A-Rod Admits Using PEDs

And I still don’t care. Maybe I’m missing the big picture here. Yes, it’s surprising when a sports “hero” is caught cheating, but let’s consider the era we are talking about here. It was such a disgusting time for baseball, so bad it with all of the dirt going on, it made this guy famous — AGAIN — for no reason whatsoever, other than he was willing to rat out his teammates in print to make a buck. Hell, that book single-handedly kick-started the Mitchell Report investigation.

And this A-Rod news is somehow supposed to be earth-shattering?

More A-Rod fluff after the jump >>

Seriously, Who Cares? (A-Rod)

Getting the cream applied, Alex?

So, did any interesting Alex Rodriguez news come out this weekend? I must have missed it because I don’t what all the hub-bub is about. Oh this? Yeah, I guess I can see how that can be troubling, but for some reason, the only response I can think of is this:

Whoooooo cares?!? (courtesy of Virginia Crock)

Welcome Back, Welcome Back, Welcome Back

In case that rock you’ve been living under only gets March Madness news, Major League Baseball officially returned yesterday, and I don’t think it went by unnoticed. In fact, I’m sure of it.

Some minor thoughts of a baseball fledgling:

Will Johan Santana have trouble adjusting to the National League? Not so much.

His name is FUK-U-DOME!!! And the Cubs love him.

Kansas City Royals = Amazing?

There was a bunch more that is worth commenting on but I’ll stop before this turns into an all-out link dump… I think those are good for now.

One more thing:

Jose Canseco still needs to shut his mouth. I know I’ve traveled this road before — but — If anyone is getting anything other than, “Look at me, I am an attention whore” from him, they are being duped. Of course, you might just believe Canseco has some hidden ammunition.

Whatever.

The ONLY reason he seems to be attacking A-Rod is because he’s the most popular player in baseball and if Jose can ride in Rodriguez’s wake vicariously or through accusations he’s unwilling or unable to substantiate, then he’s popular as well.

Oh look. Just in time to pitch his new book.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to be popular when they are hawking stuff? Quit feeding the dragon and enjoy the baseball season. I’m talking to you, ESPN.

Intentional Link Dump: Mitchell Report Edition

Jenn StergerYes, the Golden Fleece of the sports blog world–better known as the Mitchell Report–was revealed to the world last night and needless to say, there was a truck-load’s worth of reaction. Today’s Link Dump Round-up focuses on some of the more entertaining posts that came from the Mitchell Report… and Jenn Sterger, because you can never have enough of FSU’s chosen one; although, after UK puts a whoopin’ on her Seminoles at the Music City Bowl, she may not want to be associated with us. ;)

On with the links.

The fabulous foursome at Babes Love Baseball have an awesome Christmas poem commemorating yesterday’s Mitchell Report fun. The poem is done to the tune of Twas the Night Before Christmas and like any good baseball fan should, these ladies knock it out of the park.

The fellas at Fire Joe Morgan don’t seem to agree with John Kruk’s take on whether or not the names in the Mitchell Report are, in fact, guilty of taking steroids.

Awful Announcing has a good video of David Justice defending himself against the allegations revealed yesterday. Is ignorance a plausible defense?

Did Roger Clemens actually deny anything? East Coast Bias doesn’t think so.

Jose Canseco is a tool who is using A-Rod’s name to stay relevant. Canseco didn’t have anything on him in his first book and now he’s trying to promote his follow-up on the back of Alex Rodriguez’s name. Just STHU, will you please?

JoeSportsFan is wondering just how helpful steroids are.

Of course, Orson Swindle at EDSBS, the premiere college football blog, couldn’t let all this Mitchell Report news go unanswered. Here’s what they learned from it.

That’s it for the Mitchell Report link dump, but there is more reading to be done.

Jenn Sterger is interviewed by Epic Carnival, which is a good excuse to show pictures of her here. Nicely done, fellow Carnies.

And from the self-serving files, the University of Kentucky signed AD Mitch Barnhart to a five-year extension, which should be great news to any Wildcat fans’ ears. Barnhart has done a great job of replacing the old guard, who seemed to care more about their tickets-for-cars program instead of bringing UK into the 21st century. The extension pays him $475,000 a year, with incentives.
