Wow. Did Gary Apple really call A-Rod a “maniacal serial liar”? Yes, I believe that he did…
However, on the other side, Apple did also press Roberts on the Duke issue…
Steve, a few points about what she said. I’ve read and reviewed the book. I would put up a link, but I’m afraid somebody might accuse me of self-promotion!
* “more an explanation than an excorciation” – I dunno. When you call somebody a “slumlord” and compare him to the sociopathic Talented Mr. Ripley and Mr. Potter of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” I think it’s an excorciation, but maybe that’s me.
* A-Rod is a “creature of embellishment” – very true. Which is why it doesn’t make any sense for Roberts that her top point to “prove” that A-Rod used steroids in high school is that Alex once said he went from bench-pressing 100 pounds to 300 pounds.
* Still waiting for somebody to ask her why she didn’t ask Buck Showalter or anybody of her on-the-record sources about the pitch-tipping accusation.
* Her faux-sympathetic tone about A-Rod’s childhood in the interview is not what is written in the book.
* And her Duke lacrosse explanation is nonsense, and does not reflect her original columns. Give credit to Apple, though, for asking her about it in the first place.
