MLB wants A-Rod's suit thrown out
By Andrew Marchand
Major League Baseball filed a motion to move Alex Rodriguez's lawsuit against the league and commissioner Bud Selig to a federal court in the hope that a judge will eventually decide to dismiss the case.
The motion, filed on Monday in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, requests the federal court to take the lawsuit. MLB believes a federal judge would rule that Rodriguez is bound by the collective bargaining agreement to pursue his appeal through the arbitration process.
