Roberts was co-author of the Feb. 7 article on SI’s Web site that reported he was on a list of 104 players who tested positive for steroids during baseball’s anonymous 2003 survey. Rodriguez told ESPN two days later that he had used banned substances from 2001-3 while playing for Texas.
“I know this lady from Sports Illustrated, Selena Roberts, is trying to throw things out there that in high school I tried steroids. I mean, that’s the biggest bunch of baloney I’ve ever heard in my life,” he told ESPN, adding that “this lady is coming out with all these allegations, all these lies.”
Roberts said Sunday that Rodriguez called her last Wednesday. She didn’t want to comment on the call until Rodriguez holds a news conference after arriving at spring training Tuesday.
She is writing a book “A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez,” due for publication by Harper Collins on April 14.
Also, new pictures have just surfaced of A-Rod’s wild night of drinking, dancing, and frolicking in the Bahamas. Less than 12 hours later he would be home in Miami to do his interview with Peter Gammons where he would admit to doing steroids. Rumor has it he spent the night with two of the women.
Stupid me… I thought his eyes were puffy and red because he had been crying all night long before his interview…
