A-Rod back in the spotlight

Alex Rodriguez spoke to the media today and managed to get himself into some trouble.

Peter Abraham explains:

During his meeting with reporters today, the subject of PEDs came up and Rodriguez said he was tested nine or 10 times last season.

While that sounds good, that many tests would indicate a problem. Players are usually tested twice: once during spring training and at some random time during the season. There are 600 additional random tests during the season spread out over 1,200 players or so.
Rodriguez later admitted that he was exaggerating to prove a point. Hopefully it wasn't a Freudian slip.

For someone who tries to be as media savvy as Rodriguez does, it's really amazing that he lets quotes like this come out.

Just when I said that ARod was flying under the radar he puts his cleats in his mouth. Nice job Alex!
