In just under a week, MLB and the MLBPA will be getting together for a little hearing. In that hearing the TRUTH will be revealed for the world to see and hear. That's right..the guilty until proven innocent hearing of ARod backed by his legal team of qualified attorneys will be fighting MLB's Ivory Tower / Fortress for ARods baseball life. On the face of this hearing, that's what's at stake. ARod has been a focal point of the PED scandal that has rocked the baseball world since the Jose Canseco utterances many years ago.
MLB has some phone records and some 'witnesses' (turncoats and experts alike) along with 'evidence' that may or may not be tainted, some of which may have been rendered with the understanding and guarantee that the results would be used for nothing more than a survey with no identification of any participants.
MLB has a LOT of explaining to do as it relates to the constant leaks and innuendo and complicit actions as it relates to PED's, their use and who benefited from the presence of these substances that have polarized fans more insidiously than the rivalry that exists between the Yankees/Red Sox and Giants/Dodgers combined.
Yeah.. the dirt and mudslinging about to happen will not exonerate MLB as the victims in this scandal. The victims are the fans.. The parties complicit to the actions are BOTH ARod (and other players) and Major League Baseball.
Up until now, the fans haven't been granted the chance to see MLB being fined, suspended and or cast out as 'near' criminal for their complicity in this scandal.. but ARod and his legal team has an opportunity to show the world & the fans of baseball what the truth really is..
It should make for quite a show if they have the strength to be honest. Thoughts?
