Major League Baseball Players Association player representatives overwhelmingly agreed that New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez should be kicked out of the union during a 90-minute conference call the day he sued the MLBPA. However, union leaders said they could not legally pursue his expulsion, three sources on the call said. "That's what everyone was thinking," an anonymous player said Tuesday, Jan. 21. "We wanted to get on this call and not let him back. (To say), 'This is our game and we don't want you in it'."
If the MLBPA had it there way, Rodriguez would never play baseball again, but that will be a tall task to accomplish. If Rodriguez was kicked out of the MLBPA, he would become the first player since the 1995 player strike to be blacklisted from the union.
