Three Cheers for A-Rod...
With the year Alex Rodriquez is having, you could almost feel sorry for the guy... Almost. Regardless of how much time he spends on the disabled list due to the torn labrum in his right hip, he's still going to collect $32 million and be baseball's highest paid player in 2009.
Nice work, if you can get it.
Here's a thought for Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig: Since Rodriquez may have a lot of time on his hands over the next few months, how about being proactive and sending him a list of banned "healing supplements" now, so a year from now we won't have to hear "I'm guilty for a lot of things. I'm guilty for being negligent, naive, not asking all the right questions. And to be quite honest, I don't know exactly what substance I was guilty of using" all over again.
One thing A-Rod definitely wasn't "negligent, naive," and guilty of "not asking all the right questions" about? The 10-year contract he signed with the New York Yankees last season, in which he's owed $275 million dollars, total, through the 2017 season.
At least we know how he got injured... He was trying to stuff his wallet into his back pocket.
