Alex Rodriguez Tested "Postive" For Steroids In 2003

According to Sports Illustrated Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003, his last with the Texas Rangers. SI.com is reporting that they have four sources that told them Alex tested positive for two anabolic steroids.

From SportsIllustrated.com:

In 2003, when he won the American League home run title and the AL Most Valuable Player award as a shortstop for the Texas Rangers, Alex Rodriguez tested positive for two anabolic steroids, four sources have independently told Sports Illustrated.

Rodriguez's name appears on a list of 104 players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball's '03 survey testing, SI's sources say. As part of a joint agreement with the MLB Players Association, the testing was conducted to determine if it was necessary to impose mandatory random drug testing across the major leagues in 2004.

When approached by an SI reporter on Thursday at a gym in Miami, Rodriguez declined to discuss his 2003 test results. "You'll have to talk to the union," said Rodriguez, the Yankees' third baseman since his trade to New York in February 2004. When asked if there was an explanation for his positive test, he said, "I'm not saying anything."


Well I JUST wrote how everyone should leave A-Rod alone. That didn't last too long did it? Let's see how far this story goes, I'm sure it will take a life of it's own because....well it's Alex Rodriguez. I find this hard to believe because Alex has been so consistent throughout his entire career. We'll have more as this story unfolds.
