A-Rod's Illegal Poker Games Could Send Him Up the River

Alex Rodriguez Poker


Alex Rodriguez hasn't had it easy since he moved to New York and started playing for the Yankees. Now he may not have to worry about that for awhile since he's facing a possible suspension.

ESPN reports that an unidentified Major League Baseball executive said the league is investigating allegations that A-Rod played in some underground and very illegal poker games, one of which turned violent. The game in question took place at a record executive's mansion where one of the players threatened to throw down when he refused to pay the half million he owed in losses.

The suspension comes from the fact that this isn't his first warning about playing in illegal poker games. Commissioner Bud Selig warned the third baseman back in 2005 that his participation in the games might attract greedy gamblers looking to pull another Pete Rose on his team, which would naturally lead to a lifetime suspension. So far, however, the investigations have only dealt with A-Rod's card-playing ways, not his attempt to bet on his or any other MLB team.
