(Newser) – A-Rod is not only appealing his suspension from baseball, he's suing the league. Alex Rodriguez filed his suit against MLB yesterday, claiming "tortious interference" as part of a "witch hunt" to get him out of baseball, reports the New York Times. The suit accuses the league of paying for the cooperation of Anthony Bosch, who ran the clinic at the heart of the latest doping scandal. The money totaled $5 million, says the lawsuit, which also claims the MLB paid $150,000 in cash for Rodriguez's stolen records. The news comes on the fifth day of A-Rod's suspension appeal in Manhattan, where the Yankees' legal team is getting a chance to grill Bosch on the stand, the New York Daily News reports.

When an athlete takes drugs he injures every competing athlete who does not take drugs. Shame on him...
