A-Rod on suspension appeal: “Let’s get it on”

HOUSTON — Alex Rodriguez said that he is “excited” to begin his appeal of the 211-game performance-enhancing drug suspension levied in August by Major League Baseball.

Rodriguez said that he to be present for each day of the proceedings at MLB’s offices in New York, and expects the appeal process to take five days.

“This has been a burden; a big burden. Let’s get it on,” Rodriguez said. “It starts on Monday. Better to face it head on.”

Rodriguez is not expected to play this weekend against the Astros. He will complete the season batting .244 with seven home runs and 19 RBIs in 44 games, and now can turn his attention to his battle with MLB.

“I’ll be there every day,” Rodriguez said. “I’m fighting for my life and my whole legacy. I should be there. I hope everyone’s there.”

Andy Petitte has this unbelievable last appearance to a fabulous career and we get remnded once again of what a dirtbag AROD is. This was clearly Andy’s day and the idea that Arod should share the spotlight shows how dopey all of you guys are. This bum does not deserve this kind of coverage. It’s not news. It’s stale. A wonderful distraction for the front office to use so that fans won’t be reminded of what a travesty the Steinbrenners and Cashman have become.Bronx Bummers !!

Who cares what that No talent thinks about anything anyway? If i was him and was being paid to take this team to the world series, i’d go crawl under a rock somewhere and stay there.
