So it turns out that A-Rod was treated by Dr. Galea of HGH fame (here). Supposedly he only prescribed anti-inflammatories, but that's according to a guy who tried to have one of his assistants sneak HGH into the country. The Yankees had previously distanced themselves from Dr. Galea, claiming that he had not been authorized by them to treat Rodriguez post-hip surgery. At first it seemed that the only link between A-Rod and Galea was A-Rod's post-op chiropractor, Mark Lindsay (I may have misspelled that). Now Galea is claiming that he indeed treated A-Rod after his hip surgery. If it comes out that A-Rod used HGH "to get healthy" after having surgery, that may be the end of any love affair Yankee fans will have ever had with him. I don't want to jump to that conclusion, but this just got messy.
