    Dave is incorrect, the arbitrator is chosen jointly by MLB and MLBPA, and either can dismiss him/her at any time.

    It appears that I’ve been pronouncing Roger Angell’s surname incorrectly for quite a while.

    The point that I think gets overlooked is how ARod was treated as an employee of MLB. Cheater or not (and we know he is), if any regular American person had their employer treat them with the kind of very public defamation that ARod has endured from MLB and Selig in particular, they would absolutely have grounds for a law suit. Being a professional athlete doesn’t legally change the relationship of the employer/employee status quo, and MLBs conduct has been illegal.

      The MLB as an entity has a relationship with Mr. Rodriguez through the CBA and his union, but I don’t believe it is considered his employer in any legal sense; the Yankees sign his paychecks. I would think any lawsuit would revolve around the responsibilities MLB has as described in the CBA, rather than the more general case law and Federal (and possibly NY State) statues regarding employer-employee relationships. Though at least with respect to things like drug test privacy there may be standards (eg HIPAA) that still apply.
