We learned yesterday that Alex Rodriguez filed separate lawsuits against Major League Baseball and a Yankees team doctor but there’s still plenty of drama where that came from.

According to Serge F. Kovaleski and Steve Eder of the New York Times Rodriguez grew so frustrated with what he perceived to be lack of support from the players union that he had one of his lawyers write a letter in late August to formally request that the union step aside as his chief representative on his arbitration panel for his appeal.
