Giuliani: ‘I’ve Seen The Other Side Of A-Rod’


giuliani2Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a die-hard Yankees fan, weighed in Sunday on the Biogenesis scandal sweeping baseball that could see Yankees third basemen Alex Rodriguez facing a 214-game ban.

“I’ve seen the other side of A-Rod – extremely kind to kids, very good teammate. I can’t evaluate this,” Giuliani said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Giuliani, who was sporting a blue Yankees bracelet himself, noted he wasn’t sure what the players, including A-Rod, have done wrong and emphasized he didn’t know all the facts.

“Here’s the part I’m a little confused about. … I don’t exactly understand completely this Biogenesis situation. I don’t understand exactly what it is that they did wrong,” Giuliani said.

“Did they just do Biogenesis, which is basically blood enhancement, which a number of other athletes did? Or – here is what I suspect – under the guise of that, they were getting human growth hormone, which is what would make it as serious as it is. … I don’t know all the facts, so I’m very hard-pressed to make a definitive conclusion.”

Rodriguez, a three-time American League MVP, who helped the Yankees defeat the Philadelphia Phillies in the 2009 World Series, has been recovering from injuries all season. Reports say that as a result of the scandal, he is likely to be suspended for the duration of the 2013 season and all 162 games of the 2014 season.

  3. Oh, Please. Giuliani is a first class lawyer. I believe he was a district attorney or held some other high legal position even before he became mayor. He practically eliminated the Mafia, which is something that no one was able to do before him. He fought corruption in many areas. Suddenly, he is playing dumb and doesn’t understand exactly what these players did wrong. Gimme a break!
