The meditation was meant to settle any legal claims Rodriguez may have with WMG or his former agents over being traded from the Mets to the Brewers last summer. Rodriguez alleges that the Brewers were one of 10 teams that were on a no-trade list, which was never filed by Kinzer. In addition to the mediation, Wasserman has asked Rodriguez for unpaid fees in a confidential arbitration that is being overseen by the MLBPA. The lawsuit alleges Rodriguez was current with his fee payments at the time he fired WMG and up until he served notice on them for legal and sports malpractice on Sept. 30, 2011. The lawsuit also alleges that Rodriguez did not know that WMG had not filed the no-trade list "until he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers in mid-July of 2011."
