NY Daily News: Madden: MLB denies colluding with MLBPA on illegal A-Rod bonus deal

[Yankee president Randy] Levine presented the [milestone bonus] plan to [MLB Executive Vice President of Labor Relations Dan] Halem, who represented MLB, and Michael Weiner, the late executive director of the Players Association, to hammer out the separate agreement, which included the Yankees and A-Rod sharing any profits.

According to Halem, Orza, who CNN described as having “helped craft the MLB marketing agreement,” was in fact not a part of the direct negotiations nor present at any meeting on the side agreement. He went on to say the other clubs, as well as the players, were notified by memo that the agreement was a separate marketing deal, which included a strict provision stating that the Yankees were not obligated to pay for any of the so-called milestones.

A Players Association official declined comment Saturday on Orza’s remarks, adding that the union is prepared to support Rodriguez in any action he may choose to take against the Yankees.
