Alex Rodriguez Admits Using Banned Substance

Today in an exclusive interview with Peter Gammons of ESPN, Alex Rodriguez admitted using a banned substance somewhere between 2001-2003. Some of his words:

“And I did take a banned substance and, you know, for that I’m very sorry and deeply regretful. And although it was the culture back then and Major League Baseball overall was very … I just feel that … You know, I’m just sorry. I’m sorry for that time. I’m sorry to fans. I’m sorry for my fans in Texas. It wasn’t until then that I ever thought about substance of any kind, and since then I’ve proved to myself and to everyone that I don’t need any of that.”

I want to see the entire interview before fully commenting but I have a big problem with the 104 other names not being disclosed and once again an individual taking all the heat.

Bud Selig needs to make himself accountable for presiding over an era that will NOT be blamed on a couple of men. Are we really that stupid and insecure? Is Griffey the only name that would shock left?

Michael Phelps is happier than hell this story broke huh?

Last week LeBron was on the cover of GQ, and Sports Illustrated, and Gentlemen’s Quarterly outright claimed King James as the best while SI alluded to the fact that both he and Kobe are the best.
