A-Rod’s Lawyer Almost In Brawl In Court

Yankees_Alex_Rodriguez_2013According to the New York Daily News, the lawyers for Alex Rodriguez and former Biogenesis chief Anthony Bosch nearly fought during the embattled slugger’s appeal hearing two weeks ago.

According to several sources with knowledge of the altercation, [Joseph] Tacopina instigated a confrontation with Julio Ayala, one of the Miami attorneys who represent Anthony Bosch, the proprietor of the now-defunct Biogenesis clinic that was a source of performance-enhancing drugs for more than a dozen big leaguers — and MLB’s chief witness.

The appeal of Rodriguez’s record 211-game suspension for his ties to Biogenesis and allegedly interfering with MLB’s investigation began two weeks ago and is still underway. In the meantime, A-Rod’s legal team has filed lawsuits against both MLB for their “witch hunt” and Yankeees team doctor Christopher Ahmad for misdiagnosing his left hip injury last fall.
