A-Rod and "Injector's Row"

By jcfortun Published: February 7, 2009

There has been a lot of reaction around baseball today as the news that New York Yankees third basemen Alex Rodriguez allegedly failed a drug test in 2003 hit the airwaves.

It should be known that Rodriguez failed a test in 2003, before Major League Baseball had its new steroid policy in place.

Anyhow, My favorite response so far has been form Dallas Morning News writer Evan Grant, who is now dubbing the 2003 Texas Rangers lineup “Injector’s Row.”

The Lineup included such alleged juicers as Juan Gonzalez, Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, Rafael Palmeiro and Alex Rodriguez.

Also on the Ranger's 2003 roster of dysfunction:

Ugueth Urbina was the closer of that team. Although Urbina has never been accused of juicing that I know of, he is currently sitting in a Venezuelan prison for attempted murder.

Urbina, allegedly, attacked five farm workers on his residence with a machete and poured gasoline on them in 2005.
