Alex Rodriguez went a little overboard the other day in his interview with Peter Gammons in trying to portray SPORTS ILLUSTRATED writer Selena Roberts as some sort of obsessed stalker. But why? Roberts has vehemently denied almost all of A-Rod’s accusations. Could it be because Roberts was successful at getting closer to A-Rod than he wanted, without resorting to over-the-top antics?
Somebody had to leak to Roberts that A-Rod failed a drug test in 2003. A-Rod claims that he didn’t know about the failed test until Roberts told him about it recently. But that doesn’t make any sense, since the MLB Players’ Association told everyone who failed before they were re-tested in 2004. But the only people they told were the players themselves. So who else would have known about the test results? I don’t know, could it have been … A-Rod’s wife?
