Swarovski Jewelry MLB’s Alex Rodriguez suspended

MLB’s Alex Rodriguez suspended 1 year for steroids use

Cry me a river. If A Rod was a football or tennis player in Europe he would NEVER get caught, never serve 1 day of a ban and anyone who dared suggest he was anything but legit would end up in court and more than likely receive death threats, the latter, even if he had in fact been given a short ban for missing drugs tests.

On the off chance that blood bags of his were discovered in a lab, they would be destroyed to protect his integrity, and the governing body of his sport would act as if the incident never happened.

One of the curious things about the A Fraud case is the low octane stuff he was using. Where is the serious AAS? Testosterone as an energy booster before a game? A Hole went down for stuff that is just a couple of steps above ghetto doping.

There is a Landis parallel as well. A Roid was paying Bosch $12K a month but only offered $20K/month plus $150K for Bosch to spend time outside the country while the investigation was ongoing. He should have upped those figures by a m Swarovski Jewelry agnitude. He made $350M during his career but was too cheap to spend a couple of mil keep quiet someone who could bring him down.

Also, note to others. Before getting involved with doping, make sure your name or nickname cannot be twisted into jokes about your doping.

Baseball strikes me as one of those odd sports. A large lump of its casual fan base seem to not care too much about the competition at all, just the spectacle. Bt like WWE. The season of mcguire/sosa, it actually seemed like the HR chase was MORE important than the actual, you know, league.

As one of the rare lesser spotted Irish cricket fans, baseball is just pumped up rounders to me leaves me cold. Following cycling is enough drug addled sports, thanks all the same. I’ll stick to my nice corrupt match fixed cricket!

Martin just like you in Ireland and me in Canada, I do not pretend to understand cricket. However I did grow up with baseball and the large lump of its casual fan base care a whole lot about doping in baseball. When Rodriguez appeared in games late in last season he was roundly booed in every North American ballpark he played in (30 of them, seating about 70,000 fans per stadium). So was Bonds, Sosa and Mark McGwire during the single season home run record heyday.

Bonds, Sosa, McGwire and Rodriguez will never get into the baseball Hall of Fame although on their records they should. That is how deep seated is the resentment against them among fans, sportscasters and clean players.

Baseball is hardly scripted like wrestling and the comparison as to the two as spectacle is badly misplaced. It is sort of like saying drinking in Ireland has no substance to it and is not serious business.

Major League Baseball now has the toughest drug testing for any organized non Olympic professional sport in the world, better than football (European) and maybe even cycling and the La Ti Da Cricket League. Cricket seems about as exciting as watching a sack of wet fish!

Baseball isn’t an endurance sport. You also don’t need to be on a bodybuilding regimen to get through a 9 inning game, of which there is only 10 15 minutes of actual running around.

Baseball is the only sport where a pitcher can spend 3 months on the disabled list for pulling a hamstring muscle covering first base while fielding an out. The major strain is having to spend so many hours before and after the game sitting around.

So not much is Swarovski Jewelry required when you don’t really have to be in shape (pitcher Bartolo Colon comes to mind) to play the game. You just need to have a quick and powerful swing at the plate, something that diminishes over time.

He probably thought he was never going to come back from Colombia alive. Besides, with guys like Bosch, it’s not the money. According to various sources, he lived beyond his means and was broke when he fessed up.

As for A Rod being cheap, once you begin paying big money to keep someone quiet, someone who doesn’t know how to live within his means, it’s easier and much less expensive to have him visit Colombia where for the US equivalent of between $60 100 US dollars you can “mandarle el moto” and boom, problem solved.

By the way, what is “ghetto doping”?
