Full disclosure time: I’m a bit of a “conspiracy theory” guy. I believe Marilyn Monroe was murdered, JFK was shot by Richard Nixon, Jim Morrison was abducted by aliens to share his music and poetry with other galaxies, the AIDS virus can be spread by mosquitoes and Murder She Wrote was a communist plot to bring the United States to its knees. I think you get the point.

So when a co-worker threw out the idea that A-Rod’s injury was a fake to cover up the fact that he tested positive for steroids this off-season and was suspended, well I was on that like Fred Berry on a plate of brownies. The “injury” reports have A-Rod out until May. If he was suspended for 50 games, he would be eligible for return on May 27th. Mark your calendars.
