AS MUCH AS I’D LOVE TO GLOAT, I JUST CAN’T

I should be enjoying some good old fashion schadenfreude over the A-Rod on ‘Roids story that broke this morning as it has all the elements that brings out the viciousness in me. There is Alex Rodriguez the biggest self-centered phony to hit this town in a long time, then there is Gene Orza who allegedly tip off Rodriguez that the piss cops were heading to his home which enhances Orza’ rep as a scummy weasel and then of course there are the New York Highlanders who can’t get enough bad news to satisfy my hate but there are a couple of things that keep me from dancing like an extra in Riverdance.

What this outing of Alex Rodriguez does is justify the village idiot, Jose Canseco as the voice of truth. Even though, he will forever be a rat bastard and a no good snitch, one thing he’s not is a liar. Everything he wrote in his two books (let that swirl around your head for a moment, Jose Canseco writing 2 books) has come out to be true. Canseco may be an idiot but he is an idiot savant when it comes to performance enhancing drugs and the ball players that use them.

The other reason that I take no joy in this news is it hurts baseball. For reasons I can’t explain, baseball is held to a higher standard than other sports.NFL players wind up on the police blotter weekly, NBA players produce more out of wedlock kids than that nutty woman in California hell, even Olympic swimmers hitting the chronic don’t face the scorn of baseball players who take PED’s.

A week before spring training starts I don’t want to hear about PED’s I want to hear about rookie phenoms and vets coming into camp healthy and fans thinking we have a chance for a big season and looking forward to summer and enjoying ourselves in our new home  ball park but no we can’t because of more fallout from drug use that happened six years ago. It takes all the fun out of being a hater.

  1. I agree that I don’t get a charge out of it. Andy the Pastor was much more fun.

    Also, knowing the Yankees have a guy at third who always wanted to be a Met makes me smile. He’s our great little jewel in the Bronx.

    It’s bad for baseball that he’s caught and on top of it anyone who thinks the guy hasn’t been on HGH since then to avoid detection has their head in the sand.

    I guess it is what it is. I just hope they never discover Mikey…

  2. Alex Roidriguez should be held responsible for Global Warming:

    All his talk is cheap and full of hot air.

  3. Haha, i had to comment on the last comment…classic!

    A-Roid is a fraud and he deserves everything coming to him. He was too good to be true.

    Baseball is the national pastime and it should be held to a higher standard than other sports. I for one dont want the jerks from NFL/NBA playing this sport.
