If A-Rod continues to struggle this season, you will begin to hear that he still needs surgery, he’s not healthy, etc. If he struggles in 2010 and beyond, you will begin to hear that he is getting older, his best years are behind him, etc. What you never seem to hear is that maybe this is the real A-Rod, minus the ‘roids.
And we all know how much trouble bloggers can get into when bringing up ‘roids, but if Joba’s fastball and starpower continue to diminish, someone has to at least bring up the possibility that this guy is another Gagne plummeting back down to Earth right before our eyes.
