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

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
