otch double digits in the loss. Ahmed H
NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguezs lawyers updated his lawsuit against Major League
Baseball and Bud Selig, adding new criticism of the commissioner for not
testifying in the unions grievance to overturn the 211-game suspension given to
the New York Yankees star last summer.
Cheap Jerseys USA . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint
Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed
Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused
to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of
the hearing without testifying. The sides rested last Thursday after 12 days of
sessions, and a decision on whether to uphold or alter the discipline is
expected in January. "Mr. Selig chose to hide in his office in Milwaukee rather
than come testify at the grievance hearing in New York. In Mr. Seligs world,
apparently the buck does not stop with Bud," the new complaint said. "Mr. Selig
lacked the courage of his convictions to explain under oath the reasons for the
suspension and the conduct of his investigators. His silence on these issues
speaks volumes and leads to only one logical conclusion -- his actions, and
those of the MLB personnel he controls, were aimed at destroying the reputation,
career and business prospects of Alex Rodriguez." Rodriguez was suspended Aug. 5
for alleged violations of the sports drug agreement and labour contract, and he
played pending a determination of the grievance. As he did in the original
complaint, Rodriguez accused Selig of conducting a "witch hunt" against him. The
three-time AL MVP criticized the methods MLB employed in its investigation of
the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic, accused of distributing banned
performance-enhancing drugs. A-Rods lawyers included a photograph of Selig
posing with a fan wearing a red shirt that had "A-ROID" written across the
front. While the lawsuit attributes the photo to, the NESNs website
says the photo was from the 2009 All-Star FanFest and was taken from
NBCSportsRadios Twitter feed. "Sadly, this cowardly stance by Mr. Selig is
consistent with his past and highly inappropriate conduct in posing, smilingly,
with a young fan wearing a T-shirt with a derogatory message directed at Mr.
Rodriguez," the amended lawsuit said. "One cannot imagine the Commissioner of
any other professional sport -- or indeed the CEO of any business -- doing
something similar with respect to one of his or her players or employees." MLB
had the suit removed to federal court, and Rodriguezs lawyers are trying to
persuade U.S. District Judge Lorna G. Schofield to remand the case back to New
York state court. A hearing is scheduled for Jan. 23. Rodriguez claimed Selig
interfered with his existing contracts and prospective business relationships.
MLB says the case should be heard in federal court because of provisions of the
Labor Management Relations Act, known as Taft-Hartley, and intends to ask for
the suit to be dismissed. Later Tuesday, Rodriguezs lawyers released a stack of
documents, including a presentation dated Oct. 21. They called a news conference
for that evening with the intent to release papers, only to be blocked by an
order from Horowitz. The presentation criticizes the conduct of several MLB
investigators and New York City Police. The lawyers also released statements of
several people who were on Rodriguezs witness list but never testified at the
grievance hearing. Marcelo Albir and Lazaro Collazo accused MLBs investigators
of harassment, which the league denies. Gary L. Jones, who says he was a friend
of Porter Fischer, said he was paid $125,000 in $100 bills by MLB Senior
Vice-President Dan Mullin at the Cosmos Diner in Pompano Beach, Fla., last March
and $25,000 by Mullin in $50s and $100s for additional documents the following
month. He also states Jones told Mullin that the documents had been stolen. MLB
says the first payment was $100,000 and denies the comments Jones attributed to
Mullin. Robert Davis Miller alleged Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch told him he
was being paid $5 million by MLB in monthly installments, which the league also
denies. Cheap China Jerseys . The
Canadiens fell short in Game 4 with Matt Fraser scoring the 1-0 overtime goal to
tie this series, but arent hanging their heads from yesterdays loss. "Im pleased
with our team effort.
Cheap NFL Jerseys . Bartel, who is from Australia, punted 229 times for
9,904 yards with a 43.2 average in two seasons with the Ticats. Williams, the
first overall pick by Saskatchewan in 2010, signed with Hamilton as a free agent
a year ago and had one defensive tackle and one special teams tackle in just six
games with the Ticats last season.Blacksburg, VA ( - The
second-ranked Virginia Cavaliers continue their run through their schedule as
they take on in-state rival Virginia Tech in an ACC affair at Cassell Coliseum
on Sunday afternoon. Off to their best start since the 1980-81 season, the
Cavaliers are a perfect 18-0 on the campaign, one of just two unbeatens left in
the country along with top-ranked Kentucky. Tony Bennetts squad is coming off a
57-28 trouncing of Georgia Tech on Thursday, keeping the team atop the ACC
standings at 6-0. Buzz Williams first season at the helm in Blacksburg has been
a work in progress. The Hokies showed flashes of strong play during the
non-conference portion of the schedule, but ACC play has been a whole different
animal. Virginia Tech is one of three winless teams in the ACC, saddled with an
0-5 league mark. The Hokies enter with a six-game losing streak in tow,
including Thursdays 85-60 rout at the hands of Notre Dame. Virginia holds an
86-53 lead in this rivalry. The Cavaliers have won five straight meetings, but
the Hokies are 14-6 all-time in series games at Cassell Coliseum. Knowing that
Virginia is going to play great defense is much different than actually
experiencing it. Georgia Tech found that out first hand this week, as the
Cavaliers smothered the Yellow Jackets en route to an easy victory. The Cavs
held Tech to just 16 first-half points and 12 second-half points, as the
visitors shot just .245 from the floor overall in Charlottesville. It wasnt a
particularly strong offensive showing for Virginia either, but it didnt have to
be. The Cavaliers were led in the scoring department by Malcolm Broggdon, who
finished the game with 13 points.
Cheap NHL Jerseys. Justin Anderson and Anthony Gill were tied for
second with seven points apiece. Gaudy offensive numbers arent needed when you
are playing some of the best defense in the nation. Virginia is getting it done
better than just about every other team in the country. The Cavaliers lead the
nation in scoring defense, yielding just 49.3 ppg. Foes are being held to a mere
.335 shooting (second nationally). Virginia also dominates on the glass,
boasting of a +10.7 rebounding margin. Three of the five starters are averaging
double figures in scoring, led by Andersons 14.1 ppg. Brogdon adds 13.6 ppg,
followed by Gills 11.4 ppg. The Hokies were without leading scorer Justin Bibbs
for the second straight game and that really hurt Tech, which was simply no
match offensively for the high-scoring Irish. The result was a lopsided affair
that ended in 25-point blowout for Notre Dame. The Hokies shot just .387 from
the floor in the contest, although three players did notch double digits in the
loss. Ahmed Hill led the way with 13 points. Jalen Hudson added 12 points and
Devin Wilson finished with 11. Already lacking great scoring depth at a modest
67.6 ppg, Virginia Tech really could use Bibbs back on the floor. The talented
freshman guard is still dealing with a concussion suffered last week and his
status remains uncertain going forward. When on the floor, he is a reliable
scoring threat, as the 6-5 youngster is shooting .503 overall and putting up a
team-best 13.6 ppg. Adam Smith is the only other player on the roster with a
double-digit scoring average at 12.4 ppg.
