Looks like ARod's peeps leaked some names before the suspensions happened. 

Not even sure what they might have hoped to accomplish but that's not a good thing.
Nobody seemed too worked up about confidentiality when it was MLB leaking names.
MLB isn't a teammate.    Guy code. 
I doubt the Yankees consider Arod a teammate.
What they consider or don't is sort of irrelevant.   He's in the clubhouse and, if they're talking, he can listen.    And, besides, he WAS a teammate before all this happened.  I doubt he and Cervelli found Biogenesis independantly.

It looks like Arod is denying he was responsible for the leaks.
8/16/2013 5:55 PM
Why wouldn't he?

BTW, it's 60 Minutes that's reporting this not TMZ or The National Enquirer or even the MLB Network.

He didn't deny his connection to Biogenesis. He didn't deny steroids. Why would he start denying true things now?

Guy code.     What you do is what you do.   You don't blab about what others do.    Seriously, do you not understand the difference?
8/16/2013 6:07 PM
Way to completely miss the point. Arod hasn't come out and denied stuff that could literally cost him $90 million dollars. Why would he start denying things that only hurt his already decimated reputation?

I think you're missing the point.

Here, I'll try another route:
When you and your boys went on the ski vacation a few months back, instead of arguing SSM with me and tec, your group bought a couple of hookers and passed them around on the drive to the resort.   Somehow or another your husband, Gregory, found out.  Do you:
A)  Deny, deny, deny until you know you're caught and then say "I was drunk.  I don't even remember it."

or

B) Say "All of us did it!!!!  I wasn't alone!!!"

Again, you missed the point. I'm not saying it wouldn't be a ****** thing to do. I'm saying that on the list of ****** things that Arod has been accused of in the last couple weeks, breaking guy code is pretty low on the list. Yet it's the only thing he has denied.

Even saying "guy code is pretty low on the list" means you don't understand guy code.     'nuff said.

Possibly forfeiting $96 million dollars > guy code.

As I said, you do what you do, you don't talk about what others do.     It's pretty ******* simple where I come from.
