Yankees: Omg! The latest Alex Rodriguez guilty story is absurd

If you can believe it, new drama is plaguing New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez.

This past Sunday, the New York Times reported that people involved with baseball’s anti-doping program claim that A-Rod failed a drug test for stimulants back in 2006.

Why is this the first time anyone has heard this?

If this news were true that would mean MLB gave A-Rod a bye and swept this supposed failed test under the rug for seven years.

So the New York Times is telling me that MLB broke the rules for A-Rod?

Considering all that is currently happening between A-Rod and MLB Commissioner’s Office this supposed cover up of a failed test seems unlikely.

It was public knowledge that MLB suspended Mets Yusaku Iriki, Diamondbacks Jason Grimsley and Mets Guillermo Mota for 50 games in 2006 but they let A-Rod walk.

I don’t buy that for a minute, as this would mean that MLB Commissioner’s Office would be on the hook for not punishing a player for failing a drug test, which is completely asinine.

Also, The New York Times claims it two sources “spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified while discussing drug testing results that are supposed to remain secret.”

Personally, I am so sick of “sources” spilling serious information only to hide and not stand by their own statements that hinder other people’s lives.

Looking at the bigger picture isn’t MLB concerned that they have so many employees with such big mouths?

In no other professional sport has so much classified information been leaked to the press like it has in baseball.

Bottom line is this seems like another desperate attempt by MLB to hurt A-Rod when in actuality it just stains the Commissioner Bud Selig, as his office is being more unethical then the players who failed the drug tests.

And more and more baseball fans are starting to realize how MLB is doing everything to make A-Rod it’s PED poster boy.

    I could not think let alone write at 3am so you have a right to be confused. Ponder this……

    1. Arod says he never failed a test in 20006
    2, If he did, the punishment was NO suspension, 25 games for the second.
    3. Results were confidential.

    Lots of reasons why you never heard of it!!!! Moreover, who cares?

    • Richard – 2006 was the first season 50 game suspensions were implemented for first time offenders. I gave examples in the post of three players who got suspended, publicly for failing a test. It would be impossible to keep results like this confidential considering the amount of time a player gets suspended…..it would come out. Remember how many big mouths are in MLB….they leak everything.

      A-Rod did not fail anything in 2006….maybe if the sources backed their statements up by revealing themselves it would be more believable. It sounds like more greedy people making money off A-Rod.

      And wouldn't that make this A-Rod second offense? Not allowed to play while appealing if that was the case so obviously this is false.
