A-Rod is done.
Done as in suspended? Done as a New York Yankee? Done as a major leaguer?
The answers to each of those questions might be "yes," but we don't know any of that for certain.
When I say, "done," I'm talking about Alex Rodriguez's reputation. His attempt to rehabilitate his once-pristine image. And, of course, his chances of making the Hall of Fame.
Rodriguez, 37, first jeopardized all of that in 2009 when he admitted using performance-enhancing drugs in response to a Sports Illustrated report that said he had tested positive six years earlier. But he said then that he only used PEDs in a specific period from '01 to '03 -- before he joined the Yankees, before baseball enacted steroid testing.
An explosive report in the Miami New Times on Tuesday suggests otherwise, indicating that Rodriguez also used from '09 -- the year the Yankees last won the World Series -- through last season.
