Alex Rodriguez has decided to voluntarily drop his charges on Major League Baseball, the Commissioner's Office, and the Major League Players Association, according to many media reports Friday. Although Rodriguez can refile charges against these organizations, it seems unlikely. In the event that he does not refile charges, Rodriguez allow his 162-game suspension to uphold.
On the due date to make a decision, Rodriguez decides against on furthering his case against these organizations. Many people believed that choosing to lawsuit would be an uphill battle for Rodriguez, and it seems like he may have felt similarly. Should this be the end of the Rodriguez saga, it would end the Biogenesis scandal as well.
The Yankees now are nearly guaranteed of not paying Rodriguez his owed $25 million this season. We likely won't see the third baseman back on the field until 2015.
