Alex Rodriguez isn’t exactly known for playing fair. This is a guy who has admitted to using steroids to further his baseball career. And now the third baseman for the New York Yankees is stretching the rules once again.
According to reports, Alex Rodriguez flew to Germany to get a controversial treatment done in an attempt to heal injuries to his left shoulder and right knee. The treatment, which is called plasma-rich platelet injections, has been called cheating by some experts. Other experts say that it’s bad science.
Either way, Alex Rodriguez should be above this. He should have used steroids. And he shouldn’t have flown to Germany to stretch the rules of fairness once again.
While Alex Rodriguez may one day finish his career with better statistics than any player who ever lived, he has done so at the expense of respect. Shame on him.
