A Paranoid A-Rod Sees An Empire Conspiracy

The current dust up between Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees is like watching rival mobsters rub each other out. You don't really know who to root for, but it's somehow pleasing to watch. The latest in the A-Fraud—Empire Soap Opera is the revelation that the injured third baseman thinks his bosses are deliberately slowing down his rehabilitation to prevent him from returning in 2013. Why? So the 'Steinbrenner Twins' can say he is 'medically unfit to play', allowing them to recover 80% of his bloated salary through insurance provisions. This comes on the heels of The Fraudulent One tweeting out news that a doctor cleared him to play in games. Yankees GM Brian Cashman shot back, "Alex should just shut the f--- up." Hello! To paraphrase Rick's final line from Casablanca, "Alex, I think this is the end of a beautiful friendship." Round up the usual suspects.
