(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.
