Found February 01, 2013 on Lady Loves Pinstripes:
Undoubtedly, New York Yankees Alex Rodriguez has not always made the best off the field decisions. English: A-Rod batting in 2007. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) He is the sports media model of consistency for always providing headline worthy news to the point where even the New York Jets are jealous. Ideally no professional sports team fantasizes about paying for a distraction so why do owners repeatedly do it? For one reason, talent and winning makes money in sports. So not matter how busy a player might keep a team’s PR department, if the team is winning they will stand behind him. Think about the likes of athletes like the NFL’s Chad Johnson, Dez Bryant, Ray Lewis and T.O. Or in baseball you have your Josh Hamilton’s; or the NBA’s Rajan Rondo, all uber-talented pain in the behinds. And some organizations’ will go as far as hiring personal babysitters, handle multiple paternity lawsuits or get private security details etc. just to keep this type of talent in check as long as the team ...

Report: Alex Rodriguez Has ‘No Plans’ to Retire, Focused on Rehabbing Hip

Alex Rodriguez is showing plenty of perseverance. Or maybe he just really likes money. Either way, we shouldn’t be so quick to write off A-Rod’s career. Rodriguez has “no plans” to retire from baseball, according to the New York Daily News. Rodriguez had hip surgery earlier this offseason and was already expected to miss a big chunk of 2013, but his future became even cloudier...

Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez injected by clinic operator

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was injected with performance-enhancing drugs as recently as last spring by Anthony Bosch, operator of the now-infamous Biogenesis of America clinic in south Florida, according to an “Outside the Lines” report. The texts, the source said, usually came late at night, telling Anthony Bosch to come to the house. Bosch would...

Yankees rumors: Voiding Alex Rodriguez’s contract unrealistic?

There has been speculation that the New York Yankees will attempt to void third baseman Alex Rodriguez’s remaining contract due to use of performance-enhancing drugs and his hip injury. However, the team knows there is little chance of voiding Rodriguez’s contract, an act termed “unrealistic” by David Waldstein of The New York Times. The Yankees can dream of getting...

Alex Rodriguez Personally Injected By Bosch With PEDs

The disturbing allegations of PED usage are just getting worse and more detailed for Alex Rodriguez. By now this story has been covered by almost every angle and in most cases it feels like we are in a space-time continuum that has warped us back to 2005. At this point fans of Alex Rodriguez and the Yankees don’t need to hear an apology, they don’t need to hear agents or PR...

More Disappointment for MLB: Anthony Bosch Reportedly Injected Alex Rodriguez With PEDs

The news just gets more and more disappointing for baseball fans. We recently learned of a big doping lab in Miami, Florida. Today, a report from ESPN says that Biogenesis boss Anthony Bosch personally injected Alex Rodriguez with performance-enhancing drugs. According to the report, Rodriguez got personal treatment - secretive...

A-Rod's Career With the Yanks, MLB May Be in Jeopardy

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is unlikely to play for the Yankees this season and possibly beyond, according to the New York Daily News. No matter what happens with Rodriguez's new steroid allegations, the Yankees may just cut ties with the beleaguered third baseman. According to numerous sources, A-Rod's hip injury could derail his career and could limit...

A-Rod = cheating, lying

I feel pretty bad for Natasha and Ella Rodriguez these days.   The daughters of Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez probably don’t know much about what’s going on with dear ol’ dad. Good thing, too. Imagine what lessons they’d be learning if they were still living with him:   “Now girls, it’s OK to cheat, especially [...]

Alex Rodriguez Accused Of Not Cheating Well

On Tuesday, the Miami New Times reported that Alex Rodriguez had been receiving performance enhancing drugs from a wellness clinic in Miami, Florida. This really blows if you are a New York Yankee fan because that means you have to defend the Yankees’ 2009 World Series championship against people that will say it was tainted. It also blows because A-Rod has definitely not been...

A-Rod reportedly received injections from Anthony Bosch

Alex Rodriguez is denying allegations that he received performance-enhancing drugs from Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis company, but the evidence against him is mounting. On Tuesday, the Miami New Times reported that A-Rod was one of many MLB players who ordered performance-enhancing drugs (in many cases testosterone) from the now-defunct Biogenesis company. Their report was based on...

Understanding the Business of Baseball: Insurance on Player Contracts

The business of baseball is a lot tougher to grasp than the dynamics of “on-the-field” play. As fans, we look at the end result of every decision made. Did he sign? Who did we trade? When was he drafted? Rarely do we get to see what happens behind closed doors. Recently, the injury of Alex Rodriguez has brought about questions regarding the insurance of a player’s contract...

The Best Move The Red Sox Never Made: A-Rod

A-Rod Faces Media I don’t spend much time defending the New York Yankees. As a Boston Red Sox fan, I readily yell “Yankees S***!” at Fenway Park. I think the Yankee organization is actually evil incarnate: that those who wear pinstripes to play baseball are inherently the devils of the diamond. I think that Aaron Boone has an unmentionable middle name, and that Johnny Damon...

Team USA Full of Talent and Inspiration, Prepares for Deaf Olympics (Video)

With the latest sports news focusing on the Alex Rodriguez and Lance Armstrong scandals, it is refreshing to hear of a group of local hockey players who share an inspiring story. While most of us tend to take for granted the sounds of hockey, the men of Team USA preparing to play in this April’s Deaf Olympic Games, have developed their own ways to succeed. Some of New England...

Travis Hafner Will Be the Latest Vet to Revive Career With The Yankees

So is anyone sick of talking about Alex Rodriguez yet? Since the answer to that question is probably yes, here is some more Yankee news that should interest fans.  On Thursday, the Yankees and former Cleveland Indian Travis Hafner agreed to a one year deal worth about $2 million which could turn to $4 million based on plate appearances.  Hafner is expected to fill the role that...
