A-Rod, Clemens and Steroids

January 11, 2008 |

I was reading an issue of USA Today’s Sports Weekly and came across an article about the Mitchell Report. There was a list of 22 players that responded to the report. Out of the 22 that responded, 11 of the players said that the report was true and that they made a mistake. 6 of the players said that the report was a lie. 4 of the players had no comment and 1 player said that the he bought something from Radomski but never used steroids. Roger Clemens was 1 of the players that strongly denied the report.
Where am I going with this? If 11 guys said that the report was right on, then I’m willing to bet you that the report was right on. To the players that didn’t comment. If you were innocent why wouldn’t you comment? You get the point.
A few years back Jose Canseco said that 80 percent of baseball was on steroids/HGH. Everyone laughed at him. He named people like Palmerio, Tejada, Giambi etc. For the record, I don’t remember anyone suing Canseco for calling them out.  Looking back at Canseco’s comments now, I think it’s safe to say that he was telling the truth. Now Canseco is saying that he was surprised that Alex Rodriguez’s name wasn’t mentioned in the Mitchell Report.
Is MLB protecting their Golden Boy? Not A-Rod!!! Not the guy that is going to break every baseball record, I believed Canseco before and I believe him again. Wait and see if something doesn’t come out about A-Rod down the road.
