Selig later said that he would no longer negotiate with Rodriguez, according to one of the sources.Several other sources say that Selig changed his mind about the settlement because he was furious with Rodriguez for telling reporters he would not negotiate.“All this is about money,” one of the sources said. “This shows the selfishness of this guy that he would go to arbitration and force himself back in the clubhouse and subject the team to a season-long media circus.” read more
