A-Rod Sees Suspension As A Needed 'Timeout'

Alex Rodriguez is all over the place. On the one hand, he is suing MLB and the players' association to void his 162-game ban—and actually plans to attend Yankee Spring Training. On the other hand, he stated yesterday (at a press conference in Mexico) that 2014 will provide him "a year to rest mentally and physically prepare myself for the future and begin a new chapter of my life." In fact, he believes MLB may have done him a "favor" because he's "played 20 years without a timeout." New nickname: The Delusional Centaur.
