You can't make this stuff up, folks. Alex Rodriguez is suing his sport, his union—and, (since he's a member of the union) himself—in an effort to overturn his 162-game suspension. The Fraudulent One's handlers announced on Monday that he will be filing lawsuits against both Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association in federal court. The suit alleges that MLB engaged in "ethically challenged behavior" and leaked information on the case in violation of its own confidentiality rules. The suit also accuses the union of "bad faith," claiming it failed to adequately support A-Rod at the hearings and did not intervene in a civil suit filed by MLB in its Biogenesis investigation. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz concluded that Rodriguez used testosterone, human growth hormone and Insulin-like growth factor-1.
