Any thoughts out there?

I think he said the right thing, like he wanted to live up to expectations and such.

remind me what he said in 03 or whatever year he testified.. did he lie?
If so, then what? Shouldnt matter if it was a abseball issue of any other FBI or CIA issue - did he lie under oath?

appears as though Bonds did - or I'd be sure somewhere around 99.9% that he did. Whats his punishment going to be? Im guessing nothing

The funny part is yes these players are getting hammered now, but who's to say older players back in the 50's (micky mantle, babe ruth ect) didnt use performance enhancement drugs? Tey've been around since the 30's.

I give A Rod credit for coming clean, it just sucks the NYC newspapers are crucifying him. There are another 103 players who got tested but he is the first to come out and say it (aside from the obvious bonds/clemens) and nobody else is getting the shit he is

Tired of turining on ESPN and hearing 4 straight hours of this bullshit. The interview was a joke, there were no follow up questions and A-Rods answers were shady at best. People cannot seriously be this interested in something we all suspected for years.


Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil,

'The Light at the End of the Tunnel' has been turned off.

drunk and joking aside its true they could have. It sucks we'll never know because im sure there is a code with the old timers not to say a word but they are looked at as legends of the game. Now a days if anybody even drinks an energy drink before a game its considered "enhancing".

They should leave them outlawed in the game but look at both sides of the playing field. A rod's next few seasons will show if he was lying or not.

Up until the 80's the myth was baseball players should not lift weights because bulk would mess up a swing.

Do not give him too much credit. He had no choice to come clean. He tested positive. What else could he say?

This absolutely falls on MLB. They did nothing for too long and they still aren't doing enough. They liked the fact that players were hitting the long ball after the strike and turned a blind eye because in their minds it was bringing the fans back. The fans would have come back even without the juiced players and juiced ball. MLB took a shortcut.
Now they have to deal with the stigma of who is natural and who is not.
A-Rod was a great hitter and would have been a very good player for years without the assistance of PED but he too took a shortcut.

I can see a fringe (220avg, 2hr, 35RBI per season) player taking a shot and using PED but a superstar or superstar in the making like Barry Bond or Alex Rodriguez? That's greed..... like the wall street bankers that walk away with millions while the economy and their company collapse around them.

I feel better now.

Da Bears!

And that is very true, its a double edge sword. He never would've said anything had his name not been thrown out there. He also had time to come up with a convincing story. But on the other hand his stats havent changed much from when he was to when he isnt so I dont think it should effect his Hall of fame stature.

Guys like bonds and Mgwire, and Sosa. Yes, because A rod is an all around player who has genuine talent, not bashing 100 home runs a season like the 2 knuckleheads did that one year. Or taking enhancements to throw a curve ball on the edge of the plate and outsmart a batter, yes it'll give him that extra edge on his fastball, but he isnt striking guys out with 101 mph fastballs.
