A-Rod Update

Apparently A-Rod will be sitting down with Peter Gammons tonight to address the SI article according to Mike Francessa on the Fan. Should be interesting to see what happens.

I've been thinking about how crushing it would be if it came out that someone like Jeter used steroids. Not that I think that is likely, but if it did it would hurt. Not because he cheated though, but because he hit so few homeruns anyway. So if it ever comes out that he used steroids, he better have a very good explanation for why he is constitutionally incapable of hitting for power. It is a moot point however since I don't believe he ever used. Believe me, Canseco would have been all over that years ago if Jeter was someone he could call out.

Not to mention that if Jeter was on that report, I think his name would have gotten aired out before A-Rod's.

But, the fat chick wasn't doing a hatchet job on Jeter.(Must-sell-books)
I've seen (well reasoned)speculation that it was the blonde formerly known as Mrs.Rod that dropped the dime.
Probably wearing one of her designer tshirts.
And taking her to lunch on the alimony. ("Leave the dessert tray, Ramone.")
I did my whole weigh in on the ARod interview post.

if that's true about the former Mrs. Rodriguez, that's pretty dirty.

Whasername (Roberts?) that wrote the article, is writing a biograpy of ARod, and has vbeen interviewing the ex for the book.
It's not proof, but dropping a remark like "Well, Alex said there was a list he was on..."
Tell ya something. If I was pulling down 30 mil a year, this morning there would have been some lab rat driving his new Porsche to a press conference swearing theat he randomly switched labels on jars of piss to "ensure confidentiality."
But, then, if I was Clemens, Mac the dick would havwe spent his six months in Club Fed planning on how he was going to spend those new millions when he got out. And getting daily updates on how the state of the art medical reatments were going for his sick little boy.

Cynthia was at the Gammons interview today with Alex where Alex said he never knew he had tested postive until Selena Roberts asked him about it on Thursday, so anonymous Joe I think the 'well-reasoned' speculation is not.

Roberto Alejandro said...

I heard that Cynthia was at the press conference as well, suggesting that she was not involved in the leak.

I didn't see the press conference.
I did hear him say that in 2004, he was told he "may or may not" be on the list.
I may have been completely unfair in mentioning Cynthia.
BUT--Roberts got word of "The List" somewhere, and ONLY got ARod's name with that information.
It's interesting how the "real" media typs jump to her defense, too. Of course, they don't consider what they do "stalking."
I did hear her say Saturday that ARod was "anxious to see her escorted out" of the weight room. She may not have seen any cops, but I'm pretty sure she got out ahead of them.
I bet he didn't call anybody between Thursday and Saturday because he figured she was there fishing--make an accusation and use his response as proof of the rumor. She had to know that he didn't like her.
4 sources. The Balco judge has already jailed people for flouting her orders and procedures.
Well, it's out. Looks like he's glad.
A relaxed ARod is a hammerin' ARod.
That's what's important to me.

To get an idea why ARod may not have wanted to talk to roberts, or take her accusations seriously, go to Google and type in
"Selena Roberts, Duke"

Yeah, I'm really hoping this just kills the "image" of A-Rod. When he's less concerned about how he looks, he's a better player. Hopefully, this will eliminate his concern about image, and allow him to focus on baseball.
