sports illustrated reporter selena roberts has written a bombshell of a book detailing alex rodriguez’ life before and after becoming a yankee. in the book entitled ‘a-rod: the many lives of alex rodriguez’, roberts reveals that the slugger may have started taking steroids as early as his high school days in florida and that he has taken hgh after signing with the yankees amongst other allegations.
roberts also goes into detail about his love life and his tipping habits. she also says a-rod was dubbed ‘bitch tits’ by yankee teammates. that was after he put on 15pounds in the off-season and seemed to develop round pectorals, a condition called gynecomastia that can be caused by anabolic steroids.
a-rod is staying tight lipped on the new book, while manager joe girardi has blasted the author for ‘her unflattering portrait of the mvp slugger.’ Whether or not roberts has all her facts straight may never come to light. right now it is a he said she said mess. all we know is that alex rodriguez took performance enhancers at some point in his life. for this his career will forever be tainted and his legacy ruined, but if he can help the yankees win a world series ring the fickle fans in new york may give him a little slack.
side note: a-rod, who had hip surgery on march 9th has been rehabbing and may rejoin the team as early as this friday, may 8th, when the yankees head to baltimore.
