NEW YORK -- Yankees President Randy Levine testified at Alex Rodriguezs grievance hearing Tuesday and denied conspiring with Major League Baseball on the 211-game suspension given to the New York third baseman last summer. Air Max 1 Uk Sale . On the 10th day of the hearing, which started in September, Levine was asked a series of questions by Rodriguez lawyer Joseph Tacopina, according to a person with knowledge of the proceeding. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential. The person said Levine testified for 10-15 minutes and denied having any personal gain from Rodriguezs suspension or the Yankees falling under the luxury tax threshold; and of having an agreement to receive a commission of any money the team saved because of the ban. Levine also denied discussing Rodriguezs discipline with Major League Baseball or Commissioner Bud Selig; and telling Rodriguez surgeon Dr. Bryan Kelly or anyone else that he wanted the player off the field, the person said. The person also said Levine testified he may have jokingly used the phrase "is he off the juice?" when talking with Rodriguez about other players who werent performing. Levine testified he had no exact recollection. The hearing resumed Monday before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, who also heard the case from Sept. 30-Oct. 3 and Oct. 15-18. Howard Gans, a lawyer for MLB, said in papers filed in federal court that Horowitz will hear the case daily through Nov. 26 rather than the original plan to recess after Friday and resume Dec. 16. MLB said U.S. District Judge Edgar Ramos in Manhattan issued an order Tuesday compelling Michael Sitrick, head of the public relations firm Sitrick & Co., to comply with a Sept. 19 subpoena issued by Horowitz to appear at the arbitration and to provide documents. Sitrick & Co. worked on Rodriguezs behalf earlier this year. In papers filed in New York Supreme Court on Oct. 29, MLB alleged Sitrick & Co. had provided records from Bosch to Yahoo Sports, which published a story Feb. 5 saying the name of 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun appeared in records of Biogenesis of America, the Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. MLB said in the court papers it believed the documents had been "provided to Sitrick & Co. by Rodriguez or others acting on his behalf." Miami New Times had reported Jan. 29 that Rodriguez bought human growth hormone and other performance-enhancing substances from Biogenesis during 2009-12. Sitricks lawyers, who had the matter removed to federal court, did not respond to an email seeking comment on Ramos order, which MLB said was read from the bench. Braun agreed July 22 to a season-ending 65-game suspension. Rodriguez was suspended on Aug. 5 for alleged violations of the sports drug agreement and labour contract, and the players union filed the grievance to overturn the penalty. It remains unclear whether Rodriguez will testify; he continued to play while contesting the penalty. The three-time AL MVP said four years ago he used PEDs while with the Texas Rangers from 2001-03, but has denied using them since. At the time of his suspension, MLB said the penalty was for "use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years" and for "engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioners investigation."

Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win. TORONTO -- Casey Janssen was hit hard. And the result hit the Toronto Blue Jays even harder. Sent into the game in the ninth inning to protect a 4-2 lead, the Blue Jays closer allowed home runs to Nick Castellanos and Eugenio Suarez as the Detroit Tigers pulled out a 5-4 victory on Friday. It was Torontos sixth loss in their past seven games as the club scrambles to remain in both the American League East and the American League wild-card races. "They got me tonight," said Janssen. "It stings. I feel bad, I feel bad for the boys. Were in a race, those things burn a little bit more." The Blue Jays opened up a 4-0 lead after two innings but could not add any more runs despite outhitting the Tigers 13-9 on the night. Janssen (3-1) was trying for his 19th save when he came in for the ninth. He allowed a leadoff double to J.D. Martinez, the Tigers left fielder who had a bad game in the field. A groundout to first by Alex Avila moved the runner to third and Castellanos tied the game with his seventh homer of the season. "Castellanos is an aggressive guy early, I wanted to throw a curveball in there," said Janssen. "It wasnt terrible and he blasted it out of there." Suarez put the Tigers ahead with his fourth homer of the season. "It was down and away, my bread and butter, and he blasted the thing out to centre," said Janssen. "I tip my cap to them." After Ian Kinsler hit a two-out double, the fourth extra-base hit of the inning allowed by Janssen, left-hander Aaron Loup entered to finish the inning. "It was definitely a big adrenalin boost," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Weve been scuffling to score runs. Im hoping we can look back at this as a bit of a trigger point." "Caseys been so good this year," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "They just came out swinging and got to him pretty quick there. Thats a tough one, no question about it, thats a tough one." The Blue Jays loaded the bases in the home ninth before Joe Nathan was able to nail down his 24th save of the season. Jose Bautista led off with a single. Colby Rasmus and pinch-hitter Juan Francisco walked with two out before Josh Thole fouled out to left field to end the game. "We came back, were still looking for that little magic," said Gibbons said. "We havent been able to get that this year at home." Right-handed reliever Al Alburquerque (3-1) pitched 1 2/3 innings to get the win. The Blue Jays wasted a solid outing from knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey. The right-hander allowed five hits, four walks and two runs in six innings. He struck out six before Dustin McGowan took over in the seventh. "Theyre all tough," said Dickey. "Any time you lose a game its tough. You feel for Casey, Ive been out there and done the same thing in an inning, and it hurts. Were teammates and were going to pick each other up. I can certainly empathize with his pain. Its no time to pout, thaats for sure. Cheap Nike Air Max 1 Trainers. "You have to start thinking outside of that line of this is a must win or does it hurt that much more? They all hurt. From here on in, it all matters. It mattered back in May when we were losing a game or winning a game. It matters, it always matters." Tigers right-hander Anibal Sanchez left the game with a runner at first and two out in the fifth with a right pectoralis strain after he threw over to first to hold Munenori Kawasaki. Left-hander Blaine Hardy replaced Sanchez. Sanchez, who will return to Detroit for an MRI on Saturday, allowed 10 hits, one walk and four runs while striking out three in 4 2/3 innings. Janssen, who was one of the players who expressed disappointment that the team did not make additions at the July 31 deadline for trades without waivers, admitted that he has not been at his best since the All-Star Game break. He fell ill during the break. "Sometimes things can streaky," said Janssen. "Right now, it doesnt seem like its streaking in the right direction for me. But I have to just continue to work, continue to execute pitches and maybe at times mix up what Ive been doing. The hitters might be adjusting to me so now its my turn to adjust to them. Im not quitting and we have a long ways to go." The Blue Jays (61-56) scored once in the first. Bautista walked, took third on a single by Dioner Navarro and a scored on a single by Danny Valencia. Toronto added three runs in the second. Kawasaki led off with a double on a fly to left centre that popped in and out of the glove of left fielder J.D. Martinez. Thole sacrificed Kawasaki to third.
