The ongoing saga of A-Rod continues. It was reported today that he has a hip injury and if he chooses the surgery, he will be out for 4 months or if he chooses to rest, he would only be out 10 weeks. He will not play for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic and will miss opening day with the New York Yankees. This is a big blow to the Yankees because they don't have a backup who can replace A-Rod and generate the amount of hits or HR's he hits.

It is sort of weird the timing of the injury and the whole steroids issues. Not really like there is a conspiracy, but maybe a sort of weird suspension. He is such a soap opera which usually leads to poor performance anyway.
