A-Rod still hasn't met with feds about Galea

Leave a comment

Alex Rodriguez and I have something in common: Neither of us met with federal investigators in regards to Canadian doctor Anthony Galea on Friday.

“We’re going to continue to work together and cooperate,” he said. “I’m
going to talk to the Feds and Major League Baseball shortly.”
.

Rodriguez wouldn’t say why he didn’t go, or even what the purpose of the meeting was, only that he hoped to resolve the matter soon.

“Hopefully it will be done by Opening Day, and we can move on.”

Because of the planned meeting in Buffalo, Rodriguez originally wasn’t
expected to be in the lineup for Friday’s game against the Phillies,
however he is currently playing third and batting cleanup.

Brandon Crawford homers off brother-in-law Gerrit Cole

You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.

The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.

Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
