WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW

According to 4 independent sources, Sports Illustrated is reporting that, in 2003, prior to winning the first of his 3 MVP awards and hitting 47 home runs, Alex Rodriguez tested positive for two different steroids. A-Rod was one of the 104 players who tested positive during that first round of testing, thus leading to the league’s current random drug testing process. Reportedly, Gene Orza, COO of the Players Association who is already in trouble for tipping a player off to an upcoming drug test also tipped A-Rod off to a test in 2004. The test results revealed that A-Rod had testosterone and Primobolan–a steroid that helps maintain lean muscle without adding too much bulk–in his system. Also Primobolan is preferred by many athletes because it doesn’t remain in the system as long as the Deca-Durabolin previously favored by athletes such as Jose Canseco.

WOW

WOW

WOW

WOW

I can’t decide if this is bigger than Bonds or Clemens, but it certainly ain’t good for baseball, A-Rod or the Yankees. Methinks that the best individual player in the game ever having his name involved in steroids, in any manner is damning and damaging. It’s not as though A-Rod has signed the two biggest contracts in the history of sports, or that he has millions of dollars in endorsement deals supposed to come his way. Or that he was supposed to be the savior of baseball’s home run record after Bonds tainted it up with his backne and butt needles. This is going to be a SHIT-STORM if it is true, and I don’t see why SI would have 4 independent sources that are lying to them. What’s worse, is that MLB knew that A-Rod had tested dirty and have been still holding him up as a beacon of purity. This is going to get ugly.

Also, this makes me happy because, you know, fuck A-Rod.
