What does his steroid news have to do with Fantasy Baseball 2009?
Get over it moron.
How would you feel if you made one mistake and your gf/wife left you and everyone else said you're undatable?
Oh wait, you're probably a single loser warming up Delissio in your oven and eating it all by yourself.
Between 2001-2003, steroids and other performance enhancing substances were not prohibited by the MLB office, that was why the 104 players that tested positive did not receive punishment. A-Rod tested negative since 2004, and there is no report stating otherwise.
Need less to say, using steroids or any other performance enhancing substances should be frowned upon (to put it mildly) regardless they are illegal at the time or not (based on MLB regulations). It shouldn't be condoned, and I'm glad the authorities are giving more effort to prevent it.
And then there is the issue where A-Rod stated on CBS in 2007 (or 2008) saying he has never used any performance enhancing drugs. Well, lying is something that is frowned upon (again to put it mildly). But it is not an unforgivable sin. We have probably lied countless of times due to stress, fear, ego, or any other reasons. I'm also glad A-Rod has came out clean by admitting the things he had done and lies he had said, even if he's forced by the circumstances.
I think we should put this behind and focus on the "now", and make sure no one else is taking these illegal substances from now on.
That's my two cents. And, no, I'm not a Yankee's fan. In fact, I quite hate the Yankees. And I have no particular preference over A-rod. If I get first pick in this year's draft, I'd go with Pujols, David Wright, and A-Rod would probably be my third or fourth choice. So don't brand me as an A-Rod or Yankee's lover.
