Alright, alright. I gotta get this off my chest: Hi, my name is Hannah and I am Team A-Rod.
Yep. You read that right.
Look, I get that he may not be the most likable guy and it is possible he cheated the game. If he did, he should be suspended, no question. But, is it odd to anyone else that he specifically has been targeted by MLB? Isn’t it odd that Bug Selig was never asked to testify in A-Rod’s trial, considering he basically used the “just because” clause when bringing down the 211 game suspension? And isn’t it odd that nothing like this was happening years ago when the likes of Barry Bonds and other juicers were filling the seats in stadiums across the country?
I’m not going to pretend I know everything about this trial, but there are a lot of things I don’t agree with. But, if A-Rod can agree to a shorter suspension instead of gambling for a not-guaranteed win, I think he should, not that he has the leverage to do that. If he gets less than 100 games, he has some thinking to do. If he has more, well, he won’t go down without another fight.
