A-Rod Drama

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

It isn't spring training unless there's A-Rod drama involved. Yesterday, the Canadian doctor who is under investigation for having the drug Actovegin, which is not approved for sale in Canada and is illegal in the United States, said that he had treated A-Rod after his hip surgery. Dr. Anthony Galea, who was also found with HGH at the US-Canadian border, said he had only given A-Rod anti-inflammatories, which of course, is legal.

However, the Yankees along with Dr. Marc Philippon, never gave authorization for A-Rod to seek medical attention from this doctor. This presents a problem for the Yankees. This could result in a void in A-Rod's contract, but some think the Yankees would not let that happen. There is also the possibility of fining A-Rod, but I'm sure the player's union will step in if that happened.

If I'm a member of the Yankees front office, I'd be pretty ticked off at A-Rod because he went behind the Yankees and their doctors backs. A-Rod has yet to speak to federal investigators, but if what has been said is true, the Yankees and A-Rod have some trust issues they need to work out.
