Selena Roberts's 272-Page Blog Post About A-Rod Released Today
Oh, Selena Roberts. The Sports Illustrated writer unleashed the biggest sports story of the year by revealing Alex Rodriguez had tested positive for steroid use during his Major League Baseball career. And then, to quickly capitalize, she wrote a book, A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez. It was originally slated to hit stores May 12, but an early leak of details to the New York Daily News pushed the release to today.
"I think like any child, you never want to be abandoned again. In order to sort of keep people near him, people close, please people, I think he always felt that he had to be better than good," Roberts said in an interview with the AP while discussing Rodriguez's daddy issues.
