The long, arduous triple-threat match between Alex Rodriguez, Major League Baseball and the New York Yankees came to a screeching halt on Wednesday afternoon. The three-time American League Most Valuable Player stormed out of his grievance hearing when arbitrator Fredric Horowitz refused to order baseball commissioner Bud Selig to testify.
Hours later, Rodriguez resurfaced, this time in the studio with WFAN host Mike Francesa. During an animated interview, Rodriguez, alongside one of his many legal advisers, spoke to the longtime New York radio host about his anger at Bud Selig, distrust of baseball, reason for fighting his suspension and where he expects to be in April.
The fallout, as you can imagine, will be felt by Rodriguez and Major League Baseball as his hearing continues over the next few weeks.
Here are the biggest Rodriguez soundbites and impassioned thoughts to take away from his time in the WFAN studios on Wednesday afternoon.
