’ve dealt with players but there’s still always a concern. I’m hoping it’s a fact-finding mission and that he’s set to go on April 6.”
Major League Baseball has never suspended anyone for past PED use, and the Players Association would throw a fit, legitimately, of epic proportions if they did so. The Yanks have every right to be worried about a suspension, but one will not come down for A-Rod on Sunday. I’d bet money on that.
