Perhaps Selig bears greater responsibility in this matter Rodriguez discipline is based on his powers in the JDA rather than a scientifically based positive test. But Horowitz evidently did not see it that way. He did not compel Selig to testify, perhaps because he felt the commissioner testimony would mirror Manfred and ultimately was not necessary.
One thing is certain: There will be more noise. More questions raised about why Selig, the accuser, would not face Rodriguez, the accused. More questions about the integrity of baseball investigation, the allegations from A Rod camp that the sport purchased stolen documents and that one of its investigators engaged in inappropriate sexual relations with a witness.
