NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in his MVP season of 2003 with Texas, according to a report by Sports Illustrated.

The New York Yankees star failed a drug test for two anabolic steroids, four sources told the magazine in a story posted Saturday on its Web site.

His name appears on a list of 104 players who tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in a 2003 baseball survey, SI said. He reportedly tested positive for Primobolan and testosterone while playing for the Rangers.

Rodriguez declined to discuss the tests when approached by SI on Thursday at a gym in Miami, where he lives in the offseason.

"You'll have to talk to the union," he told a reporter. Calls from SI to union head Donald Fehr were not returned.

Major League Baseball said it was "disturbed" by the report, but did not elaborate because of player confidentiality.

"Because the survey testing that took place in 2003 was intended to be nondisciplinary and anonymous, we cannot make any comment on the accuracy of this report as it pertains to the player named," MLB executive vice president Rob Manfred said.

Say it ain't so Alex, so it ain't so.

His voice shaking at times Laughing , Alex Rodriguez met head-on allegations that he tested positive for steroids six years ago, telling ESPN on Monday that he did take performance-enhancing drugs while playing for the Texas Rangers during a three-year period beginning in 2001.

Now get to the back of the bus A-Roid.

Somebody asked him why he was so secretive about taking the stuff if he didn't think it was wrong. A-Rod's answer? (Long pause) "That's a good question. I don't know."

Sucks to see the game tarnished like this, but it has survived worse (Pete Rose, 1994 World Series cancellation, Black Sox scandal, awarding Montreal a franchise, etc...)
