NY Daily News Reports Roberto Alomar Allegedly has AIDS

The February 10th, 2009 edition of the New York Daily News reports that former All-Star Second Baseman Roberto Alomar allegedly has full-blown AIDS after allegedly testing positive for HIV in 2006. He is being sued by his former live-in girlfriend, Ilya Dall for $15 million for potentially exposing her and her children to the virus. Further updates will come as this story develops, as Alomar was unavailable for comment and his lawyer would not give specifics on the status of his health. Look for the Mets to have a smaller version of the Spring Training media circus that their Bronx counterparts are experiencing as Alomar's father and brother are both coaches for the Mets. Alomar is eligible for election to the Hall of Fame in 2009.

Roberto Alomar tells ESPN that he is in good health, and asks that "people respect his privacy at this time."
