Alex Rodriguez Is Going To Be Just Fine
The New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez hit two homers in an extended spring training game, played some third base, and probably ruing any mention of Selena Roberts’ new book, “A-Rod,” which alleges many things like Rodriguez taking steroids in high school, as well as with the New York Yankees despite A-Rod saying he only did steroids during his tenure with the Texas Rangers, and also accuses him of tipping pitches to opposing hitters, which is probably the worst of all allegations. So, yes, Rodriguez is primed to return! Possibly even this Friday!
Considering the valid hulaballoo regarding the new Yankee Stadium and all of the baseballs going yard, can you imagine how many home runs Rodriguez will end up accumulating despite missing several weeks of the season? And it seems it doesn’t even matter if he’s not juiced because everyone is hitting them out. How about all of the media sure to bum-rush A-Rod upon his return? Like it’s going to be any different than it is now? Rodriguez is already under the microscope 24/7 and he seems to have this Barry Bonds sort of denial about him, but not really denial… more like, let’s talk about something else, wave of the hand sort of gesture. The guy is just not going to say anything anymore, especially considering how bad he is at lying, so mass media, have at it!
But, you should all read Jim Caple’s defense of A-Rod for a view of all things A-Rod that I agree with.
