Seems as if not too many care about this story. But it gets worse and worse for A-Rod the more he tries to "explain" things the more he gets himself into trouble.
The was great anticipation for his entry to training camp a couple days ago. Duing his prepared speech (he literaly read off a few pieces of paper), he mentioned a cousin who supplied him with the drugs during his admitted period of use 2001-2003. He took no questions after the speech.
The media is in high gear for this story though (wish they could be this trueth seeking when it comes to politics) and they quicky tracked down A-Rod's cousin, one Yuri Sucart, and through him made the connection with Angel Presinal, who reportedly stayed in a room, at each city A-Rod played, with Sucart in during the 2007 season. Presinal is a known steroids distributer who has been banned from nearly every locker room in Baseball.
"Another source said Presinal accompanied A-Rod for the entire 2007 season, staying in the same hotel as the A.L. MVP, but in a separate room with the "cousin" Rodriguez pegged three days ago as his steroid source from 2001-03.
The cousin was identified Thursday as Yuri Sucart.
The source said Rodriguez avoided being seen in public with Presinal.
"He was around Alex in 2007," the source said of Presinal. "Every hotel they went to, he stayed in the same room with Yuri. You would never see Alex with [Presinal]. They would meet in one of their rooms."
So it appears A-Fraud will have some more 'splaning to do with respect to his relationship with this guy. Why the guy essentially travelled incognito with him to every stop in the 2007 season? Surely he didn't take steroids during the 2007 season. He's only admitted to taking them from 2001-2003.
