Miami New Times – Open the neat spreadsheet and scroll past the listing of local developers, prominent attorneys, and personal trainers. You’ll find a lengthy list of nicknames: Mostro, Al Capone, El Cacique, Samurai, Yukon, Mohamad, Felix Cat, and D.R.
Then check out the main column, where their real names flash like an all-star roster of professional athletes with Miami ties: San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland A’s hurler Bartolo Colón, pro tennis player Wayne Odesnik, budding Cuban superstar boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz. There’s even the New York Yankees’ $275 million man himself, Alex Rodriguez, who has sworn he stopped juicing a decade ago.
It appears Alex Rodriguez is in the news once again for alleged steroid use. The New York Yankees third basemen came clean during 2009 spring training stating he did steroids until 2003 before he became a Yankee. I gave him benefit of the doubt time after time after time. Everyone was doing steroids in the 90’s (except the true Dynasty Yankees, Braves pitching staff, and Cal Ripken Jr.) and he was never a role model to me. Then he carried the Yankees in the 2009 playoffs and I was so into A-Rod..but 2010, 2011, 2012 playoffs and everything pretty much he touched turned to shit. He can’t hit a fastball anymore even if you tell him it’s coming. Guy is such a joke. Seriously, think about it. You were one of the premier faces of baseball and you take steroids to be the face of baseball history and it bit you on the ass…right were the doctor pricked you with steroids.
Get him off the Yankees. Banish him. Have him sit on the bench and when you start him, pinch hit for him with a pitcher. Humilate this sorry sack of shit.
Meanwhile..guess who is playing ball finally in Tampa. The Captain, Derek Jeter. Jete is working his ass off while A-Rod is in the headlines again. Just another reason why the baseball gods exist. If you try to be greater than them all, they will strike down on you. A-Rod you’re an embarrassment to the game.
