As part of the story about Galea, the NY Post had an article yesterday about ARod's involvement:
Alex Rodriguez refused to get into how Dr. Anthony Galea treated him and with what drugs while he was recovering from last spring’s hip surgery, which leaves the feeling that Rodriguez and the doctor have something to hide.
Monday, the Canadian doctor admitted he treated Rodriguez with anti-inflammatory medication while the Yankees’ cleanup hitter was recovering from hip surgery.
Asked if he voluntarily stopped talking or was ordered by the Feds to shut up, Rodriguez said, “The latter.”
The Yankees, who distanced themselves from Galea in a statement last week, are waiting for the Feds to complete their investigation before commenting on Rodriguez going outside their medical department for treatment, something they don’t like players doing and could be in violation of his 10-year, $275 million contract.
“We didn’t know Alex was seeing this doctor, and we’ve been told he’s going to cooperate with the authorities in full, and he’s going to answer some questions for them,” Hal Steinbrenner said at Yankee Stadium following a press conference announcing the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. “And until that’s done, there’s just nothing to add.”
Because Galea never checked with the Yankees’ doctors or Philippon, he didn’t know what, if any, medication Rodriguez was on and that’s dangerous. That leads some to believe Galea didn’t give Rodriguez anti-inflammatory drugs. Galea, who also has worked with Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran, denies giving athletes HGH. Nor did Galea say how many times or where he treated Rodriguez.Link
