Yet More Slappy Schadenfreude

The New York Daily News reported today that Alex Rodriguez took more steroids than just the stuff he admitted to in Texas, as the new book coming out next month from Selena Roberts (I've got to read it) states that Slappy was using the juice in high school, and in 2004 with the Yankees.

Roberts, in the new A-Rod bio, says that an unnamed major leaguer says that Slappy and Kevin Brown were seen with HGH in 2004 (a lot of good that did Brown that year). And two Yankee teammates say they believe Rodriguez was doing steroids by the side effects they saw.

Roberts also says in her book that a high school teammate of Slappy believes that their high school coach knew he was on the juice, that he put on nearly 25 pounds of muscle between his sophomore and junior years.

And even more embarrassing stuff, which we never tire of: Anonymous Yankee teammates referring to Slappy as "B**ch T**s." (Not hard to figure out what I left off, but that's they way I saw it in the News, saw I thought I'd leave it as is.)

The book, "A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez," comes out May 12th.

Ah, more Slappy schadenfreude. It always picks up any dull day. BTW, seeing that News cover, don't you think that picture of Slappy and the headline, "Golden Girl" sort of go together?
