As A-Rod’s world turns…

Tweet [1]

[2]My mother used to watch some soap opera called As The World Turns. I have no idea what it was about, no clue whether it’s still on television and absolutely no interest in finding out. I only know that, with any soap opera type drama, it’s the first name that always pops into my head.

With that in mind, here’s what’s going on with Alex Rodriguez…

A source has told ESPN that Anthony Bosch used to personally inject Rodriguez with HGH. [3]That said, ESPN also notes that the source made reference to Bosch once having trouble finding a vein for the injection, despite the fact an HGH injection would not require a vein. Fishy? Sure. There’s absolutely nothing proven here, but it’s yet another source — and ESPN says there are “several sources” who have said Bosch used to talk about his relationship with Rodriguez — who claims to have knowledge of Rodriguez’s connection to the now infamous Miami clinic.

Rodriguez’s people, of course, say the claims are totally false.

People close to Rodiguez have also told Yahoo! Sports, and a few others, that Rodriguez has no plans of retiring or backing out of his contract [4]with the Yankees. “Alex is working diligently on his rehabilitation and looks forward to getting back on the field as soon as possible,” one source told Tim Brown.

Obviously nothing is proven at this point, it’s just another ugly chapter that’s ongoing. And probably will be ongoing for a long, long time.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
