Am I the only one not totally buying this mysterious hip surgery A-Rod is having?
Its no secret that A-Rod is one of the hardest working players in baseball, and a hip injury is typically
A) a conditioning injury(which as stated above, doesn't make sense given the player we are talking about)
B) his body breaking down from PED's? Hmmmm
C) a red herring to cover up something else? Time off? An emotional breakdown? Some kind of mental rehab facility? He has trouble dealing with pressure, has had trouble dealing with New York, and now the steroid thing? It makes one think.
I'm not usually a conspiracy theorist, but this seems fishy, this is A-Rod we are talking about here. If he had a nagging injury last year how come his numbers didn't show it? How come in some cases(his fielding percentage) his numbers were better than the phenomal year he had before? Wouldn't a hip injury hinder his side to side movement and make it more difficult for him to get balls especially considering he has more space to make up for given the fact that Jeters range isn't even close to what it used to be?
AND, if he had kicked steroids when he came to new york in 2004, it seems weird for a physical breakdown to happen five years after the fact.
