Alex Rodriguez denies report that he paid for evidence


Per the Associated Press,

Alex Rodriguez paid $305,000 for evidence that could be used in the case involving the Biogenesis of America drug clinic, the Daily News reported Saturday. The allegation was denied by a spokesman for the Yankees’ third baseman.

The newspaper said Rodriguez and his representatives confirmed the payments during testimony this week in the player’s grievance hearing. Rodriguez is attempting to overturn his 211-game suspension.

The report is that A-Rod spent about $305,000 to buy evidence such as video surveillance, documents, and other affidavits. It is possible that there may in fact, be much more to it than just video clips, documents, and affidavits, but that is all we now right now based on this report.

“It’s not true and as usual not only are certain parties leaking information but they are leaking false information,” Rodriguez spokesman Ron Berkowitz said in an email to The Associated Press.

The A-Rod biogenesis case never ceases to surprise people nowadays. It seems like every so often something else pops up in the news regarding the case. Hopefully everything will be put to rest, and a verdict will be decided when the hearings resume on the week of November 18.

What do you think of the report? How much can we trust A-Rod with his denial?

    Nothing Arod or his camp says can be trusted. He has been caught in too many lies. Regardless of how great a player he is or was I am sick of him.
