Do you believe in coicidence?
U.S. District Court Judge Edgardo Ramos in Manhattan yesterday granted MLB’s request for a hearing in its bid to dismiss Rodriguez’s lawsuit over his suspension. He scheduled court for Feb. 14, the same day the Yankees will be opening their training camp in Tampa, Florida.
We can expect a media circus in Tampa because, well, (a) they are the Yankees, (b) Masahiro Tanaka is in town, (c) they spent a few hundred million on “others” named Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury. Oh, and (d) Derek Jeter is back.
But it’s not looking like Alex Rodriguez will be there because, I am assuming, he wants/needs to be at that hearing. I mean, he can’t storm out of that one, too, can he?
