A Florida appeals court has ruled Major League Baseball can take a deposition from a cousin of Alex Rodriguez as part of the sport's lawsuit involving banned substances.
A South Florida judge has granted a delay in witness depositions in Major League Baseball's lawsuit against a now-closed clinic accused of providing banned substances to players.
Major League Baseball's Rob Manfred told ESPN.com that according to the league, the matter regarding Alex Rodriguez's cousin being at a team hotel has been resolved with the New York Yankees.
How "historic" a player is Alex Rodriguez now? The Yankees could determine that in the money they'll pay him in the future.
Yuri Sucart has dutifully served as his cousin Alex Rodriguez's personal assistant, but it's still unclear whether his job included obtaining steroids and injecting the superstar with them.
He gave a lengthy interview to ESPN and held a massive news conference. But the lingering holes in Alex Rodriguez's story about steroids still leave lots of questions in need of answers.
Alex Rodriguez said in a news conference from New York Yankees spring training in Tampa, Fla., that it was his cousin who provided and injected him with performance-enhancing drugs. It was Yuri Sucart to whom Rodriguez was referring.
Let's take Alex Rodriguez at his word and judge his baseball legacy, including his Hall of Fame candidacy, "from this day forward."
