New York, NY, Monday, January 13, 2014 … Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director, Tony Clark, today issued the following statement regarding the lawsuit filed by Alex Rodriguez against the MLBPA.

“It is unfortunate that Alex Rodriguez has chosen to sue the Players Association. His claim is completely without merit, and we will aggressively defend ourselves and our members from these baseless charges.

“The Players Association has vigorously defended Mr. Rodriguez’s rights throughout the Biogenesis investigation, and indeed throughout his career. Mr. Rodriguez’s allegation that the Association has failed to fairly represent him is outrageous, and his gratuitous attacks on our former Executive Director, Michael Weiner, are inexcusable. When all is said and done, I am confident the Players Association will prevail.”

    A fatal mistake to A-Rod. The Players Association was about the only thing close to a friend he had left in baseball, but now he has burned that bridge, too. It goes to prove that even though he is a talented man in baseball, he’s neither very smart nor well-educated, and is probably getting some bad advice as well.

    Thanks for airing this and the MLBPA statement about the 60 minutes segment. Pretty much they speak for themselves.
