A-Rod a juicer

I'm about as surprised by the revelation that A-Rod took steriods as I was to learn that Roger Clemens was a world-class douchenozzle.  Which is to say, not at all.

A-Rod is a phony, through and through, and he should just come clean.  Don't hide behind the union, or an army of lawyers, or a team of handlers.  Andy Pettite came clean, and the public quickly forgave him. 

A-Rod's legacy is at stake.  If he tries to deny this -- pulls a Roger Clemens basically -- he's going to be ridiculed in perpetuity, and stands no chance of making the Hall of Fame.  He'll go the way of Bonds, Clemens, McGwire et. al. and be driven from the sport.  '

It'll be interesting to see how the Yankee brass responds to this. If memory serves, they encouraged Pettite to come clean and own up to his mistake.  Same with Giambi.  Will they treat A-Rod the same, or will they take the low road and hide by the collective bargaining agreement, too. 

Somewhere Michael Phelps is breathing a sigh of relief.

good point tom..who would have thought the one guy that was always kind of a villian to mlb, always getting a bad rap, etc would be the one to come out shining here. if others would have just come clean right out front, this whole steroids issue, while a concerning one for the integrity of the game, would have been less of a public impact on those that are now guilty, by lying or avoiding it or letting the union/attorneys handle it.
