According to Sports Illustrated, New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003, when he won the MVP award as a member of the Texas Rangers.
For Yankees haters everywhere, this stunning revelation creates a dilemma. On one hand, we anticipated jeering Rodriguez with chants of “A-Fraud,” which is what former Yankees manager Joe Torre calls Rodriguez in his newly released book. On the other hand, “A-Roid” now has a certain ring to it. Meanwhile, the classic “Pay-Rod” chant — which commemorates Rodriguez’s two $250-million-plus contracts — might work well in light of the ongoing economic crisis.
