That is what I remembered. He was setting himself up for an end around if the arbitrator came back with an unfavorable decision. That is what happened so I'm wondering about the end around. However, the others are probably right. Since that was the appeal it is now official. He won't be able to play even if he is able to get a federal court to hear the case. Not a Yankees fan so not thrilled this bailed them out of their stupid contract but happy that karma is biting the centaur.
I think the great philosopher, Ron White, said it best, "I had the right to remain silent but I did not have the ability".
Datkiem was a mad genius and way ahead of his time.
