You have to wonder if Derek Jeter knew this report would be coming out.
The very week the team captain claims Alex Rodriguez has the support of the New York Yankees, a report on SI.com comes out that A-Rod tested positive for anabolic steroids, testosterone and Primobolan
Does it really matter if it was back in 2003 when he was with the Texas Rangers? Of course it does! He accomplished a lot that year.
Rodriguez led the American League in home runs, runs scored, and slugging percentage. I cannot forget to mention he won his first Most Valuable Player award that year, the Silver Slugger award, and his second Gold Glove award.
Naturally, Scott Boras and the Players Union will come to his defense. A-Rod told a reporter to go talk to the Union because he had nothing to say on the matter.
Somebody call Cynthia. I’m sure they can get all the information from her. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
So now the question comes out:
- How long has he been on steroids?
- Was the hype surrounding him really true or was it just the steroids that created the hype?
- The contracts he signed, did the teams pay for a player or for steroids?
Another drama for the Yankees to endure during Spring Training. Poor guys! While I do loathe the Yankees, I have to say I feel bad for a Jeter and a Mariano Rivera who will undoubtedly have to answer questions about this.
A-Rod, you are without a shadow of a doubt, A-Fraud
