A-Rod: The Many Affairs and Blunders of Alex Rodriguez
|05.20.09 at 1:11 pm ET|
Selena Roberts, currently of A-Rod/steroids fame, joined WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan this morning to discuss her controversial book, A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez.
During the discussion she noted that one of Rodriguez’ more admirable qualities is the fact that he is a “man who wants to be loved.” Rumor has it Kate Hudson is doing what she can to satisfy said need.
How does Madonna feel about this? And if Rodriguez is really after the love Roberts claims he is seeking, he sure wasn’t getting it from the Fenway Faithful following this 2007 report in the Post.
Affairs aside, it isn’t just what he does on his own time that has stained A-Rod’s character. Even before word of his positive test, the three-time MVP’s sportsmanship was questionable at best. Given Rodriguez’ track record, I would direct you to the nearest Barnes and Noble for the full documentation, but here’s a couple of the classics.
Remember May 30, 2007?
Anyone out there believe he said “ha?”
(For what it’s worth, this incident happened the same day that the previously-referenced “Stray-Rod” story ran in the Post. Tough day, huh?)
Meanwhile, some people are still making money off his famous Game 6 ball-slap.
As for this season, one could argue that from a psychological standpoint, the hip cyst that kept Rodriguez out until May 8th was a blessing, with potential for the PR flames to die down by the time of his return. Unfortunately for him, not even the news of Manny Ramirez’ suspension could take the spotlight off Rodriguez, who has slugged five homers in 11 games since coming off the DL. Joel Sherman just hopes he’s doing it clean in today’s Post.
A-Rod’s been in the spotlight since he was a kid. Apparently, he’s not leaving it anytime soon.
