Skewed Left: The Historical Precedent for an A-Rod Comeback

5

Zachary Levine

Could Alex Rodriguez return and produce in 2015?

The first A-Rod, well before the fat A-Rod that we know today, might have looked like this guy.

His name is Candy Nelson, and more than 120 years ago, he did what Alex Rodriguez is facing the prospect of having to accomplish when his 162-game suspension ends. Rodriguez will be four months short of his 40th birthday when he comes back to play, presuming both that no federal court intervention changes the decree and that he does desire to return.

Analyzing A-Rod's Arbitration Case

30

Eugene Freedman

What did we learn from the release of Alex Rodriguez's previously confidential arbitration award?

On Monday, January 13, Alex Rodriguez filed suit against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball, and the Major League Baseball Players Association. After a short oral argument in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, Judge William H. Pauley III ordered that A-Rod’s attorneys were required to submit an unredacted and complete version of the previously confidential arbitration award with their filing.

What Will Happen if Alex Rodriguez Appeals?

34

Eugene Freedman

If A-Rod isn't happy with the outcome of his arbitration case, will he have any recourse?

Alex Rodriguez’s attorneys have, at various times, suggested that he will challenge the outcome of his Biogenesis suspension-related grievance arbitration should he not be satisfied with the result—and that only a result of no suspension will be acceptable. (Update: Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz reduced Rodriguez's sentence, but only to 162 games. A-Rod does plan to appeal to federal court.) In a column in November, I wrote, “Courts grant great deference to labor arbitration and arbitrators under what’s referred to as the Steelworkers Trilogy, a series of cases issued by the Supreme Court in 1960.” That is true whether the case involves teamsters in Detroit or Chicago or baseball players in San Diego or New York.

Ben and Sam discuss the latest details of the exquisitely seamy A-Rod story.

Analyzing A-Rod's Arbitration Case

13

Eugene Freedman

Going public won't help Alex Rodriguez win his case.

On Wednesday, Alex Rodriguez reportedly stormed out of his disciplinary hearing and made various pronouncements to the media, most notably during an interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN and the YES Network. Under normal circumstances, we could see this as his true emotional response to the negative ruling he’d just received (that Commissioner Selig would not be required to testify in the case). But because everything we’ve seen thus far from A-Rod and his team has been so orchestrated, I can interpret this only as a well-rehearsed and well-scheduled event like all of the rest.

The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.

What's the most likely outcome of A-Rod's appeal?

Week one of Alex Rodriguez’s disciplinary hearing has come and gone, with another week likely still remaining to be scheduled around the arbitrator’s other commitments at some point in the near future.

Pebble Hunting: Casting the Most Unconventional MVP Vote

14

Sam Miller

Creative arguments in favor of several players whom the courageous writer can support.

If you’re one of the 60 writers who get to vote on the MVP award this year, then by all means, take it seriously and vote in good faith for the player you think was most valuable. If you’re one of the hundreds of writers who don’t: Man, I feel for you. This all over again.
