Murray Chass: A-ROD’S HIPS AND STEROIDS

What about bacne as a basis for suspicion, Murray?

What I think we know now, though, is there is no basis for the suspicion of Rodriguez critics – and he has plenty of critics in the news media as well as among fans – that Rodriguez’s hip injuries are the result of his admitted use of steroids. ...

[D]octors who discussed the hip injury were unanimous in the view that steroids could not be considered the culprit in Rodriguez’s hip problems, even though reporters tried hard to make it seem otherwise.

No acne spotted on the MRI, then?

What about flirting with women in the stands? Can that cause hip injuries? Centaur paintings? All I know is ARod is to blame somehow because True Yankees never get injured unless it's in the interests of the team.

There is a connection between hip and steroids. Victor Conte of BALCO fame played bass guitar for the band "Tower of Power" that had a song called "What Is Hip?"

corticosteroids <> anabolic steriods

Well it's good to know that unlike SOME REPORTERS Murray Chass would never link a player to steroids on spurious claims.
