Major League Baseball Players Association player representatives’ desire to kick Alex Rodriguez out of the union failed when union leaders informed them an expulsion was not legal, according to a report from Jeff Passan and Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports.
Passan and Brown write that the outraged player reps voiced their desire to expel Rodriguez during a 90-minute conference call on Jan. 13, the same day the suspended Yankees third baseman sued the MLBPA. When union leaders said the move was not legal, reps continued to push the issue and not one player defended Rodriguez.http://tracking.si.com/2014/01/21/alex-rodriguez-mlbpa-kick-out/
