There was some essay by Lewis Lapham that sardonically suggested legalizing all performance-enhancing drugs in baseball, because since the rest of American culture had evolved to become manufactured and staged, so why shouldn't the national pastime follow suit?

Joe: It is good to see that someone is finally asking whether the MLBPA should be held responsible for allowing their players to be outed like this.

In late 2002, I worked for an agent and one of our clients asked us to get more information about the upcoming drug testing. Gene Orza was incredibly condescending in explaining to us that a positive test could never be used against a player because no personally identifying information would be kept. Guess that didn't work out for ARod or anyone else. The MLBPA's high-priced lawyers should have known this information could not be kept confidential if subject to a government inquiry.

I share this story because I think the players must take a long, hard look at the leadership of its union. The players have not been helped at all by the union on this issue. In fact the MLBPA's arrogance has continually put the players in a horrible position as it relates to the whole PED issue.

Here's what I know: With or without steroids, Alex Rodriguez and Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were three of the greatest players in baseball history. They competed at a time when a good number of players opposing them were also using steroids, and they were still by far the best.

One thing I love is about the coverage is that there is anachronistic anti-revisionism going on... ie, in Stark's article:

"He was the one man on the planet with the chance to resuscitate the greatest record in sports. He was the one man on the planet with the chance to rebuild his sport's sacred bridge to the glory days. And now he'll never get that back, no matter how many more home run trots he makes."

In 2003 Bonds had 613 HRs...

There's also this naive undertone that A-Rod began juicing in 2003... c'mon now!

but people experience fandom in different ways. i care fuck all for "the history of baseball" but some people love that shit and alltime records and whatnot; those people probably care about steroids. i like baseball on a micro level and think there is (or should be) an essential honesty in the pitcher/batter matchup so yeah i care a bit about steroids.

They have a testing system and penalties now (as flawed as they are, ie, guys are using undetectable stuff and will whenever they can). A "violation" at a time when there were NO PENALTIES is not one you can apply the "Hall of Fame ban" to, and remain reasonable.

morbs, that's exactly right. however, i could really give a rat's ass about the hall of fame. it's just annoying to me to think that when a batter faces a pitcher, that batter may (without anyone's knowledge) be taking substances that make it more likely for his fly ball to become a home run than had he not been taking those substances.

On accusations of A-Rod using roids in high school:

“There’s no way,” Dodgers utilityman Doug Mientkiewiczsaid. “I was with him too much, I was with him for too long. Our team was together, like, 20 hours of the day. Every day. Even Sundays. And holidays. I spent like all of Christmas day with Alex one time. We went to the movies that day. Saw Forrest Gump. Didn't like it. Plus we took showers together. We slept in hammocks together. I saw every inch of Alex's body back then and I am a pretty observant guy. I think I would have noticed needle marks on his firm buttocks or rock hard biceps. Or testicular shrinkage. Naw he was clean back then. I'm sure of it. Positive.”

Alex Rodriguez was an insecure prima donna who made a clubhouse attendant load his toothbrush with toothpaste after every game in his three seasons with the Texas Rangers, a new book charges. The Rangers were also required to send a basket of food to the controversial All-Star's hotel suite during road trips, Sports Illustrated columnist Selena Roberts reports in "A-Rod." Many Texas teammates kept their distance from A-Rod, who they saw as a spoiled superstar. His relationship with other players didn't improve when Rodriguez joined the Yankees in 2004. His Bomber teammates regarded A-Rod as a phony and a hypocrite because he tried to project an All-American public image while pursuing a swinger's lifestyle. During a series in Texas, Roberts writes, A-Rod went to a sex club while his wife, Cynthia, pregnant with their first child, was at home in New York. Rodriguez also turned off teammates by bragging about wild nights with strippers - and by making clumsy passes at other players' wives and girlfriends.

Hey did you guys hear that A-Rod sez he's going to write a book about Selena Roberts in response. It's called "S-Rob". Apparently she's not well like by her fellow Sports Illustrated writers. Also she blows her nose really loudly. Talks with food in her mouth. Makes Sports Illustrated staffers bring her coffee in the morning.

"Roberts was hated by the New York Times photographer who took her bio picture. "She kept trying to move the lights around and she kept mispronouncing my name on purpose," said Fred Conrad later, "she was won of the hardest people I've ever had to deal with. The green blouse she ended up wearing well that was like the fifteenth one she tried on and after every change she had to do another string of makeup applications to make sure 'that her complexion matched'." Conrad claimed the craziest part was that end of shoot she gave him her card and whispered that he should call him."

Less than a year ago, people were not merely speculating how many career home runs he would hit (800? 850? 900? 950?), but also how his name atop the all-time list would return Aaron-esque decency to a record book poisoned by Bonds' regrettable presence. Rodriguez was the Brad Pitt of baseball -- the pretty boy with chops who could carry a big-budget adventure through the summer.

Now, with the latest revelations, the comparison to Pitt seems ludicrous. Instead, Rodriguez brings to mind a slightly different fabled theatrical figure -- one who, 20 years ago, took America by storm. At the time, we fell in love with Spuds MacKenzie because the bull terrier brought spark and pizzazz to the otherwise mundane world of beer advertising. He was cute and funny and talented and engrossing.

Then, we learned the truth. Spuds, a lady-killer in ads, was actually a girl. Her real name was Honey Tree Evil Eye, and she didn't even like beer.

Turns out, ol' Spuds MacKenzie was nothing special after all.

Just another dog.

A-Rod went 0-for-4 Saturday - but he made it to first base anyway.

The randy Yankees slugger and stunning actress Kate Hudson put on a very public display of affection for the first time, locking lips during the team's annual family picnic.

Hudson, 33, was also spotted giving Rodriguez a big squeeze as the lovestruck pair canoodled following the Bombers' loss to the Oakland A's.

A-Rod's focus wasn't just on his flaming hot new gal pal. The Yankees star also spent time playing with daughters Ella, 1, and Natasha, 4, who were dressed in their Yankees best.

Notably absent from the family fest was A-Rod's ex-wife, Cynthia Rodriguez, whom he divorced last fall.

The very public smooching puts to rest rumors that Rodriguez, 33, and Hudson are just close friends.
Hudson, the daughter of Goldie Hawn, is believed to have met A-Rod last November in Miami.

Since then, she has been spotted slipping into Rodriguez's swanky midtown pad and cheering him on from the front row at several Yankees games.

The couple was first photographed together two weeks ago in Beverly Hills.

In recent years, A-Rod's exploits off the field have garnered as much attention as his slugging.

His rumored conquests include Madonna and a Las Vegas stripper, with whom he was photographed in a Toronto hotel two years ago while he was still married.
