Rodriguez is appealing his 211-suspension by Major League Baseball and in testimony this week Rodriguez admitted to buying evidence that would link him to the multiple violations of MLB's collectively bargained drug agreement.
Much of the evidence purchased included videotapes, affidavits and documents that could link him in any way to the Biogenesis Clinic and owner Tony Bosch. Some of this evidence could also be used in his defense and during the arbitration process.
Arbitrator Frederic Horowitz is expected to rule on this case in December and decide whether Rodriguez will serve the full suspension, partial or have it thrown out all together.
MLB in their presentation has maintained that this isn't a "witch hunt" like the defense would like you to believe, but justified because A-Rod in not a first time user of PEDs. MLB contends Rodriguez has violated the drug policy on numerous occasions and interfered in MLB's Biogenesis investigation.
There has been many allegations thrown back and forth from both sides regarding the motives behind what has now become a huge media circus in Manhattan.
