Fake feats

Alex Rodriguez has hit a home run in each of the New York Yankees' last four games.

Am I supposed to be impressed? For God's sake, the guy is an ADMITTED CHEATER - forced to confess earlier this year (because he'd just been outed by Sports Illustrated) that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs in 2003.

Alex Rodriguez is emblematic of everything that's wrong with baseball today, but mindless fans and embarrassingly biased play-by-play guys like Michael Kay and John Sterling act as if he's the best thing to happen to the game since Abner Doubleday.

Unless Major League Baseball makes A-Rod pee in a cup after every game and provides conclusive evidence to us, the fans, that he is not currently using steroids, then there's no way to take seriously anything he does on the field.
