Alex Rodriguez “The Clean One” Alex Rodriguez is a Major League Baseball player. He has played twenty seasons in the MIL and has played for the New York Yankees, the Texas Rangers, and Seattle Mariners. He has set a path of making records big and small. Many speculate that he would break the home run record and then some. His reputation is that he will be the one who breaks all the records without using any kind of performance enhancing drugs (Peed). Last year he was loosely accused of using performance enhancing drugs with the Texas Rangers, but it was never proven or followed up on.
Ever since the home run record was broken by Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez has been looked on as his successor. This has been a difficult reputation for him to live up to. Once Barry Bonds broke the home run record with 762 long balls, he was instantly accused of using performance enhancing drugs. But he was never officially convicted of using them. All the eyes of baseball turned to Alex Rodriguez to break the home run record with no use of performance enhancing drugs. He has recently been accused of using performance enhancing drugs for the second time.
He is now sighting a suspension by Major League Baseball. Many people around the world did not like Alex Rodriguez or the New York Yankees before these allegations. Now this is Just another reason for the world of sports to hate on him and his team. This past week the New York Yankees played the Boston Red Sox. Whenever Alex Rodriguez made a play or was batting the entire crowd would boo him and the Yankees. The only time they cheered was when Alex Rodriguez got hit by a pitch. The loyal Yankees fans were the only people that cheered for him.
When Alex Rodriguez was put on the pedestal to break the home run record he as also put on the watch for using performance enhancing drugs. He has always been disliked by many people in world of baseball; but has always been admired for the fact that he was doing it “the clean way’. Recently Major League Baseball had done some research and found substantial evidence showing that Alex Rodriguez most likely used performance enhancing drugs. He is still fighting the allegations and presently plays for the New York Yankees. The fabulous reality that he was supposed to be the man who accomplished the home run record clean turns out to be a farce.
The evidence is pretty clear that he was using performance enhancing drugs. This is very disappointing news, the last man to break the record was accused of using performance enhancing drugs and now his supposed successor has also. Major League Baseball has now become known as the cheaters game. Unfortunately, when a “clean player” breaks a record people will instantly become skeptical. This is very sad for baseball! The reality of a “clean player” reaching a prestigious record is becoming less and less obtainable due to the inequalities of performance enhancing drugs. By astrology 7
