I came away from that press conference still completely lost on this issue. I can’t rationalize how A-Rod took a drug for three years that he didn’t know what it was and wasn’t sure if it worked or not. The whole "I was young and stupid" line doesn’t work for me at all either.
But, I am also really sick of this whole thing and if Alex steps up and tries to speak out against steroid use and supports the Tyler Hooten Foundation then I will move on too. Alex asked to be judged from this point forward and the ball is in his court on that. If he goes from here and becomes an example, I have a feeling people will forgive him.
