Congratulations to ESPN's Peter Gammons for landing the first interview of Alex Rodriguez since the Yankees third baseman admitted to using steroids.
During the interview, Rodriguez three times expressed his disdain for Selena Roberts, who was the first to report about Rodriguez's positive drug tests.
Here's part of what Rodriguez said:
I mean, what makes me upset is that Sports Illustrated pays this lady, Selena Roberts, to stalk me. This lady has been thrown out of my apartment in New York City. This lady has five days ago just been thrown out of the University of Miami police for trespassing. And four days ago, she tried to break into my house where my girls are up there sleeping, and got cited by the Miami Beach police. I have the paper here. This lady is coming out with all these allegations, all these lies because she's writing an article for Sports Illustrated and she's coming out with a book in May. Really respectable journalists are following this lady off the cliff and following her lead. And that, to me, is unfortunate.Selena Roberts tried to break into Rodriguez's house while his daughters were sleeping? ESPN didn't follow up on this topic, so I don't know whether this is true. Can someone do the legwork on this for me, please? I clearly need a hard-nosed reporter for this task. I wonder if Selena Roberts is available.
