Alex Rodriguez, star baseball player for the New York Yankees did pretty poorly in the playoffs.
But it's not his fault! It was his hip!
The normally stellar slugger was doing so poorly that he was eventually benched!
The doctor who is scheduled to perform A-Rod's hip surgery, Dr. Bryan Kelly, said that the injury was the reason his post-season performance was so bad.
"I was more surprised that he was able to play at all with a hip that looked like that. Most people would not be able to play with a hip function like this and the imaging that looked like his."
So of course the next question on people's minds was: Did the steroids he admitted to using from 2001 to 2003 cause the problems?
The doc says no.
"The easiest question anyone can ask is if this is related to steroid use. I can say with 100 percent certainty this is not a steroid injury at all. This is a mechanical injury, and mechanics are something you are born with."
Well that's good at least!
The surgery should hopefully get him back to where he was before the injury!
That'd be great! Feel better, Alex!
