But This What a Way Has Been a Way of Today

According to a report by Michael Schmidt in the New York Times:

Alex Rodriguez told investigators and lawyers for Major League Baseball on Thursday that he was treated by a Canadian-based doctor now under investigation by federal authorities but that he did not receive performance-enhancing drugs from him, according to two people in baseball with knowledge of the meeting.

In meeting with the Yankees’ Rodriguez for a three-hour interview Thursday night in Florida, baseball officials ended up beating the federal authorities to the punch. The authorities have sought to interview Rodriguez for weeks but have not yet done so. Baseball officials and the federal authorities want to know what interactions Rodriguez had with the doctor, Anthony Galea, who has stated that he treated him in 2009 with anti-inflammatories after Rodriguez’s hip surgery.

Evilicious is hoping the Bombers can win a few games this April. Has anyone seen our schedule? At the Sox, at the Rays and then the Angels?! SHEESH. It's just not fair. But I suppose when you around .500 in May it's better to do that against good teams than it is against the Royals and Indians.

I am so psyched for tomorrow's game. CC v. Redneckett.

Having a problem with this whole thing. If the reason the feds want to speak with him is to support some evidence that they have showing he took some kind of banned substance that Galea provided to him and which Galea possessed illegally, then I can understand his reluctance to cooperate with them, absent a subpoena, especially if he, too, may be a target. That could also allow for time, depending on his involvement to work out a deal, assuming he has some exposure from some angle not yet known or completely explored.

If they want to talk with him just to put together a dossier on Galea, then they should be told to stick it, gently, of course, because they are the government and not your friends. Just because you have nothing to hide, doesn't mean you give up a friend or your privacy. In 1984, they had the kids do the surveillance. The kids burned one person for no reason.
