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

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
