Before he admitted to using steroids, Alex was considered to be top five dead or alive. He hit for average, power, had speed and was great defensively. He was damn near the second coming. He joined the 40/40 club in 1998 as a member of the Mariners. It all came crashing down when Jose Canseco mentioned him in his second book, Vindicated. Canseco wrote that Alex was on 'roids and that he even set up a deal with a distributor for Rodriguez. Of course A-Rod denied this until it came out in 2009 that he tested positive for PEDs in a 2003 test while with the Rangers. Alex finally came clean and confessed to juicing between 2001-2003 in order to live up to his record-breaking contract with the Rangers. A-Rod put most of the blame on the culture, saying, "it was such a loosey-goosey era." During the time of his admission, Alex was linked to his cousin, Yuri Sucart, who supplied Alex with PEDs in Texas and with Canadian doctor, Anthony Galea, who was under investigation by the feds. For all we know Alex has been using his whole career.
