I've got a goal---A-Rod is not going to destroy my spring. He won't. Even though he's made the past 5 years as a Yankee fan more or less miserable I took them in stride. I've never liked the guy, but I never said too much, because he was in Pinstripes.
Now though, no one will be talking about his weird obsession with Derek Jeter (remember the sleepover quote?) or his relationship with Madonna. The report yesterday wasn't real surprising at all. But raises questions. If he took steroids in 2003, why did he go on television telling he never took them?(rhetorical question)
I'm not holding my breath that A-Rod will do the right thing, but he is the brightest star in baseball today, and if he's going to preserve his legacy, he has to come clean with it all. Otherwise, he's just another Roger Clemens or Barry Bond. Who knew that Canseco was right about this one too?
