Wow...good to see A-Rod come clean, but honestly, this admission is a year too late for me. Remember, it was only a year ago when A-Rod strongly denied that he ever used performance enhancing drugs.
And so it goes with A-Rod. Another day, another story. We now have the best player in the game, who is also a liar and a cheater. Not good.
It was interesting how A-Rod stated how the pressures of his massive contract were a reason why he used steroids. To me, it humanizes Rodriguez. So often, we think that professional athletes are immune to pressure, which is obviously not the case. Even A-Rod, one of the best players to ever play the game, he still felt the need to cheat because of pressure and expectation.
Hey, maybe A-Rod should have just sat back and listened to some Billy Joel...
"You have to learn to pace yourself
You're just like everybody else
You've only had to run so far, so good
But you will come to a place
Where the only thing you feel
Are loaded guns in your face
And you'll have to deal with
