Alex Rodriguez issued a statement responding to the comments Bud Selig made during the World Series about standing behind MLB’s investigation team.
Here’s what A-Rod said:
“I am deeply troubled by my team’s investigative findings with respect to MLB’s conduct. How can the gross, ongoing misconduct of the MLB investigations division not be relevant to my suspension, when my suspension supposedly results directly from that division’s work?
It is sad that Commissioner Selig once again is turning a blind eye, knowing that crimes are being committed under his regime. I have 100% faith in my legal team. To be sure, this fight is necessary to protect me, but it also serves the interests of the next 18-year-old coming into the league, to be sure he doesn’t step into the house of horrors that I am being forced to walk through.”
And, you guys, he actually waited until after the World Series to release the statement. Can you believe it? Alex is growing up.
