    I don't get why the Yankees are treating A-Rod like a POS. Yankee championships have been built on other steroid users besides A-Rod. They never benched Jeter and allowed him to bat first for a whole year even though he sucked.

    Other teams/fans love their steroid users even if they have tested positive, why are the Yankees being so different?

    I am not justifying the Yankees actions, but Alex did lie about roid use, covered it up and then sued the Yanks. There is no love lost there. Jeter never tested positive, went through slumps and then excelled. Comparing them is like comparing apples and oranges. They are very different peeps.

    Arod should have just taken the hint and gone away years ago.

    Yankees wanted to get out of his contract that's why they helped Selig with his bullshit lets crucify Arod and pretend he's the only steroid user

    The Yankees are dummies. If they had just played him for the last four games, he probably would have gone quietly to little fanfare. Now the storyline is how Girardi lied about letting him play and how they, somehow, made a-rod a sympathetic figure. Should have just sucked it up and given him two or three at bats each game.

    It's pretty clear the Yankees have some hard feelings and don't want him to get to 700 homeruns. I'm no Yankee fan but Jeter was a class act who never did anything to embarrass himself, his team, or his sport. A-Rod was nothing but bush league on and off the field, only cared about himself, and the lawsuit against the Yankees was ill-advised. (He reminds me of Wiggy). Here's a partial list of his worst moments:

    Bonds was a victim of collusion and was blackballed from the sport despite an ops of 1.045 and an ops+ Of 169 in his final season. Yankees might not be the only ones with their hand in this

    Just heard the big baby whining because he wants to play 3rd base tomorrow but was told no. Trying to pretend it's "for the fans", pretty funny from a guy who has been nothing but ME ME ME ME for his whole career.

    Arod is an asshole and deserves all the karma he is now receiving.
