# 3 - Will this Dominican get smoked by his fans ?

Alex Rodriguez took banned substances while playing for the Texas Rangers.

He had just signed this enormous 10-year, $252 million dollar contract.

"I felt that I needed to perform and perform at a high level every day."

It's going to be a long climb back to respectability for a player as
unloved by his team's fans and as severely scrutinized
by the New York's media as Rodriguez is.

"I'm sorry for my fans in Texas."
