Big League Stew - MLB

Happy Saturday! Here's your first piping-hot batch of Alex Rodriguez links:

• MLB has released its statement pertaining to "the player named": "We are disturbed by the allegations contained in the Sports Illustrated news story which was posted online this morning. Because the survey testing that took place in 2003 was intended to be non-disciplinary and anonymous, we can not make any comment on the accuracy of this report as it pertains to the player named. [MLB]

• Dan Wetzel thinks Yankees fans will eventually be able to forgive A-Rod, but that his eventual record-breaking summer won't have the magic we wanted. [Y! Sports]

• Sam Borden wonders why A-Rod didn't alert the Yankees that this story was coming if Selena Roberts had asked him about it at least two days earlier. [LoHudYankeesBlog]

• "It's not a surprising development. It was 2003. Everybody and their mother were on steroids in 2003. Not everybody was on all of the manufactured junk Bonds, Sosa and McGwire were on in those days, but it was pretty easy to tell what was going on." [Bugs & Cranks]

• Like everyone else on the non-pinstriped planet, Rich says he will be referring to him as "A-Roid" from now on. That works just too well, doesn't it? [Home Run Derby]

• The news is already being met with complete indifference from some. [Babes Loves Baseball]

• Speaking of steroids, has anyone checked out Madonna's arms? [Sons of Steve Garvey]
