“The Undoing of Alex Rodriguez”

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/undoing-alex-rodriguez_745668.html

“It’s not clear how much the performance-enhancing drugs that may cost Rodriguez a lengthy suspension (which he intends to contest) have also hurt his health. He is rebounding from major surgery on his left hip, where doctors repaired a torn labrum and a femoroacetabular impingement, which causes groin pain and limited hip motion due to extra bone that develops on either side of the ball-and-socket hip joint. Rodriguez underwent surgery on his right hip for the same condition in 2009. It seems that one of the problems is that his perhaps drug-enhanced body is rebelling against the constant grind of big-league baseball, spring training, 162-game regular schedule and the Yankees’ typical post-season games. The hitting alone—at-bats, batting practice, short toss, etc.—would wear down Rodriguez’s hips, the source of a hitter’s power, but there’s also defense, and he’s simply grown too large for infield play.”
