NEW YORK -- The odds are against Alex Rodriguez in federal court as he tries to overturn his season-long drug suspension. For the past five decades, the U.S. Supreme Court has set narrow grounds for judges to consider when evaluating lawsuits to overturn arbitration decisions. That position was reaffirmed in 2001 when it ruled against Steve Garvey in his suit against the Major League Baseball Players Association stemming from the collusion cases of the 1980s. "I dont think he has very much of a chance," said Stanford Law School professor emeritus William B. Gould IV, the former chairman of the National Labor Relations Board. "There are many cases that are appealed from arbitration awards, but the case law at the Supreme Court level makes success very much a long shot." The Joint Drug Agreement between Major League Baseball and the players association gives the sports three-person arbitration panel -- the independent arbitrator plus one representative of management and the union -- jurisdiction to review discipline resulting from violations. The union filed a grievance after baseball Commissioner Bud Selig suspended Rodriguez for 211 games last August, and arbitrator Fredric Horowitz presided over 12 days of hearings last fall and cut the penalty Saturday to 162 games plus the 2014 post-season. Rodriguez is expected to sue under section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act of 1947, also known as Taft-Hartley, which allows actions for violations of collective bargaining agreements. "There are very specific and narrow grounds for overturning an arbitration award," said Jeffrey Kessler, a partner at Winston & Strawn who has represented players and unions in many sports. "Either there has to be a showing of partiality by the arbitrator, or there has to be a showing that there as a manifest disregard of some settled legal principle, or there has to be a fundamental denial of whats called arbitral due process -- the procedures were completely defective -- or it could be in a collective bargaining context a decision thats contrary to what we call the essence of the CBA. So basically there are four targets and they have to hit one of them, and theyre not easy." Garvey had sought about $3 million from the $280 million settlement in the collusion cases. While the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for Garvey and overturned the decision by arbitrator Thomas Roberts, the Supreme Court reversed. "Established law ordinarily precludes a court from resolving the merits of the parties dispute on the basis of its own factual determinations, no matter how erroneous the arbitrators decision," the court wrote in an 8-1 decision. Rodriguezs lawyers are expected to request a preliminary injunction and attempt to depose Selig -- Horowitz refused to compel Selig to testify at the arbitration, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing. MLB may attempt to quash a subpoena and force a judge to rule. "Theres a good arbitrator there, and Im sure he was very careful to pay attention to the record," said George Nicolau, baseballs arbitrator from 1986-95. "No court is ready to overturn that, I think, based on longstanding decisions." The Supreme Court ruled in 1960 that "the refusal of courts to review the merits of an arbitration award is the proper approach to arbitration under collective bargaining agreements. The federal policy of settling labour disputes by arbitration would be undermined if courts had the final say on the merits of the awards." In that case, United Steelworkers of America v. Enterprise Wheel and Car Corp., Justice Stephen O. Douglas wrote "an arbitrator is confined to interpretation and application of the collective bargaining agreement; he does not sit to dispense his own brand of industrial justice." That case was cited by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 1976 when it refused a request by MLB to vacate the decision by arbitrator Peter Seitz overturning baseballs reserve clause in the Andy Messersmith-Dave McNally case.

The game started a stretch of five of six at home, and a difficult stretch of four in six nights, with the New York Rangers in Winnipeg Friday, and then back to back games, home to Dallas Sunday and in St. Louis Monday. Vancouver is now four points back of Dallas, the Jets five. The game was the 1,000th for Henrik Sedin and the 599th for Andrew Ladd. The first period was scoreless with the Canucks outshooting the Jets 14-9 and both Ondrej Pavelec and Eddie Lack were forced to make a number of good saves. Penalties were the story of the first as the Jets were shorthanded three times, the Canucks twice. The Canucks built momentum off three straight power plays. Andrew Ladd opened the scoring at 3:48 of the second, beating Lack high blocker from the slot, on a tape to tape pass from Bryan Little. Jacob Trouba also drew an assist. For Ladd, it was his 18th of the year and for Little his team-leading 53rd point of the year. At 9:01 of the period Evander Kane was awarded a penalty shot but fired it over the net. A face-off win and a fortunate bounce led to the Canucks goal that tied the game. A shot from the point went off a leg to an open Alexandre Burrows who scored his first of the year. Canucks outshot the Jets 10-7 in the second. Jets came out firing in the third, outshooting the Canucks 16-5. Michael Frolik redirected a pass from Olli Jokinen past Lack to restore the one goal lead for the Jets at 2:18. Keaton Ellerby also picked up an assist on the goal, Froliks 13th of the year. The Jets pressed for the two-goal lead but Lack was equal to the task leading to the tying goal, again by Burrows, and again a strange one.dddddddddddd Jannik Hansen got his stick on a pass in behind the Jets net, it deflected up in the air and over the net to the front of the goal where Burrows batted it out of mid-air to make it a 2-2 game and forcing overtime. The five minute overtime went without a whistle with chances at both ends, but no goals. Final shots were 34-33 in favour of the Jets and it was off to the shootout - that went as follows: Setoguchi no, Burrows no, Ladd no, Jensen no, Jokinen no, Chris Higgins yes.Trouba again led the Jets in ice time with a career high of 27:43. Toby Enstrom was next at 25:54, Blake Wheeler led all forwards at 23:44, Ladd 23:34. Zack Bogosian had five shots on goal. Jets were five for five on the PK and zero for four on the PP.For Paul Maurice, it was another frustrating game on a night his team needed two points and played well enough to get two points. “Its like any 2-2 hockey game. Theres going to be parts where you dont really like it. I thought we had control, a little loose in the neutral zone at times, a couple problems getting the puck out but they had the exact same game. We hemmed them in at times and up 16 in the third, so we werent sitting back, we were going. Its a loss because of the shootout. The compete was there but at the end of the day you have to win. From the start of the third we carried it, played well enough to go ahead 3-1.” Friday vs New York Rangers (TSN Jets, TSN 1290), Sunday vs Dallas (TSN Jets, TSN 1290), Monday in St. Louis (TSN Jets, TSN 1290.)
