Fox Sports: A-Rod suspension reduced to 162 games; Will take fight to court Rodriquez threatened to take his fight to federal court, claiiming "the deck has been stacked against me from day one" and "his is one man's decision, that was not put before a fair and impartial jury, does not involve me having failed a single drug test" and claims the facts don't support his guilt or suspension. The man is a liar, just like Roger Clemens. His ego won't let him accept the fact that, if he takes this to court, he will lose, and probably be out of baseball. T.J. Quinn of ESPN wrote last summer that “MLB confronted Braun with volumes of evidence provided by Tony Bosch, including texts.” What evidence MLB has against Rodriguez isn’t exactly clear, but there was enough there to prevent Braun in his efforts to make a deal. It also hurt the possibility of a successful appeal, as Braun’s actions gave Bosch credibility, which is something that has been in question since the BioGenesis investigation began. For what it’s worth, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported last summer that MLB received “receipts, checks, the whole nine yards” during their investigation, which would certainly sink Rodriguez. Fine with me. His hubris throughout this whole thing has been disgusting.
