Alex Rodriguez hit a home run today in his first spring training game, but left the game with his cousin, the same cousin he admitted to doing steroids with from 2001-2003. Blood may be thicker than water, but A-Rod should know better.
Rodriguez has asked for forgiveness. He has admitted to being "young and stupid." This now makes him old and stupid. Why would he want to be seen with a person that associates him further to steroids? For a person who cares so much about his image, it doesn't seem like a smart decision to keep it in tact.
In order for A-Rod to free himself of this controversy, if ever possible, he needs to free himself from the people who are associated.
A-Rod showed today that he is the absolute attention grabber that everybody perceives him to be. Whether or not he wants to be he brings it upon himself. Madonna, the girl in Toronto, and now his cousin.
A-Rod, get a clue.
