His lawyer was on the Today Show with Matt Lauer this morning....
A-Rod’s combative new lawyer, Joe Tacopina, was on the “Today Show” this morning. He repeated some of his recent talking points about how he and A-Rod would love to talk about all of the stuff that has gone into the Biogenesis case and his defense but that he is prohibited from doing so by the confidentiality provisions of the Joint Drug Agreement. Then Matt Lauer said this about a letter he just received from MLB:
“They sent us a letter saying that if you’re willing to sign this letter, that they are willing to waive the confidentiality clause in the Joint Drug and Prevention Program, that they’ll be allowed to talk about everything and you’ll be allowed to talk about everything. They said that would include all prior violations of the program committed by Rodriguez, all documents, records, communications, text messages and instant messages related to Rodriguez’s treatment by Anthony Bosch.”
Tacopina offered to read the letter. Then stumbled this out:
“Listen. We would love nothing more than to be able to discuss the testing history, the scientific evidence and the tests of Alex Rodriguez under this JDA drug program, nothing more.”
Now I know his lawyer is saying that Yankees continued to play through injury in playoffs last year and Yankees knew about his health issues. However, as Levine pointed out the media asked him prior to playoffs how he felt and he said, "great, never better...etc" so we shall see what happens but this is getting ugly LINK
