As federal officials continue their investigation into Anthony Galea, a Canadian doctor suspected to furnishing PEDs to American baseball players, Alex Rodriguez will meet with the feds on Friday in Buffalo to talk about his connection to the doctor, according to Michael S. Schmidt of The Times. A-Rod and his lawyers will journey to upstate New York to cooperate in the investigation, and it is anticipated the feds will question the Yanks’ third baseman as to whether or not Galea has been sending various drugs into the States. Both Major League Baseball and the Yankees will be awaiting detail of A-Rod’s questioning.

For the Yankees, this story has put them into an awkward position with A-Rod. The slugger told the team this winter that he had no dealings with Galea, but stories this spring have cast that assertion into doubt. For numerous reasons, I hope nothing comes of this investigation except this questioning, but as is often the case with Alex Rodriguez, I’m not holding my breath.

          Only one thing can save us now:

          Joe Mauer. Please, Joe, we need your small-town, all-white, good clean white American selfless can-do spirit and whiteness now more than ever.

            Couldn’t get a “hometown discount taking” in there?

              FACT: The Yankees had a 20-year, 800M deal on the table for Mauer, but he turned them down and agreed to play for the Twins for $1039.56 per year, which is the cost of his uniform, uniform laundering, tackle-twill numbering, bats, gloves, pads, and mask.

              Because all he cares about is winning, baseball, and Dustin Pedroia, who also cares only about winning and baseball.

    The feds sure play a lot of games when they question ball players.It’s surprising they didn’t wait until opening day.What a shame.
