So what did you really want Alex Rodriguez to say?
I have no problem with anything that he said, although it was funny to me that some of the media members thought they were going to get him to say something different.
There were some dumb questions:
Reporter: Alex, do you remember the first time you injected and what it felt like? … Really?
Reporter: What is the name of the cousin who got the stuff for you and brought it from the Dominican? … Sure. Let me just expose a family member who committed a crime.
Reporter: Would you have admitted your steroid use if you had not got caught? … Ok, I understand the question, but again, we all know the answer to it.
Reporter: Do you think stats from those years should be erased from your records? … Come on, honestly. What did you think he was going to say, and here’s some breaking news, he is not the commissioner of baseball.
I now have heard people criticizing him for reading from a prepared statement. So what, did you really think he was not going to go up there prepared with every answer he wanted to give right out of the gate?
Rodriguez did yesterday all that he can do at this point. He admitted he made a mistake, he knows people will question him and his credibility, and he understands all of that. His past is the past, he has not tested positive for anything since 2003, and oh by the way, he has already admitted more than what we initially knew.
Maybe I am just tired of hearing about steroids, HGH and over-the-counter items, but I have no issues with A-Rod. He messed up, he admitted he was wrong, and he wants to become a person that educates people, and in particular kids that what he did was wrong.
