A-Rod knows he’s going down, and he wants to see who else he can take with him. He’s filing a medical grievance against the Yankees with MLB and also preparing a medical malpractice suit against team doctor Chris Ahmad, both over an injury to his left hip that was surgically repaired last January. He claims the Yankees knew his hip was injured, but didn’t tell him and had him continue to play, hoping to make the injury worse so that he could never play again and the team would be done with him.
Meanwhile, Brian Cashman’s former mistress, Louise Meanwell (you can’t make this stuff up), is trying to force A-Rod’s new lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, to drop A-Rod because of an alleged conflict of interest because Tacopina’s firm has represented her. She spent time in jail for trying to extort money from Cashman and for stalking him. She also claims that Cashman was aware that some of his players used PED’s and that he gave her names.
It’s a sordid mess that promises to get much darker and dirtier before it ends.
With Anthony Weiner fading, this is a gift from the gods to the NYC tabloids.
