Okay, I would like to preface everything I am about to say with this: “I hate Alex Rodriguez!”
Major League Baseball, in their attempt to ruin the career of A-Rod,has leaked out details of an ongoing investigation while they gain “more information.”
MLB would like the public to believe that A-Rod has taken PED’s, interfered with their investigation, and killed the pope. All of this has been leaked out to the public without any tangible evidence to support their claim. Winning the court of public opinion does not make one right.
In fact, if you believe A-Rod; which I don’t... he thinks that he will beat this rap.
I don’t totally blame Ryan Braun for this mess, but it is so hard not to feel as though this pussy could have stood up for himself and not just taken a deal from MLB without consulting the MLBPA. The truth is; Braun took the deal because his team is in the cellar this season and wanted to hit the beach a little early. Ryan Braun is a horrible union member; the Teamsters would beat this idiot’s face in.
The real entity to blame is MLB. They think they can use this “Patriot Act Clause”(AKA the "Integrity of the Game Clause), which allows Bud Selig to take away peoples livelihoods for barely a reason at all. The intent of MLB is to let the New York Yankees off the hook for overpaying a steroid ridden has been. Sorry, Yankees... NOT ON THE DIP'S WATCH!
If A-r+Rod is found to have used PED’s, even though he has never failed a test, even though he admitted to using a supplement that wasn't even being tested at the time he used it, then I feel that he should at maximum get a 50 game suspension. I don’t even believe that just being linked to wrong doing should take away what is basically $9 million out of a guy’s pocket. Steroids are what turned baseball around and made all of the owners and Bud Selig rich. So although it may be against the rules, stealing from the players and giving it back to the rich owners does not make you Robin Hood, Bud. It actually makes you a fraud. That is how you will be remembered as the biggest fraud that ever ran any major sport ever.
Want to impress the Dip? Give that forfeited money from the suspended players to Youth athletic programs for clothes, new fields, and education on the dangers of drugs, performance and otherwise.
