A-Rod Comes Clean

Alex Rodriquez, New York YankeesAlex Rodriguez admitted to ESPN today that he took PEDs (performance enhancing drugs) in 2003 when he was with the Texas Rangers. Quote from the interview:

“Back then, [baseball] was a different culture,” Rodriguez said. “It was very loose. I was young, I was stupid, I was naïve. I wanted to prove to everyone that I was worth being one of the greatest players of all time.

“I did take a banned substance. For that, I am very sorry and deeply regretful.”

Rodriguez, who joined the Yankees for the 2004 season after a trade from Texas, said “all my years in New York have been clean.”

Rodriguez also said of his 2007 interview with Katie Couric on “60 Minutes,” when he denied ever using steroids, that “at the time, I wasn’t being truthful with myself. How could I be truthful with Katie Couric or CBS?”

Good PR move, A-Rod. Now, let’s win a championship.
