Your daily dose of “A-Rod can never play again” hysteria

Lots of people spent time yesterday declaring that, despite the fact lots of players have had PED suspensions and have come back to play, A-Rod simply can’t possibly do that. Because he’s A-Rod and that makes things different somehow.

But no one forced that meme more audaciously than ESPN’s Darren Rovell:

 

Yup: The Yankees, A-Rod and an actual doctor should commit insurance fraud. Because A-Rod can’t possibly play again because of … reasons.

At some point people will get a grip. It may not be for a while, but they will eventually have to get a grip.
