You've probably already heard, but Sports Illustrated is reporting that A-Rod tested positive for steroids in 2003, under a survey program that set the stage for MLB's current testing program. I guess when it rains it pours in Yankee land. First Clemens, then Pettitte, now A-Rod? Granted, A-Rod was with the Rangers that year and he has won two MVPs since testing was instituted (not to mention a 50 homerun season), but still. This is pretty damaging. I'm sure I'll be making fun of A-Rod in a few posts from now, but this one hurts. Especially since A-Rod has been a target for all Yankee-haters who love to talk about how we moved away from developing players and just overpaying for free agents. Now he's drug-enhanced. Not cool A-Rod. Not cool.
