Let's get more on the latest developments in the scandal from Peter Schrager columnist.
Yeah I -- I see a scene like we've never seen I think in baseball history tonight in Chicago because from all -- -- -- in the field and the Yankees are gonna put him in the lineup so.
You have this going on around him -- yet Alex Rodriguez will be playing baseball for the next couple days as he appeals this.
And like Adam said this could take 1520 days -- -- on the whole thing go through.
Very interesting scenario.
Ever wanted to go -- but aired a 34 million dollars or 34 million reasons for it to not going to fight this to the veterans the argument part of the argument is that a ride not only went to this clinic and used its services over many years but also.
Forced others to go there yeah I mean you look at all these guys and 33%.
Of the dirty dozen that there colonists were New York athletes now is that -- connection -- -- not sure Medina Mets or yankees seem like it had a New York -- to this.
Is very connected with this Tony -- situation so.
We'll see what happens in the point you made there with Bud Selig expressed -- that looks like -- trying to cover this up as well it's not just hey you caught me was that he was trying to go on his way to obstruct this.
-- very interesting and we've seen this before Roger Clemens Barry Bonds now the consent to this extent where it's an actual cover up he's actually being suspended for two seasons.
He's -- -- fight this and there.
The way to major league of Major League work is that Major League Baseball has contract with -- union.
The -- very powerful and as part of this contract Bud Selig could if he chose to do so -- -- good of the game clause in other words say.
We're not gonna let him play because it to the detriment of the game of baseball he didn't enact that now he did -- unions.
And that's just a strip and flip of the ML BP and this is the baseball union at its best where they're saying we -- -- the wanna find that because of that strong of a union.
And Selig has that clause in the CBA it's worth the best interest of the game had not had Iran involved.
I don't think we're gonna see that -- now the other question is.
Why the Yankees playing him well because it rides camp they suggest that they make you don't want to pay him to 34 million dollars that is left either so.
They're not going to be the ones that say hey look he's healthy we're happening in the lineup they don't want -- fight that either so it looks like we're gonna see Alex Rodriguez.
On the field tonight which is going to be fascinating.
Everybody knows how powerful the Yankees organization is -- -- powerful Bud Selig is.
My anyone who knows baseball knows that that the players union and and the -- you're getting a lot.
If they've ever gotten along better I don't know what analysts and this is why it's so amazing and you have these twelve players.
Nelson Cruz a baseball star he leads the Rangers and there's a visa to stay suppliers -- statements are issued on Nelson Cruz won from the Rangers and one from.
Went from cruise himself and they're both very conciliatory going.
And Ryan Braun in the defending him OK I mean he's a huge names and for him -- and still not being good they were this close baseball is so close to having this.
Almost washed away from Selig legacy could.
-- it's -- send -- -- penny Barry Bonds Mark McGuire Roger Clemens now -- and say -- well Bud -- steroid there he almost washed his name at this hey look.
We got all these big name players they all agreed -- finding we're getting up.
Iran will not let them win and -- -- -- interesting -- for -- this is about money nothing else right you could say it's about legacy it's about.
Legacy that this guy I think what -- wanna while the variety of fifth all time home -- -- got to finish up strong in his career he's not gonna have many years that activists so.
It is about money though and there's a lot of money to lose a lot of money to -- Wrigley tonight.
Wrigley Field has been the scene of incredible delicious -- Over the years right I -- -- -- you know one thing about yankees fans they're everywhere especially in Chicago.
My guess is every yankees fan and every cubbies -- tonight.
-- the hell out of -- Alex Rodriguez it.
It's going to be an amazing scene I think so I think this game is being played -- Yankee Stadium may be getting themselves.
I think in -- the Red Sox are coming to Yankee Stadium easily and it would just amazing for drama does that -- -- -- gave villainous guy.
That he could take the field put on the blinders and do -- Iran does.
Is there anything that could change this scenario is there something good could a -- is possible now that A-Rod will go okay never mind that if you.
I think that violence -- their -- and he's the one on one out there and like SS 34 million real good I'm speaking over the weekend that's changed.
Why do you bureaucracy and why the dressings in Trenton it's not likely that the Yankees think it was an interesting thing and he came out and there was some anti -- comments inside baseball comments.
You thought very interesting situation and -- we'll see how I don't play here and be good for ratings tonight real baseball could use this I'm in Red Sox fans trying to get tickets right now again.
