So this was the picture blasted all over the front page of SI.com this afternoon as the visual background for a "pro vs. con"-style debate on legalizing PEDs in sports:
Really, SI? You're going to make A-Rod the new face of the PED controversy just because he just hit his 600th home run yesterday? What about Bonds and McGwire? What about David Ortiz, who is having a strangely solid season this year after being outed as a cheater and almost being shitty enough to get benched last season while A-Rod's power numbers are down dramatically across the board? What about Lance Armstrong, who has accusers coming out of the woodwork now in regards to his doping allegations?
I would expect this kind of cheap, blatant anti-Yankee rhetoric from ESPN because that's just what they do, but not from SI. Just a sad, pathetic, lazy display by the folks there. Leave A-Rod alone, people.
