It’s all A-Rod’s fault that a tribute to Ken Griffey Jr. article got ruined!
You want to know what’s so completely messed up about PEDs in sports?
Alex Rodriguez passed Stan Musial on baseball’s all-time RBI list over the weekend.
A-Rod – a phony of monstrous proportions – has no business surpassing Musial in anything. It makes me ill. It bothers me that a man who is currently appealing a 211-game suspension for his role in the Biogenesis scandal, could under the cover of due process, be allowed to pass any of the game’s greatest names. A-Rod doesn’t deserve to be climbing up the record books, passing bigger, better, more deserving names. He doesn’t deserve to be in the same conversation with Musial, much less passing him on any historical list of achievements.
And yet, here he is doing just that. He is a scofflaw, with a figurative boot on his wheel, mocking baseball history. We know it’s not legitimate. We know that he has just scrawled all sorts of graffiti on the record books, and we don’t have anything to clean up the mess other than with our own conscience.
A-Rod is everything that is wrong with this. Seeing a headline that puts him in the same sentence with Stan Musial or Willie Mays or Mickey Mantle or Frank Robinson is something that makes my head spin, my stomach growl and my conscience ache.
