Alex Rodriguez desperately needs to be good at something now, because he isn’t much good at baseball anymore, even though that isn’t his fault because nothing ever is. So he has settled on two areas of possible self-improvement:
He’s not yet the kind of liar we found out Lance Armstrong, another professional litigant, turned out to be. But Rodriguez — you can’t call him A-Rod anymore, A-Rod was the guy we thought was one of the great ballplayers of all time — does become more and more like Armstrong by the minute. Or by the lawsuit.
...You have a right to think he really is a victim. And I have the right to think that the most amazing thing about those pictures we saw this week of Alex Rodriguez shaking hands with his “supporters” is that none of them counted their fingers after he shook hands with them.
Go ahead and continue to believe his version of things, continue to believe he is a victim of a witch hunt, put credence in lawsuits that are just a way to change the subject away from the evidence against him in his arbitration hearing, and his past PED use.
Then look at him for who and what he is: Baseball’s Lance Armstrong. It is more official than ever. He talks about his legacy. There it is. His Yankee contract was supposed to go through 2017. The only thing that will still be around by then are the lawsuits. Maybe he can make the Hall of Fame for those.
