Alex Rodriguez's horrible offseason continues. As if undergoing hip surgery and being accused of using performance-enhancing drugs (again!) wasn't bad enough, now comes the news that A-Rod is being sued by—get this—his own cousin Yuri Sucart. Sucart has filed a lawsuit against A-Rod in Florida for libel, defamation of character, fraud, and dues owed and is seeking $5 million. He says that his name has been tarnished because of his connection to A-Rod—the Yankees star said Sucart was the one who introduced him to PEDs years ago and injected them into his body—and he wants to be compensated for it.
So, wait: Now one of A-Rod's own family members is coming out against him?! Damn. This guy really just can't win right now.
