A-Rod's Lawyers Amend Complaint To Further Criticize Selig
Alex Rodriguez' lawyers have amended their lawsuit against MLB and Bud Selig to include the fact that the Commissioner "did not have to testify and give a justification" for the Yankees 3B's "unprecedented 211-game drug suspension at the recently concluded arbitration hearing." The amended suit also includes a picture of Selig with a young fan wearing a T-shirt that reads, "A-Roid."
The complaint now reads, "Mr. Selig lacked the courage of his convictions to explain under oath the reasons for the suspension and the conduct of the investigation. ... Sadly, this cowardly stance by Mr. Selig is consistent with his past and highly inappropriate conduct in posing, smilingly, with a young fan wearing a T-shirt with a derogatory message directed at Mr. Rodriguez" (ESPNNY.com, 11/26).
