Alex Rodriguez’s appeal is a sham

Mother Nature tried to bring justice to Major League Baseball on Thursday, keeping Alex Rodriguez off the field — where he belongs. The Yankees’ 5-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium was delayed by rain for 3 hours and 32 minutes.

There is no justice in Major League Baseball as long as the self-serving Yankees third baseman is allowed to keep playing games and affecting pennant races when he can’t even look questioners in the eye and say he didn’t obtain or use performance-enhancing drugs from the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic. His appeal is not based on exculpation, but on trying to collect as many paychecks as possible before the guillotine drops.
