Decision Reached on A-Rod Suspension
Originally the league had announced of suspending Alex Rodriguez for 211 games for his involvement in Major League Baseball’s Biogenesis scandal. A-Rod didn’t feel the suspension was a fair decision. Now the arbitrator Fredric Horowitz has decided that a suspension of 162 games is more fair for this incident. Still the third baseman feels like this amount of suspension is out of the norm when compared to the other 12 players who was involved in the scandal and only received no more than 65 games suspension. A-Rod is set to appeal the decision due to “inconsistency” in the punishment and “false and wholly unreliable testimony.” Here’s what the statement said released by his spokesperson:
It should be noted that A-Rod continues to profess his innocence in this matter:
A-Rod went a step further and talks about how he can’t wait to get back on the field. He also thanks a number of people such as his family, friends, fans and many of his fellow MLB players for support. It’s interesting how he doesn’t mention his teammates or the Yankee organization. But he will “continue to work hard to get back on the field and help the Yankees achieve the ultimate goal of winning another championship.” Lets see how this plays out.
