A-Rod Must Now Settle For Days Off Rather Than Roids
Total Pro Sports – If only this were about five or six years ago. Alex Rodriguez coming off hip surgery is feeling fatigued. It is difficult to come back and play every game after undergoing such a procedure, but you are always one ass injection away from a power surge. Too bad PEDs and Roids aren’t A-Rods thing anymore.
Rodriguez was not in the starting lineup for Friday or Saturday’s games and it has since been announced that he will begin taking one day a week off to rest, six weeks after returning from the off-season surgery. The plan was created by Dr. Marc Philippon, the surgeon who operated in A-Rod. Unfortunately Brian McNamee was not available to give his diagnosis and prescription.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi will be responsible for picking which days Rodriguez will sit out through to the All-Star break. It will then be determined how he feels at that point and a decision on where to go from there will be made.
