(Photo By Kelvin Ma)Credit WEEI.com's Rob Bradford for bringing the subject up to David Ortiz. For a long time it has been the 'elephant in the room' that nobody wants to face (or, if you're Alex Rodriguez, the pink elephant in the room). In 2009, it was revealed that Ortiz appeared on a list of players who tested positive to PEDs. The test in question was MLB's "anonymous", non-binding survey in 2003. To this day, what he was placed on the list for has never been revealed. Ortiz told Bradford that "numerous attempts" to get to the bottom of the issue have turned up nothing. Said Papi, "No. Nobody. Not MLB. Not the Players Association. Nobody. They just threw it out there that I tested positive on this one list and that was it...Nothing. So I have to deal with that, and your mind is all over the place. And I’ve lived with it. It is something that is still in the dark because nobody ever had the [guts] to come to me and say, ‘This is what ...

Alex Rodriguez blooped a single into left field in his first at-bat of the season, hours after being hit with a long suspension.
It was a nice start for the embattled slugger, but that was it. The finish belonged to the Chicago White Sox.
Rodriguez went 1 for 4 in his first game for New York, but the White Sox beat the struggling Yankees 8-1 on Monday night to snap a 10-game losing...
2:39 p.m.: If Rodriguez were to take the field in Chicago on Monday, it would be highly embarrassing for Bud Selig. The commissioner has already considered handing Rodriguez a lifetime ban, and for Rodriguez to show up on a major league field a week later would be another black eye for the game.
Rodriguez will be suspended through the end of the 2014 season effective at 3 p.m. ET...

Since the MLB hammer fell yesterday and suspended his royal highness for 211 games, we decided to do a...

MLB also came down hard on 12 other players for their involvement in the clinic, suspending Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Antonio
Well, if the White Sox were going to hit in one game this season, at least it was when the whole country was paying attention.
In a game that gained national attention due to the return and appealed suspension of Alex Rodriguez, the White Sox pounded the New York Yankees 8-1 behind 14 hits, snapping a 10-game losing streak that seemed like it lasted for 50 games.
