NEW YORK - A lawyer for Alex Rodriguez says Major League Baseball's evidence against the third baseman is so weak he shouldn't serve even one inning of his 211-game suspension.
Joe Tacopina said on NBC's "Today" show that the evidence will "never stand up" in court or before an arbitrator.
Rodriguez and more than a dozen other players were suspended recently by baseball for their relationship with a clinic accused of distributing performance-enhancing drugs.
Unlike the other players, Rodriguez appealed the penalty and can play until there is a ruling. Tacopina says that MLB's case is based on evidence from the clinic's founder, Anthony Bosch, and he has "no credibility."
