This is going to be good. Alex Rodriguez and his legal team filed a lawsuit against MLB on Thursday night for a “witch hunt” and conspiring to keep him out of the game. They also allege the league paid $5M for former Biogenesis head Anthony Bosch’s cooperation. The lawsuit, complete with a section called “The Disastrous Tenure of Bud Selig,” can be seen here.
If you don’t want to sift through the suit for the gory details, Steve Eder has a breakdown. Selig is listed as a defendant but the Yankees and team officials are not. I suspect a separate lawsuit for the team is on the way. The appeal of A-Rod’s record 211-game suspension started this week and I don’t think the timing of the lawsuit is a coincidence. Resident RAB legal expert Ben Kabak will have more later today.
