Another Guy’s Thoughts On The A-Roid Apology

February 18, 2009 at 4:24 am Leave a comment


If you didn’t hear it live, you had to have heard about it elsewhere. Alex Rodriguez’s interview was EVERYWHERE. A-Roid sounded nervous, the reporters stumped him a few times, and he even pulled out the crocodile tears. I know everyone and their dog is posting their opinion about A-Roid and his statement, so I’m doing the same. Just a few:

  1. Injected Energy? Rodriguez stated that the supplement he was taking was an over-the-counter drug that would supply his body with mass amounts of energy, yet he injected it. Aren’t their energy drinks? Energy patches? Energy pills? Why in the hell are you putting Red Bull in a syringe and shooting in your hind parts? An over-the-counter injection? Does that come with free syringes? Sketchy.
  2. His Cousin. Rodriguez claimed that it was he and his unidentified “cousin” who took part in administring the juice. But let’s all remember where A-Roid was when he tested positive for steroids, with the Texas Rangers. A team that also housed Rafael Palmeiro, Juan Gonzalez, and Pudge Rodriguez – all of whom have been linked to banned substances. And I wonder…
  3. The Young & Dumb Excuse. When Rodriguez is asked why he ever began to use steroids, he responds with the “young & dumb” response. That lame excuse is played out! You were 25-frickin’-years-old, gimme a break! He says that he didn’t go to college and therefore didn’t have the time to grow up. Get real Alex! You were in the league at 18 and started taking juice at age 25 (supposedly), that’s seven years to mature dude, please. I use the “young & dumb” excuse after a random Friday night, not after three years of secretive drug use.
  4. Living Up To The Dollars. Rodriguez claims that he fealt the need to live up to the largest contract in MLB history, thus causing him to inject himself with steroids. The years you played in Seattle, prior to abusing steroids, is what earned you that $250 million, did they not? Yea, I thought so. Just continue to perform like you have been and you will improve with experience and practice, it’s called the natural way.
  5. Protect Thy Brother. I commend Rodriguez for handling this embarassing situation the right way, by keeping the names of other big leaguers deep down inside. Rodriguez has yet to give out any names of other juiced athletes. He has given no hints to others and says that he has no knowledge of any other players taking, or having took, steroids. This is probably a complete crock and A-Roid is most likely lying through his biceps, but he’s protecting the baseball brotherhood. Ethical or not, it’s respectful in my eyes.

Hopefully this is a done deal. Alex Rodriguez did what he had to do, he took the criticism like a man and addressed the media the way he should have. Rodriguez has taken numerous tests in recent years and swears that every test is clean. Whether the other 103 names should be released is another story and other big-leaguers will continue to express their opinion. The important thing to remember is that the MLB and Bud Selig are not innocent here. If baseball really wanted to rid the league of steroids then they would…plain and simple.
