Proof that A-Rod was not on drugs

Too many people have expressed their opinion about Alex Rodriguez not based on facts. There were players that enhanced their performance as they got older by using drugs, but Alex was not one of them. His career statistics prove this.

Texas, batted .305 in 3 years. Seattle, in 7 years batted .309. New York, had a batting average of .292 after 10 years.

From 2002 to 2012, his batting averages were .300, .298, .286, .321, .290, .314, .302, .286, .270, .276, .272, .271.

Jim Bunning, Hall of Fame pitcher who pitched two no-hitters, was one of our representatives investigating baseball players use of drugs to enhance their performance. He observes that some players as they got older got better. This did not happen when he was playing. By using drugs, these players had an unfair advantage.

Did Alex get better as he got older? Look at his averages from 2002 to 2012. In 2002, he was batting .300. In 2012, his average was .272. He did not get better as he got older.

This proves that he was not on drugs to enhance his performance.

Further proof is this. In 2002, he hit 57 home runs. From 2002 to 2012, home runs decrease gradually to 18 in 2012.
