When arbitration begins on Monday, Rodriguez will be backed by an expensive team of attorneys who will do what they can to discredit Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch, who has cooperated with MLB, turning over a trove of documents and personal communications that baseball says reflect Rodriguez as a shameless violator of the league's anti-doping policies.
But hey, Jeter will be in the dugout. And will probably have a suburban full of gift baskets for Ladies Night.
