Default SI Reports A-Rod Received Permission from MLB to use PEDs in 2007


This whole A-Rod case won't go away and just got a LOT messier. If he was granted exemptions in 2007 and 2008, it wasn't until his hip started bothering him in 2009 and became a financial burden for the Yankees that MLB decided to do anything about it. This is a pretty big black mark on Bud "I rid the game of PEDs" Selig's legacy.

Go Sox!!!

I can't believe I haven't heard of this until now. That's unreal if true.

So let me get this straight: he was claiming that he had "low T" as a medical condition and thereby needed to take steroids?

This sounds like BS. But, you never know...
