It reminds of the Delta House gang storming out of their hearing because they wouldn't stand for "America" being put on trial.

From a legal standpoint, you've persuaded me -- even convinced me -- that the process is fair. Or fair enough. But that doesn't mean that it's fair.

What we are watching is a mud fight, where fairness itself is irrelevant. If nothing more than for the entertainment value, I'd like to see both Selig and A-Rod take the stand.

That the process is unfair.

But, like I said, it's MLB's burden. So, unless Manfred cracked under cross- and that's not possible- and couldn't articulate the rationale for the penalty, but said, it was Bud's decision against his advise, there's really no reason that Bud needs to testify and say the same thing that Manfred did.

After all, if MLB couldn't prove its case through Manfred, its investigators, and "liars and felons" even for a first offense 50 game suspension, or failure to participate in the investigation, then ARod gets no penalty imposed.

This was an attempt/desire to embarrass Bud and search for fodder for ARod's soon to be dismissed personal lawsuit over this same matter. (See: Steelworkers v. Enterprise Car)

Agree with Alex's confusion here. Rodriguez's penalty is the most severe ever imposed, and it was imposed without any positive test. If Selig in fact imposed the penalty, isn't the subjective basis for the penalty at least somewhat relevant?

Convinced of what? I don't follow you here.

Seems like ARod's PR campaign has at least Alex convinced.

It's not a criminal case. The employer bears the burden of proof to show both the conduct occurred and that the penalty is reasonable and appropriate for the conduct. All of the proof points on the reasonable an appropriateness is made through comparison penalties and has nothing to do with Selig's motivation. It's really irrelevant.

Not a whole lot of sympathy for A-Rod, but I can understand where he's coming from. Selig's a pretty big part of this. Shouldn't A-Rod's lawyers be allowed to ask him some questions?

The only important walk-off AROD has had in his Yankees career.

Just watched his first interview on the YES network after his grievance hearing today. Francesca interviewed him for about 30 minutes. It was an unexpected interview...Francesca did not even promote because he had no idea A-Rod and his posse was showing up until 15 minutes prior to the interview.

If you have the YES network, it will be replayed tonight after the Nets game. If you don't google and I am sure it will be posted soon.
