Arod scandal [2]Even though his appeal hearing is in a monthlong recess, Alex Rodriguez made news twice Tuesday: once for something he did and once for something his lawyer says he did not.

Rodriguez’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, told CNN that Rodriguez paid more than $300,000 to obtain evidence relating to Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis scandal.

Tacopina also told CNN that his client “absolutely” did not use illegal performance-enhancing drugs supplied to him by Biogenesis or its proprietor, Anthony Bosch, who is now baseball’s star witness against the New York Yankees third baseman.

In a further twist to a battle that grows nastier and more bizarre by the day, a source told ESPNNewYork.com that $200,000 of A-Rod’s money went to the same man Major League Baseball had previously paid $150,000 for the records that allegedly link Rodriguez to the now-shuttered Coral Gables, Fla., clinic suspected of supplying PEDs to ballplayers.
