Is Alex Rodriguez Telling the Truth?

Football Maniaxs@@FantasymaniaxsSenior Writer IFebruary 11, 2009

On February 7, 2009, a Sports Illustrated article by Selena Roberts and David Epstein reported that Alex Rodriguez was one of 104 players that tested positive for banned performance enhancing substances back in 2003.

On February 9, Alex Rodriguez confirmed that he had in fact used banned substances from 2001 to 2003, when he was a member of the Texas Rangers.
 
As always, I feel the necessity to disclose whether I am a very big fan of a player or if I really don’t like a player. I still try to maintain as much objectivity as I can regardless of my feelings about a player, but I think that is only fair to the reader so they understand what point of view I am looking at the story from.

Alex Rodriguez falls into the really don’t like category for me. I wasn’t a big fan of his in Seattle, I didn’t care for him in Texas, and I really don’t like him as a Yankee.
