The Rise and Fall of A-Rod

Great piece by Joe Posnanski for NBC Sports:

Everyone talked about his joy for the game, his deference to teammates, his innocence. โ€œOn July 27,โ€ Gerry Callahan wrote that year in a Sports Illustrated story called โ€œThe Fairest of Them All,โ€ โ€œAlex Rodriguez will turn 21, making him old enough to have a beer with his Seattle Mariners teammates. He says heโ€™s not interested. โ€˜Canโ€™t stand the taste,โ€™ he says. Rodriguez has always felt more at home among milk drinkers.โ€
