Unnecessarily clearing A-Rod’s name

The Big Three K's Craniosynostosis
Reggie to throw out first pitch

In an exclusive by RAB favorite George King, former Yankee bullpen catcher and A-Rod confidante vouches for Alex’s good name. “In four years I was with him 24 hours a day, and not one time did I ever hear, see or get wind of anything having to do with performance enhancing drugs, steroids, HGH, anything,” Borzello said. And this, folks, is what we’ve come to. Because a bitter and jealous Jose Canseco writes it in a book that had to struggle to find a publisher, friends now feel the need to clear A-Rod’s name. Canseco won’t offer up any proof of what he writes; whatever happened to innocent before proven guilty?

    “RAB favorite George King”? The same George King who opined that Joba should forever remain in the bullpen? I thought the phrase “RAB favorite” was for Keith Law and the like, not some hack like George King. (Or was that supposed to be sarcastic?)

      Sarcasm, Ron. Sarcasm.

    I’m more interested in the story of Borzello being with A-Rod 24 hours a day for four years…and in C-Rod’s take on that… ;-)

    In my book “Pissed! The Jose Canseco story” I detail Canseco’s addiction to cheesing. I interviewed a bunch of cats for this book. I have the evidence. C;mon Jose. Call me a liar. How about that?

    I dont think its fair to knock Canseco, he was pretty on point with the first book, except for the part where he said that he could run a 4.4. 40 (at the time he actually wrote the book). I dont think his allegations are that earth shattering. I would expect a guy like Arod to look into steroids, especially at that time when everyone was clearly doing them in the sport. I also think Canseco’s wife is hot, so good for him if he was pursuing her. At this point who really cares if Arod did or didnt do steroids, he is a Yankee for the next ten years.

    I think the gentlemen of the press, the great American public and Senator Mitchell had something to do with “innocent until proven guilty” taking a vacation.

    If this does any good, it will be that regular joe Yankee fans will actually defend (holy crap I know!) A-rod. I don’t think he touched PEDs, so if this actually turns him into a sympathetic character, that’s a benefit I wouldn’t mind.
