    Players want to kick Pay Rod out of Player's Union

    Didn't see a thread on the latest A-Rod shenanigans...

    Is there was anyone left in baseball who doesn't completely despise A-Rod?

    Not a single player took up for him on the conference call where players expressed a desire to kick him out of the union.

    Unnamed player calls for A-Rod to be scared to come back and try to play after suing his own union...

    What is going to happen a year from now when his suspension is completed?

    Can't imagine the Yankees releasing him considering the money involved and no way another team would touch him at this point.

    I'm sure all the legal minds in the Yankees employ have been investigating any and all potential ways to void his contract...

    Textbook narcissistic sociopath.

    They could release him as a sunk cost. He goes through waivers and doesn't get claimed. Then any other team could pick him up for the minimum salary. Perhaps someone like the Marlins who could pay him minimum salary and give them a decent bat and glove at 3rd.

    While I understand the hatred for ARod, what is wrong with him suing an organization that he believes has harmed him? Should the players union be allowed to do whatever it wants because its the only game in town?

    There is a lot of argument from some fans that ARod is being shafted (Deadspin is almost ridiculous in their defense of ARod) but to me, the fact that the players won't come to his defense is extremely telling. This is a close knit union that basically fights about anything MLB tries so that the players aren't backing him tells me all I need to know.

    Nothing is wrong with it but when you do something like that, you have to expect the enmity of the other players.

    As for the MLBPA harming ARod, I would say ARod harmed himself. Perhaps the MLBPA wasn't terribly zealous in defending him but he did have his own lawyers. It wasn't like he was some guy off the street that had a wet behind the ears public defender representing him.

    I think we all realize he's pretty delusional in pretty much all matters. He probably figured he could sue his own union and the others in the union wouldn't get mad at him.

    Yeah, could you imagine what would happen if a Teamster sued the Teamsters? He'd be Hoffa'd in a NY minute.

    ARod will never play MLB again. The Yankees will eat the rest of of his contract after his suspension expires. I would be shocked if anyone else takes him on after he has threatened sue everyone in MLB. He's a leper in MLB and he will be in the proverbial MLB leper colony for life now.
