Fans of shitestorms are praying that one of the names is Derek Jeter.
No, he said on the radio, he wasn’t guilty of any of the charges leveled against him. No, he’d never done anything wrong. No, he’d never used PEDs. No, he had never obstructed justice. No, no, no. He denied until the end, and then this innocent, falsely accused man took a suspension that took him out of baseball for a year.
Now he better hope that the government doesn’t have evidence that contradicts his radio testimony about never having obstructed justice. If he was lying about that, being in a world of trouble with Bud Selig will be the least of his problems.
Here is what Tom Harvey, a New York City criminal attorney who also acts as this paper’s legal analyst, and who has brought common legal sense to Rodriguez and the Biogenesis case all along, said on Tuesday:
“I think A-Rod’s best-case scenario is that all the information about his past drug use will be exposed as a result of the feds’ arrests of Bosch and others. Again, that’s his best-case scenario. Unlike MLB investigators, the feds have subpoena power and the ability to prosecute people for lying. The information the feds have gathered during the investigation could easily end up being revealed in court during the criminal prosecutions. And A-Rod could be called by either side to testify, subjecting him to questions about any and all of his prior drug use.”
The notion that the government is finished with Biogenesis now that they have put guys in handcuffs is ridiculous, the way the idea that Rodriguez is in the clear is ridiculous.
All right-minded people losers hope that it's Jeter.
All <strikethrough>right-minded people</strikethrough> losers hope that it's Jeter.
This, of course, comes as no surprise.
My point about ARod was never that he didn't use PEDS provided to him by Bosch; it was always that MLB overstepped its authority with the level of discipline they handed down
the feds have subpoena power and the ability to prosecute people for lying. The information the feds have gathered during the investigation could easily end up being revealed in court during the criminal prosecutions
