A-Rod Book

7 posts in this topic

anyone hear about the new A-Rod book said he has been using something since he was in high school, and he was using while in New York as well.

It makes sense. Most of the time you can see the guy really bulk up over his career like Bonds or McGuire and that really raises a red flag. However if A-Rod was juicing back in high school most of us wouldn't know what the un-juiced verson of him would look like, we would just assume he's always been that size.

I can't imagine the pressure atheletes must feel when they know they have a shot at the big leagues and they want to do everything they can to make the dream come true. I bet alot of younger/minor leaguers used the stuff in hopes of gaining that extra little edge that woudl help them realize the dream and in turn cash in big time.

However I also can't imagine using the stuff knowing full well what it does to your body and knowing the future repercussions it can and likely will have.

I pretty much assume that any good player from the 90's probably juiced at somepoint in his career.

At this point the only thing that would shock me is if it comes out that Jason Tyner has been juicing his entire career. His one career homerun would be a sham and should be stricken from the record books.

Probably what gave him the yips in NY. Not sure how a guy can get so screwed up in the head that prevents him from being able to make a routine throw from 2nd to 1st.

i still never got why he would want to go to NY, everyone hates you, if you play for new york and dont win everyone hates you, if you play against a team they hate you because you are from New York. how is this a win win? Yea he has a ton of money but could have made pretty close to that most places

Some people love the attention. Good or bad its still attention plus I'm sure he's making more in NY then he could on any other team.

Give A-Fraud a little time and he'll start throwing others under the bus to get the spot light off him, heck he could probably co-write a book with Canseco called I came up, I shot up and I sold out

    • Been out on a few solo adventures lately. Finding some slab crappies mostly. Got into a mix of gills and slabs today! Fish have been hit and miss this ice season locally but if your willing to put the work in you can find em. Finding fish in that 20-30 fow area depending on the weather. Crappies range from 12-14" and the gill is 10". Most fish caught on plastic baits, a few on waxies. It's been a blast lately! Hopefully my luck keeps up! Have a look!! 
    • Very good-think for yourself.  Trust-to a degree-your gut.  Hemingway always bragged about his buhlsnick sniffer and most of the press people in my life have had excellent  sniffers. But you HAVE to believe in some media efforts simply because there is no value to them of lying about some things and frankly I doubt that many do with any regularity. As far as you 'why I have no idea" regarding political parties and those "invested" in them it is because they BELIEVE certain causes or philosophy's are what they agree with.  Nothing wrong with that. Communists fervently believe (or did) that their way was the best.  Libertarians the same and of course Republicans and Democrats espouse the basic beliefs of their party. There is nothing wrong with any of the PARTIES.....it is the PEOPLE who end up at the top of them. I have learned that one of the reasons for that is simple:   too many truly good and decent people pf talent and ability cannot bring themselves to run for office. It has become degrading and the reason is simple.....because the public trashes and bashes all politicians as "corrupt" and the politicians who ARE corrupt deter others from seeking office. We have some pretty sleazy people running this country and it is sad. No,   I do not know the answer. It is too late.
    • The great part is he doesn't own a house yet down here so if the plan is in-home daycare, he can look for a house that will suit his needs.   One thing I would do different if I were going to up and move but I had to stay around the metro area, I would move to the far north suburbs instead of the far south suburbs where I am now. I hate having to go through the cities in order to go up north for the weekend camping or fishing.
    • You should make us all some ribs so we can taste it. 
    • I like a lot of the new Shell's flavors that they have now but I got burnt out on regular Shell's back in college because I had 3 roommates that were all from New Ulm and they could buy returnable bottle cases really cheap. How ever many cases could stack in our apartment from floor to ceiling is how many we would go through each week.
    • The drawer rails you just want ones with "detent" on them. I think ours are set to 10lbs.   Here are pics for the doors.
    • You might want to try, if you haven't already, the app WAZE on your phone.   real time traffic and suggested alternative routes.  
    • I had a guy do that also on Sat in N.D. Pulled in with a Ford F350 and a big Ice Castle and started his  2000 watt All-Pro generator and set it in front of his pickup about 40 ft and went and got in his house. I went and asked him if he want to plug into my Honda 2000 so I didnt have to listen to its all afternoon.   But when I left we picked up and got everything ready. He never came out and I could see him looking out the window so I just unplugged his cord and picked up my generator and left. Never came out to thank me. But the guy next to me thanked me so he wouldnt have to listen to it.
    • Agree on both Stall & Stewart as huge bonuses....but I'm not going to give Fletch credit...it's all on those 2 players that they resurrected their game with new found youth.  It was a "wing & a prayer" from Fletch's standpoint....he had to do something, threw his darts on the wall and they stuck at Stall and Stewart and fortunately for Fletch it has worked out...and both were cheap signings....
