A-Rod on steroids
This is not a real surprise. The guy sitting next to me in the hotel watching the news exclaimed "This is breaking news?" As much as it pains those that are true fans of baseball, I think we are going to have to accept that the accomplishments of this era are not necessarily genuine, realize that there are measure in place and being put in place to crack down on steroids and move on from this and hope that it is not a part of the future game. Unfortunately, we don't know how consistent the enforcement is going to be and players will still find ways to get around it. All we can do at this point is teach to the younger generation of athletes that by doing steroids, you will not perform at the level that shows your true ability and that steroids can have determinantal effects to your health, especially for younger people.
