Report: MLB Officials Needed Bodyguards To Deal With ARod
Buried in this New York Daily News story, an MLB source suggests that Alex Rodriguez made baseball officials fearful for their safety over the last few years:
Relations between Rodriguez, MLB and the Yankees became so heated in late 2013 and early 2014 that baseball executives and team officials hired extra security for protection, going so far as to have their homes and offices swept for bugging devices and employing bodyguards to accompany them, according to sources.
“He put everyone through a lot of undue grief and unnecessary expense,” said one baseball source.
A few thoughts:
2. Such an accusation against ARod would seem to require a followup question, wouldn’t it?
3. Did they file for a restraining order?
