Via Larry Neumeister: MLB’s lawyers have sent a former letter to U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield requesting that the lawsuit filed by Alex Rodriguez‘s legal team be thrown out. A-Rod‘s camp filed the suit claiming the league is conducting a “witch hunt” to get him out of baseball. Apparently there is a Labor Management Relations Act issue depending on whether the case is heard in state or federal court. I’m not exactly sure what’s better for whom. Proceedings for the suit are scheduled to begin in early-November. Remember, this is completely different matter than A-Rod’s appeal of his 211-game suspension.
