Maybe there is a bit more to why Joe Torre refers to New York Yankees shortstop Alex Rodriguez as A-fraud instead of his nickname A-Rod.
Sports Illustrated is reporting that Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003, His MVP season with the Texas Rangers. During that season , A-Rod hit .298 with 47 homers and 118 RBI.
Four sources independently confirmed the report to Sports Illustrated. Rodriguez allegedly tested positive for two anabolic steroids.
