With tensions between Alex Rodriguez and Major League Baseball continuing to rise as they battle over A-Rod?s 211-game suspension, Team A-Rod offered a novel suggestion Monday that will never become reality:
Open A-Rod?s appeal hearing to all.
?What we prefer is for the hearing to be open publicly,? Joseph Tacopina, A-Rod?s lead attorney, said at a media gathering at the Midtown Manhattan offices of the law firm Reed Smith. ?It?s not serving us to have people hiding behind confidentiality rules. All we want is for the truth to come out.?
