A-Rod called Selena Roberts to apologize for the things he said during the ESPN interview with Peter Gammons. That was nice of him. Haha. He supposedly called her last Wednesday, but she wouldn’t comment until he held his news conference down in Tampa on Tuesday.

Rodriguez said Roberts was “trying to throw things out there that in high school I tried steroids. I mean, that’s the biggest bunch of baloney I’ve ever heard in my life” and that “this lady is coming out with all these allegations, all these lies.”

Rodriguez had also accused her of “stalking” him and of trying to break into his Florida home. A Miami Beach Police spokesman said Roberts did not try to break into Rodriguez’s home.

“The allegations made by Alex Rodriguez are absurd,” Roberts told the MLB Network.
