Alex Rodriguez Newspaper Headlines

The New York Post Goes All In On Their Latest A-Rod Headline

2/9/09 in MLB   |   100%InjuryRate   |   1283 respect

Because the news that A-Rod had tested positive for steroids back in 2003 broke on Saturday, the story didn't quite get the massive amount of coverage that it would have if it had broken on say a Thursday morning. But that's OK, because today the papers are letting A-Rod have it - big time.

Here's the New York Post's front page for today. Needless to say, the paper went all in on this headline.

I especially like the picture of A-Rod swinging the giant syringe in the bottom right corner. And people say we bloggers take things too far. Man, we don't hold a candle to the Post.

Here were a few other A-Rod headlines from the weekend and today. None come close to topping the Post's ridiculous headline.

Of course, I'm not sure anything will ever top this headline when news broke that Roger Clemens had done steroids.

All you Boston fans also, I will put money on it that David Ortiz, your homerun machine, has taken alot of roids in his days. So back-off A-Rod because he can still hit even after qutiing using roids unlike your Ortiz.

Look at you all. You poke fun at one fot he best players in baseball because he used once we he was on the Rangers, but you can't tell me that any player that hits 30+ homeruns a year hasn't used some kind of a performance enhancing drug. You need tot think how many people you have let go with using roids.

Look at his face on the front page! hes thinking..........

"little do you know, right as your taking this photo im doing roids right now. Yup.....right up the butt"

Haha I especially like the picture of A-Rod swinging the giant syringe....haha and right next to it they spell his name A-R*D, classic. I need to go buy a cheap frame

That first photo with A-Rod's big smile should be put in archival, acid-free protective plastic, encased in glass, and then mounted in the most prominent wing of the D-Bag Hall of Fame.

Hmmmm....can't understand why some players refuse to play in NYC.

I know, me neither.

So Roger Clemens took it in the butt and is a baby killer?

Now is time for the New York media to try and save face Bud Selig style and massively berate someone who may or may not have wronged them while they reaped the fiscal benefits of once supporting what is now in he face of scrutiny.  A mouthful I'm sure, but nothing more than the mouthful the Yankees took from A-Rod as he flip-flopped on whether or not he would stay in New York while the team unloaded a truck of money on his driveway.

The Post is one of the best tabloids around.

Ah the Post and it's subtle, delicate, rhetorical chiaroscuro, how I miss it!
