Sports Illustrated.com: A-Rod tested positive in 2003

Alex Rodriguez is falling from grace nearly as fast as his star rose.

Sports Illustrated.com is reporting that, according to four sources, A-Rod tested positive for anabolic steroid use in 1993 - and you can read their story here.

Rodriguez has had a tough time maintaining the image he first crafted in Seattle, going through a very public divorce after being photographed with a stripper and linked to Madonna. In the clubhouse, he left few friends in Seattle or Texas, and the Yankees have, indeed, called him 'A-Fraud.'

And now this?

When asked about his 2003 drug test, his only response was to tell the reporter to talk to the players' union.

Whatever happens, it's a story that makes you shake your head.

Alex, we hardly knew ye. And perhaps it was better that way.
