ESPN: A-Rod's cousin identified

A-Rod's cousin lives in Miami

By Amy K. Nelson

ESPN.com

As far back as anyone can remember, Yuri Sucart was always by Alex Rodriguez's side.

Sucart would tell anyone who would listen he was Rodriguez's cousin. But he was also Rodriguez's best friend, confidant and personal protector.

On Tuesday, when Rodriguez said in a nationally televised news conference from New York Yankees spring training in Tampa, Fla., that it was his cousin who provided and injected him with performance-enhancing drugs, it was Sucart to whom Rodriguez was referring, Sucart's wife, Carmen, confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday night.

When an ESPN Deportes producer knocked on the Sucarts' door in Miami, Fla., no one answered. The producer then called the Sucarts' house on the telephone and reached a woman who later identified herself as Yuri Sucart's wife. When the producer asked if Rodriguez had referred to her husband at Tuesday's news conference, she said yes.

Carmen Sucart said Rodriguez had given enough details about her husband at the news conference.

"I told you my husband has nothing to say," she said. "What A-Rod said at the press conference is what happened and that is all. And if you want to talk to my husband, why don't you talk to his lawyer?"

Carmen Sucart declined to provide the name of her husband's lawyer. As the producer stood in front of the house, a teenage boy asked him to leave and said his father would not be talking.

A man who answered Yuri Sucart's cell phone late Wednesday night said he wasn't there and asked a reporter to call back in 30 minutes. The follow-up call went to voicemail. The people who know Yuri Sucart -- his first name often pronounced Judy -- say he's a loyalist and has always protected Rodriguez.

"Yuri was a mule, not a guy who would initiate anything," a friend once close to Rodriguez said Wednesday. "He did what Alex told him to. He was only looking out for Alex. He is not a guy who would take the initiative to go out and buy drugs. Alex said during the press conference that his cousin just did what was asked -- that is perfect for Yuri's MO. He is a person who would be with him forever, a loyal guy without a bad bone in his body."

Rodriguez seemed to address that dynamic in Tuesday's news conference when he said: "I'd rather not get into who my cousin is. I'm here to stand front and center and take the blame, because I am responsible for this. He basically took an instruction from me and felt he was doing something that was going to be helpful, not hurtful."

In addition to Miami, Sucart has lived in Seattle and Texas -- the first two major league cities where Rodriguez played. Sucart, 46, was often seen with Rodriguez in Seattle. That continued in Texas. In the spring of 2002, according to Charles Colaw, a personal trainer and bodybuilder who worked at a 24-hour fitness gym in Dallas, Sucart approached him for help with his balky back.

"He would talk about Alex all the time," Colaw said. "It seemed like he lived his life vicariously through [Rodriguez]. But he never talked to me about drugs or any of that stuff."

Colaw said he worked with Sucart for about six months until he stopped calling for personal training sessions. Colaw described Sucart as stocky and in need of weight loss. He said Sucart would often call boasting about being on the Rangers' team plane, telling Colaw where the team was headed and when he'd be back in town to train. Colaw also said Sucart would promise tickets to games and free equipment like tennis shoes, since Rodriguez "had an endorsement deal with Nike."

Colaw was supposed to meet Sucart at a Rangers game and visit the clubhouse afterward. Colaw said Sucart stood him up and he never met Rodriguez.

Other sources said Sucart would pay Rodriguez's bills, secure reservations by blocking off parts of restaurants for privacy and clean up after any mess left behind.

"He was very, very careful," a source close to the cousins said. "He would not incriminate Alex. If they got into a fight, he'd say Alex was an [expletive] but would never say what the argument was about."

Well there you go Fatso, A-Rod didn't make him up.

Now people (Mike and Mike) are saying it is suspicious that they were able to find him so fast, as if it was set up that way. This guy can not catch a break. If they couldn't find the cousin they would say it is because he doesn't exist, they do find him and they say it was too easy.

Too easy? ESPN is a bunch of morons. People who know A-(fill in the blank) knew right away it was one of the amigos he hangs out with in Miami.

In fact the NY ESPN radio coverage of the press conference made note that they figured it was one of several of the guys he is always with when he's there, and they said it right away.

Yup, Michael Kay pretty much all but said he knew who it was cause A-Rod's 2 closest confidants are his cousin who gave him the roids and his half/step-brother. Couldn't remember if he was half or step, but he's related to him in some way.

Mike did not say he was definitely made up, he said the way A-Fraud read that letter, it was hard to believe anything, and that for all he knew and how he made it sound, it could have been a factious character.

I agree, that whole speech sounded so fake, but I knew when he said his cousin exactly who he was talking about as did anyone listening to Michael Kay.

Mike came up with my cousin Vinny cause A-blank did not give up his name.

Roidy did read that letter like he never even saw it before, let alone wrote it and prepared to read it.

He said I did like he was unsure, like he was questioning it, he came off like such a clown.

When he was asked why he did not bring up his cousin in the ESPN interview, his first reaction was that he forgot it was so long ago.

Yeah, that sounds really believable, if you don't understand English maybe.

I'm with you there, what he attempted to do at NoMaas.org was enough for me to not like the guy. Shame cause he does bust his ass when it comes to yankees news.

All you are doing here is making assumptions. It's obvious you already have your mind made up, because you don't like A-Rod to being with, but no one knows the truth, so don't act like you do.

What are you talking about??? I posted what Mike said, and as far as how A-Rod sounded I heard him and he souned like a phoney.

For someone who supposedly wanted to read a statement, he sounded like he never saw it before.

No assumtions are being made in any of that.

How are you not making assumptions?

"Roidy did read that letter like he never even saw it before, let alone wrote it and prepared to read it."

"he sounded like a phony"

"he sounded like he never saw it before"

Those are assumptions. Since when is A-Rod suppose to be Barack Obama? He's a ball player, not an orator.

Those are my opinions, I am assuming nothing, he did actually read the letter right?

Your opinion is an assumption, it's not based on facts.

and what's wrong with a written statement? Again, he's not a great orator, why are you expecting him to be a distinguished public speaker? Andy Pettitte read a written statement last season, yet everyone believes him. Be honest, you don't like A-Rod, and you would of nitpicked everything and anything he said.

Are you for real???

My opinions on how he sounded to me is not an assumtion of anything, it's how he sounded to me. I am not saying it's fact, only how it sounded to me.

I do not expect him to sound good or be a public speaker, but I do expect someone who is supposedly reading something they wanted to read, to sound like they belived it and saw it before.

:yawn:

There you go making things up again. You do not know if Alex wrote his written statement or not, because he "sounded" like he didn't, isn't good enough, that could simply be a symptom of being a awful public speaker.

Do you live in a free country or are you just a little slow?

I am not saying he did not write his own statement, I am saying he read it like he did not believe it or have even seen it before.

That is my opinion, I am not saying he did not write it, only how it sounded to me. You don't have to be a public speaker to not do what he was doing up there, any literate should be capapble, again that's my opinion.

Nobody could be this dense!

Andy Pettitte also said he took them to get an edge in his recovering process, he also took follow up and asnwered as many questions as they had.

A-Fraud said he did not know why he was taking them and what effects they had, would not take follow up questions, and they cut the whole thing short way before nearly everybody had a crack at him.

Can you tell me why he would buy and inject something in secrecy for 3 years according to him, if he had no idea what they were, and what they were doing for him?

I do live in a free country. And in this country you shouldn't make accusations until you get some facts.

Who is making accusations??? I posted an opinion on what something I heard sounded like to me.

Care to address the other questions I asked, or are you just ignoring them?

Not sure why you keep talking about things I didn't question. I question you saying A-Rod didn't write his written statement, and you don't know if he did or not, that is all.

Are you this dumb for real?

I never said he did not write it, I said in my opinion he sounded like he did not believe it or ever saw it before.

That is not an accusation or an assumption, it is my own personal opinion on how he sounded to me.

What is your malfunction?

Will you quit the name calling, can you have a discussion without attacking me?

Whether Arod wrote it or not, or how he sounded while reading it... People can give an opinion saying they dont think he wrote it based on the way he sounded. And whether he has this opinion based on his feelings for Arod are only known to him.

This isnt a court case. This is a forum of opinions. That was his. You disagree.

Now lets move on with life.

Yes as soon as you stop trying to say I said something I did not say.

I am not assuming he did not write it, I'm saying he sounded like he did not believe it or ever saw it before when he read it.

I am not asuming he did not believe it or never saw it before either, nor am I accusing him of any of that.

I simply gave my opinion on how it sounded to me, if I am accusing him of anything, it's that he did not sound believable and again that's just my opinion.

Is that better, are we clear now?
