The steroid scandal was a black eye and dark time for baseball....having him break the record would go far in helping us forget about it.


Jose Canseco has something to say about A-Rod being clean...he's been right so far, so I don't really know what to think. But until proven otherwise, A-Rod and Pujols are the top two clean HR guys.
And as for him getting injured, generally I differentiate my teams enough so that if any player goes down, it can hurt me. But, alas, I didn't have any first picks this year, so its 'meh' for me. (if Wright went down, who I have in 3/4 leagues, I would be concerned).


Canseco's supposed source that he introduced A-Rod to for steroids came out this week denying that he ever worked with steroids and that A-Rod was ever pro steroids. He also said that he would absolutely cooperate with federal investigators if needed. Maybe I'm naive but if hte guy wasn't guilty I don't see any logical reason why he would throw his name out there. He probably hates Canseco as much as every other living human being does.

Canseco is an idiot who wants to be in the centre of attention... that's it!

Per Canseco - he believes that ARod slept with Canseco's wife. He hates ARod, and now he says that he "introduced" ARod to a steroid guy.

It sounds like he's trying to stretch nothing into something because he hates ARod.

From what I heard on local radio(wfan), he will be a game-time decision depending on how he feels during pre-game. They also seemed to indicate that if he did sit out today, he would likely miss a couple of games similar to the Jeter situation.

Per rotoworld and the New York Daily News.

The New York Daily News reports that Alex Rodriguez (quadriceps) is unlikely to play against the White Sox on Tuesday night.
Rodriguez seems likely to miss at least a few games with the injury, which is similar to the one that caused Derek Jeter to miss six games earlier this season. "The description to me has been no different than Jeter's was. Alex is a quick healer, though, so we'll have to wait and see. We'll evaluate on a day-to-day basis and see where he's at," GM Brian Cashman said. He wouldn't rule out a trip to the disabled list. Apr. 22 - 10:21 am et

per MLB.com
CHICAGO -- Alex Rodriguez and his wife, Cynthia, celebrated the birth of a 7-pound, 2-ounce daughter in Miami late Monday night.
"We are thrilled with the birth of our second daughter and the blessing of having two beautiful, healthy daughters in our lives," Rodriguez said.

A-Rod will not be in the Yankees lineup tonight or Wednesday as he spends time with his now expanded family. He is expected to rejoin the team Thursday in Chicago.
