Must See Video: The A-Rod Scandal

Anthony Bosch, who ran a secret doping practice for pro athletes. It was last summer, after Bosch was exposed, that Rodriguez and 13 others, all Bosch's clients, were suspended. All accepted their penalties except Rodriguez who appealed. In Rodriguez's appeal hearing, Tony Bosch testified for five days, behind closed doors. Tonight, he spoke publicly for the first time on CBS 60 Minutes.

I am so glad the truth comes out and this cheating bastard A-Roid got his due....

Conspiracy in the Bronx: Are the Yankees Faking A-Rod's Quad Injury to Collect Insurance Money?

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez believes that the team is misrepresenting his quadriceps injury simply to collect insurance money. He had a second opinion on his injury that confirmed he is healthy (video above).

Michael L. Gross, chief of the division of sports Medicine and the orthopedic director of The Sports Medicine Institute at Hackensack University, told WFAN on Wednesday that Rodriguez has no injury.

"To be perfectly honest,'' Gross told host Mike Francesa, "I don't see any sort of injury there.''

Rodriguez, who's earning $28 million this season, was scheduled to be activated Monday for the first time this season after undergoing January hip surgery. Yet, the Yankees ordered him to undergo an MRI exam in New York where he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strained quadriceps, keeping him sidelined at least another week to 10 days.

General manager Brian Cashman released a statement Wednesday night firing back at Rodriguez.

"I heard via a text message this afternoon from Alex Rodriguez that he had retained a doctor to review his medical situation. In media reports, we have since learned that the doctor in question has acknowledged that he did not examine Mr. Rodriguez and that he was not retained to do a comprehensive medical examination of Mr. Rodriguez. Contrary to the Basic Agreement, Mr. Rodriguez did not notify us at any time that he was seeking a second opinion from any doctor with regard to his quad strain."

Cashman said Rodriguez told him July 12 that he had "tightness" in his quadriceps and reported "stiffness" on Sunday, saying he should not play Sunday or Monday. It was at that point Rodriguez was sent to have an MRI exam.

"As always, we will follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Basic Agreement, and will again re-evaluate Alex in Tampa tomorrow, as our goal is to return him to the lineup as soon as he is medically capable of doing so," Cashman said.

Rodriguez reported Wednesday to the Yankees' spring-training facility in Tampa.

A-Rod Playing High Stakes Poker Again In Pocono Casino

Everyone's Favorite Yankee,  Alex Rodriguez was spotted last Monday in a high-stakes gaming room at the Mohegan Sun Casino in the Poconos, sources told The Post.

The injured third baseman was in Pennsylvania to play rehab games with the minor league Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

A-Rod showed up at the casino at about 8 p.m., workers told The Post.

He had a steak dinner and then entered a special high-roller gaming room with two pals, according to workers.

"There are mostly slots and blackjack tables in the high limits room," the blackjack dealer said, noting that the room is often set up with a special table for big-time gamers to play poker.

Another card dealer at the Wilkes-Barre, Pa., casino saw the Yanks slugger enter the high-stakes room.

Star-struck Poconos gamblers tried to chat A-Rod up as he passed through the casino, but witnesses said he and his pals did not want to be hassled by patrons.

"I saw a few women approach his entourage to get a picture with him but they were turned down and told to 'Keep walking.' It was sad seeing that," she said.

A greeter in the high-limit room saw A-Rod enter and estimated he was there for about two hours.

"They wanted to keep to themselves," the greeter said.

The evening started with dinner at the casino's Ruth's Chris steakhouse.

Jose Reyes Never Felt Tag by A-Rod on play at 3B

Jose Reyes told NY Daily News Reporter Anthony Mccarron that he never felt a tag and A-Rod  played it coy by saying, "I think I just touched a little bit of his sleeve" before later admitting, "Whether I did or not, you guys had a better view than I did."

The sweep of a phantom tag at third base in the seventh inning, the only thing that matters is that Reyes was called out.

Terry Collins was ejected in the heated argument that followed with plate umpire Jerry Layne and the Mets never really had a chance after the play, despite trailing by only two runs at the time.

"We were losing, 3-1, man on third base, less than two out, maybe we score that run and it's a different ball game," Reyes said.

"That's a huge out," Rodriguez said. "A big momentum-changer for us. A big play."

A-Rod Calls Jose Reyes "the world's greatest player playing shortstop"

According ESPN's Mike Mazzeo, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez says the best player in baseball doesn't play in the Bronx, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto or St. Louis.

He plays in Queens.
"They have the world's greatest player playing shortstop over there, and the most exciting," Rodriguez said, referring to electrifying New York Mets leadoff hitter Jose Reyes. "I turn on the TV every time I get a chance to watch him."

Reyes is enjoying what Rodriguez called an "all-world" season for the Mets in 2011. He currently leads the majors with 121 hits, 15 triples and is tied with Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for the top spot with a .352 batting average. Reyes ranks second in stolen bases (30) and runs scored (65).

Reyes is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, and despite what Mets owner Fred Wilpon said, could very well command a contract equal to -- if not higher than -- the seven-year, $142 million deal given to Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford last offseason.
"I'm a huge baseball fan and anytime you see a kid like Reyes, he's very exciting," Rodriguez said Friday afternoon before the Yankees took on the Mets at Citi Field. "If I wasn't playing third base, I'd definitely buy a ticket and try to come all weekend (to the Subway Series), because you have great players all over the field, and right now, there's not a player out there that's playing at a higher level than Jose Reyes."
