This is wonderful. Alex Rodriguez has released a handwritten(!) letter in which he apologizes to all of his fans for, uh, whatever it is we've all decided he needs to apologize for. This idea was surely thought up by some overpaid brand consultant. "Alex, our data shows that baseball fans associate handwriting with…
A-Rod may just be looking into a different camera, or he may be staring off into the distance, wondering what's become of his life, but either way, he just doesn't feel like smiling. He could also have incredibly serious thoughts on salad.
A-Rod has dropped his lawsuits against MLB, Bud Selig, and the MLBPA, meaning his 162-game suspension will stand. A reminder: Baseball's war on drugs is an immoral shitshow.
Today, famed baseball writer Peter Gammons appeared on Mike Lupica's show on ESPN Radio to talk about Alex Rodriguez's current steroid saga.
There are already plenty of reasons to call bullshit on Major League Baseball's crusade against Alex Rodriguez, but here's another one.
You know what this Alex Rodriguez appeal case has been missing all this time? A lawyer fight! Thanks to Rodriguez's attorney, Joe Tacopina, we finally got one. Someone hold Tacopina's cuff links, because he's ready to swing.
You can't pick up a magazine or turn on the radio these days without hearing about a new scandal in the world of sports. This player's career was a front for a massive interstate drug smuggling operation; that league's games were fixed for the benefit of gamblers; players and owners from that other league were…
It's taken some time, but we've finally gotten there: the single dumbest thing you've ever read about Alex Rodriguez and the Biogenesis case. Our captain is Christopher Gasper at The Boston Globe. Our vessel is this column crucifying the "Pinstripe Pariah" for being allowed to play while he appeals his suspension.
Ricardo Rodriguez, the owner of A-Rod Grocery in New York City, wants to fix his store's public image in light of the downfall of Alex Rodriguez. So, he's trying to find a suitable new name.
As you all know, Major League Baseball seems determined to prematurely end the career of one of the greatest players in the history of the sport. Given that the 211-game suspension provides chance both to attack the never-popular A-Rod and to join a PED witch hunt, it has the enthusiastic backing of a lot of the…
A-Rod's lawyer Joe Tacopina "would love nothing more" than to defend A-Rod and to talk about his testing history. If only MLB would be kind enough to waive the confidentiality agreement in the joint-drug agreement!
Actually, circus is no longer a useful word. We just need to make up a new one to describe what is going on between the New York Yankees and Alex Rodriguez because it is an absolute colossterfuck. Rodriguez's lawyer, Joseph Tacopina made several serious allegations against the Yankees and president Randy Levine…
We asked, and once again you delivered. What follows is the best of the photoshop contest submissions we got for this image of A-Rod hitting the town in Florida last week. You jerks never manage to disappoint.
He did manage to find a baseball field in East Hampton to use as a backdrop, so you know he's doing the legwork on this developing story.
I started a new job at Deadspin about three weeks ago, and I endured a tough first stretch. That was, in part, because, like anybody starting a new job, I wasn’t sure I could pull it off.
We had to wait until the second inning thanks to some iffy baserunning and the human element, but Alex Rodriguez made his season debut moments ago in Chicago and it was, as expected, a shitshow. He was lustily booed in his first at-bat since Major League Baseball suspended him for 211 games.
