So much for the next Yankees soap opera being about Derek Jeter’s 2011 contract.
I woke up this morning, blissfully unaware of world events, and discovered an unusually high number of emails in my inbox. Had someone died? I wondered. Had the economy taken another dive? Did the octuplets lady announce she was pregnant with more children?
Then I actually read the emails. Some of them were from my new “friends” on Facebook (I just signed up the other day). But most were about the stories in the tabs about A-Rod testing positive for steroids in ’03.
No one is commenting so far. Not A-Rod. Not Cashman. Not Selig. And not Gene Orza of the players’ union.
So I’ll take a breath and simply say, “Who freakin’ needs this?”
The other thing I’ll say is: “Why, Alex? You’re too talented for that crap! Besides, you didn’t have the telltale acne and your head never grew to the size of a casaba melon and you didn’t fly into ‘roid rages. Or did you?”
And finally, before I throw myself and this computer into the Pacific Ocean, I’ll point out, “If 104 players tested positive, who are the other 103? And why is A-Rod the only person whose name was leaked? Who are the others? I want to know. Now.”
