Steve Solloway: A-Rod's defensiveness leaves no one indifferent
By Steve Solloway

Hold on, America, Alex Rodriguez has the stay of execution you didn't want him to get. He can play for the New York Yankees while appealing the suspension Major League Baseball slapped on him Monday.

He has exited your personal dunk tank without ever splashing down. He's walked away from the public stocks in the village square.

MLB uses technology in Biogenesis investigation
BY RONALD BLUM

NEW YORK -- Facebook friends. Transcripts of BlackBerry instant messages. Records of texts.

Major League Baseball's investigators used an arsenal of high-tech tools to collect the evidence that persuaded a dozen players to accept 50-game suspensions this week for their ties to the Biogenesis clinic.

And when it came time to meet with the players' association, they flashed some of their documentary proof. While there was not enough time for the union to thoroughly examine what baseball had collected, there was little doubt there was an electronic trail, one of the people familiar with the meetings said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no public statements were authorized.

MLB: A-Rod in 2 different worlds with Yankees
By RONALD BLUM

NEW YORK — Life with Alex Rodriguez breaks down in strange ways for the New York Yankees.

There’s before and after games, and it’s not real pleasant.

“A litigious environment,” general manager Brian Cashman calls it.

Then there are the hours when A-Rod is on the field and at the plate. Between the lines, among the pinstripes, it’s one for all and all for one.
