The A-Roid saga continues.
Frankly, the A-Roid saga should be moved back to roughly 1978. He would have fit right in with the Bronx Zoo in terms of media explosions. I doubt the actual players would have been able to stand him.
We know about the latest steroid accusations. We know about his less-than-mastery of Twitter to announce his self-decided rehab schedule and the GM telling him to shut up. We know how badly he performed in the minors. But he got through all of it, was supposedly about to rejoin the team...
...and strained a quad muscle. Back to the DL.
It might be worth noting that the Yankees have sent sixteen players to the DL this season, and a couple of them aren't coming off until next season. You can't catch steroid proneness to injury and I'm not accusing anyone else in the clubhouse of being on that list unless their name was already released. This is a combination of aging players and pure bad luck. But I do feel A-Roid is a contaminant on several other levels. 'He's coming back! Quick, injure something!'
I wonder what his current trade value is.
I wonder if any team is stupid enough to ask.
