A-Rod and Steroids: Come On. You Can't Really Be Surprised, Can You?

Jersey Al BraccoSenior Analyst IFebruary 7, 2009

So A-Rod (A-Fraud) tested positive for steroids in 2003. What a shock. You mean he didn't get so thick by doing thousands of reps at the gym every day? You mean he didn't just change his diet and start eating more protein? You mean he didn't get his tiny head transplanted on someone else's body?

WAKE UP PEOPLE!  For years, I've winced whenever I heard blind Yankee fans say "At least A-Rod has done it the right way, not like Bonds." Don't get me wrong, I'm a lifelong Yankee fan, but I'm not BLIND.

Have you not noticed how he seems to have lost any fluidity in his movements since he's been with the Yankees? Haven't seen the robotic-like fielding plays? The sudden inability to throw the ball accurately to first base?

These are all things that happen when you are too muscle bound from steroid use. (See Jason Giambi, if you need another example).

Sorry Yankee fans, but A-Fraud has done nothing but bring the Yankees down since he has arrived. Hopefully all the talent they bought this winter can overcome him, but I, for one, believe the Curse of the Bambino has been transferred back to the Yankees when they beat out Boston to get A-Rod. We now have "The Curse of A-Rod" See my article about this.
