I don't blame Selena Roberts for what she is doing to Alex Rodriguez. Being in position to land possibly the biggest story of the year independently is not something many of us would give up. However, as more of her book gets into the media, her once professional reputation is starting to drop as fast as A-Rod's.

Anything that has to do with steroids directly, in my opinion, is still fair game. If she's discovered that Rodriguez actually did steroids in high school and/or during his tenure with the Yankees, I believe it's something at least viable to get in the open. 

Now hearing more about Rodriguez's sex life and how his teammates do not like him is not news. There are many many players in ALL sports who go to clubs and who aren't very good teammates. 

And now hearing that Rodriguez demanded a ready and able toothbrush after every game? Roberts is seriously getting into fourth grade material. 

I am a die hard Yankees fan and I wouldn't wish this woman on Curt Schilling or Jonathon Papelbon. Next she will let us know that Rodriguez kicks puppies in his spare time when not making kids in hospitals cry.

Selena needs to remember how she gained such a positive reputation and go back to that. These Hollywood tabloids have no place on ESPN every night.
