A-Rod met with MLB today to talk about the poker stuff

7 Comments

Alex Rodriguez met with Major League Baseball officials in Baltimore today. The topic: those tabloid/blog reports about his underground poker games and his alleged trip to Mohegan Sun.

MLB is not at all happy with A-Rod over this stuff. No word on whether part of that unhappiness has anything to do with his presence at Mohegan Sun somehow interfering with Major League Baseball’s extensive advertising relationship with Mohegan Sun. Awwwwwk-ward!

I’m willing to bet all of the canned goods on New York bodega shelves in advance of this hurricane that A-Rod gets no discipline out of this. I’d make the same bet even if they hadn’t already been looted bare.

Update: Rodriguez was quoted afterwards as saying that the two-hour meeting “went well.”

“They asked questions and I answered them,” he said. “I’ll let them review it, chew on it and then let them come back to us.”

Rodriguez also indicated that he denied much of what has been written about his participation in underground poker games.

“All the lies, you just can’t put up with that kind of stuff,” he said. “You just want facts and you always want to be treated fairly and I think I have been.”
