Alex Rodriguez is Suing Major League Baseball

New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball on Thursday for “buying the cooperation” with Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch according to the New York Times. A-Rod’s connection with the South Florida anti-aging clinic netted him a 211-game suspension in August. His grievance hearing for the suspension has been ongoing this week in New York.

From the Times:

In the complaint, Rodriguez’s lawyers claim an investigator paid $150,000 in cash for records related to Rodriguez, which were apparently stolen. A portion of the cash “was handed off in a bag at a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., area restaurant,” the lawsuit says.

The lawsuit specifically accuses Major League Baseball of engaging in “tortious interference,” essentially interfering with Rodriguez’s existing contracts and future business relationships.

Never a dull moment with A-Rod.
