(Manhattan, NY) -- Suspended Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is making good on his threat to sue Major League Baseball. The embattled slugger has filed a lawsuit against MLB and the Players' Association in hopes of overturning an arbitrator's ruling from Saturday that suspends him for the entire 2014 season. The initial suspension of 211 games issued in August was reduced to 162 games, or one full season, but is still the longest performance-enhancing drug suspension in baseball history. The suit claims the MLB-appointed arbitrator was not impartial and that the union didn't fairly represent him.
