I Guess It Is Afraud
I am late on this and i apologize but I was busy with daddy duties this morning. I know most people know by now that the breaking news by Sports Illustrated is that Arod tested positive for steroids in 2003. I know lots of people can't believe it or think its a conspiracy or just hate the guy and are going to boo him even more. The thing about this is i am so sick of the steroid thing, i am not suprised anymore I just assume that they were all using and that is that. If Arod thought the book fallout is bad, thats a non issue now, once he hits Tampa for spring training this will be a story that won't go away, will it affect him, i don't know but I would think it would. I hope this doesn't stop the team, maybe they will all just rally around him for better or worse and carry this through the season to the World Series. I don't know how Girardi will handle this either, he has had a contentious relationship with the media and I could see this irritating him to no end when the media comes to him. I just wanted to point out also that this story has 4 sources and seems to be a very legit story. I am interested to see who else is out there but no one is more of a story then Arod. Brian Cashman has had no comment and Arod said talk to the union that he isn't going to discuss this right now. What a way to start spring training for the Yanks and Arod.
