A-Rod says he's transgendered: will sue MLB & Yankees on grounds of sexual harassment/discrimination
one man's opinion.....

Posted on 08/02/2013 3:59:37 PM PDT by ken5050

Embattled NY Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez, facing the threat of a lifetime ban from baseball, and the loss of some $100 million left on his contract, just held an emotional press conference to announce that he was in fact transgendered, and was taking drugs supplied to him by Tony Bosch of Biogenesis, to prepare for a sex change operation after the season.


TOPICS: Humor; Sports
KEYWORDS: alexrodriguez; craniorectosis; hairwaytosteven; newyork; newyorkcity; pms; yankees
In a chaotic scene, surrounded by media and fans, A-Rod decided that he had no choice but to come clean and tell all. "I've struggled with my sexuality for some time. For many years, I thought I might be gay. Post game showers with my teammates were becoming more and more difficult. But then, one night, after we'd checked into our hotel room after a long flight , I couldn't sleep, and was watching an episode of "Glee," it suddenly hit me. I'm not gay. I'm transgendered..a woman trapped in a man's body...a switch-hitting catcher. I mean, look at me, I'm beautiful..this face, these hips, this ass...I'm starting to get itty bitty titties..you can just see them under my tee-shirt...and my face is so very smooth. .and the way I sashay around the bases. THIS is in fact who I am."

"But I wasn't brave enough to come out. It's still too hard for professional athletes, in all sports. So I struggled with it. Two years ago, through my cousin, I met Tony Bosch. We became very good friends, and I confided in him. He told me that he could supply me with all the pre-op medications, and arrange for the surgery to be done after the season at a clinic in Brazil."

"That's what all the secrecy was about..why he came to my house, the emails, the phone calls, the cash payments. Bosch told me that he was in fact supplying PEDS to many ballplayers, and I realized that this could be a perfect cover..everyone would think I was juicing, and not that I was taking hormone treatments."

"So now, to avoid the suspension, and the loss of a lot of money, I have to come clean. And if the Yankees and MLB don't stop this..drop all the charges, then I'm going to sue them for sexual harassment. The law's on my side..that's what my attorneys tell me. I have rights. If they don't stop, it could even be a hate crime."

A-Rod was asked what his plans were..would he now in fact go ahead with the surgery?

"Of course, I'm so ready for this. And yes, I plan to come back for spring training and play with the Yankees. I haven't decided if I'm going to be known as Alexis, or Alexa, but I'll have to find something to replace 'A-Rod.' Maybe I'll ask my fans to Tweet me their suggestions."

"There's one more good thing that has come out of my having tell all of this now. I was originally going to ave the surgery in secret, then show up in March at Tampa, and ask the Yankees to install a private bathroom and shower for me. But now, since everyone knows in advance....well...you know know some guy paid $2.6 million for Mark McGwire's 70th home run ball? Well, how much do you think they'll pay for a PAIR of A-Rod's balls?"

Is A-Rod the most hated person who ever played the game? I say yes, even more so than Ty Cobb.

If I were baseball, I’d offer to pay for the surgery and find a doctor real quick to start hormone therapy, just to see if A-Rodctakes it up.

The LGBT community are so excited they’re going to pay the balance of his contract.

Nice, excellent parody.
BUT
In these times of BO and such a story as below is not only believable but probably true.
Remember we have a pResident that took the time to call the basketball player because he ‘fessed up’ that he was really playing for the ‘other’ team.
Not to worry that he is in his 30’s, was ‘13th’ man on a 12 man squad and probably would have been playing for ‘peanuts’ this year anyway - IF HE PLAYED.

Good line about what an idiot would (probably) pay for his balls......

I don’t really care one way or the other about A-Rod. As with Cobb, perception is more important than reality.

Personally, I don’t know why he would bother to fight. He’s an old man by sport standards and he’s worth about half a billion dollars.

Go do something that you can enjoy.

I think the whole “scandal” is crap anyway.

I do agree that A-Rod should retire without fighting this crap.

He is a hall of famer. Retire with no charges brought and maybe the writers will forget about all of this and vote him in.

If McGwire and Sosa aren’t HoF’ers, than neither should A-Rod.

it’s cute when you LOL at yourself. But the real point it that you think this issue is so minor that a guy may as well walk away from scores of millions of dollars. Okay, captain consistency.

It obviously bothers you a great deal but the facts are the facts.

A paid informant and deals being made to decide who stays, who goes, and for how long. If it were really about PEDs, there would be a strict unbending policy.

A lot of speculation that Nelson Cruz will appeal, so he can play the rest of the season. He will be a free agent, but the hint is the Rangers might make a deal with him if he cooperates, because few teams will want to sign someone who stands to miss 50 games after they sign him.

Jhonny Peralta is just sitting out the rest of the season which is why the Tigers snatched up Iglesias from Boston.
