Terrific breakdown of the entire Alex Rodriguez case in today’s New York Times.

The story is full of great details — the kind of stuff you expect from the Times — and a few new nuggets, including the assertion that Rodriguez tested positive for a banned stimulant in 2006, a fact never released because a player had to test positive twice before being punished.

Beyond the minor bit of news from seven years ago, the Times piece really serves as a great look into the details of the case and the investigation and the ugliness on every side of this fight. Highly recommended.
