A-Rod's Associates Coming to Life

Alex Rodriguez is way off base if he thinks he can just move on now after admitting steroid use and holding a press conference. A-Rod's nefarious cousin was revealed yesterday by the NY Daily News to be Yuri Sucart. But that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Angel Presinal was banned from all MLB clubhouses after he was caught with a bag of steroids at a Toronto airport in 2001. At the time, he said they belonged to Juan Gonzalez. Now comes word from the Daily News that Presinal was a regular companion of A-Rod's in 2007. That's right, A-Rod's best season as a Yankee and in his contract year.

The source said Rodriguez avoided being seen in public with Presinal.

"He was around Alex in 2007," the source said of Presinal. "Every hotel they went to, he stayed in the same room with Yuri. You would never see Alex with [Presinal]. They would meet in one of their rooms."

Presinal was not around A-Rod and the Yankees during the 2008 season, the source said, but Sucart remained a constant presence around Rodriguez, at home and on the road.

"Yuri is his driver," the source said. "He takes care of him all the time. His clothes, his food; he's with Alex every day."

Brian Cashman was quick to clarify that the Yankees had no association with Presinal, while A-Rod's agent, Scott Boras, declined to comment.

MLB already wants to talk to A-Rod as they did with Jason Giambi after his PED revelation, but now it's possible that the US government could be calling A-Rod in for a meeting.

You just get the feeling this is going to get a whole lot uglier.
