Here I was talking about how Arod has changed the game of baseball with his antics. How utterly tired, disgusted and disappointed I was with the whole steroid issue in baseball. The only thing that I was glad about, was that Arod is not a Blue Jay and I’m not a Yankee fan.
However, all that changed today as I am shamed and dissappointed to be a Roberto Alomar fan right now. If you thought taking steroids was bad, try this one for size. It is so dispicable
that I will not even mention it in this post (if it is true). I’ll put it this way, Alomar used to have a popular McCain frozen concentrated fruit juice commercial where he excited said at the end of the commerical, “catch the taste!’ You don’t want to know what he has been making people catch these days. Ugggghhh!!! I’m having a hard time writing this actually. We all knew Alomar had a bad side, as evidence from the umpire spitting incident and couple other things I can’t think of off hand, I did not think he was this bad. If this is true, once again, all respect for Alomar is lost.
I feel embarrassed promoting him as the ‘greatest Blue Jay of all-time’ in previous posts. I also feel embarrassed for my favorite team. Probably the two most amazingly great teams of my time (the 92-93 World Champion Toronto Blue Jays). Alomar was a huge part of what got the Jays to where they were in those years.
I maintained a great respect for Alomar, being a fan, even through all of his shortcomings. Now I feel like a piece of dirt for promoting the player that he was. Out of principle, I’m dropping Alomar on my ‘greatest Jays of all-time’ list, if this is true. Other Jays fans should do the same if you based your criteria for the list on more than production.
Sad day for me in Blue Jay land. Quite frankly, I wish he had taken steroids because this is atrocious. PLEASE DO NOT BE TRUE!! ROBBIE SAY IT AIN’T SO!!!
