That’s what the Red Sox fans will be chanting this season. Alex Rodriguez was discovered to have used steroids in the 2003 baseball season. The year he won the MVP. Go figure. This guy has been hounded about steroids for years, and it all comes clean now. He says he is sorry, but is he really? I sort of don’t believe him. Another Michael Phelps. Another sports star going down the drain. This will make his career one of those with an asterisk. All these guys discovered to have used steroids could create a new category in fantasy sports. Positive Tests. This would result in immediate disqualification of this player from the league, and all gained points by said player would be nullified. Seriously. Let’s get real here, people. Steroids are wrong. I’m tired of this junk of, “Oh, I injected him a couple of years ago.” Blah, blah, blah ,blah, blah. MLB should automatically ban anyone who has used steroids, and also nullify all their personal accomplishments in the game, including, but not limited to, records, personal statistics, etc. Like they never existed. Because, in a way, they never did. 2003 A-Rod never existed. Why? Because the A-Rod who used steroids became a different A-Rod. A-Rod pre-2003 died. A new man was born. And he was called……

    I’ve got to disagree with you about A-Rod being “another Michael Phelps.” What Phelps did was certainly dumb, but it didn’t give him an unfair advantage over his competitors, and he hasn’t been lying about it for years.

    Excellent post! Couldn’t agree more … cheating does not earn a place in the history books along side those who earned their records fair and square.

    does this mean A-Rod didn’t naturally get twice as huge over the last few years?

    Yes, you are right. The comparison is unfair. Thx for pointing that out.

    Yeah, the A-Rod turned A-Roid hurts the heart. Imagine how my generation feels about OJ… Gotta research your role models…and keep your distance…knowing they are just people, too.

    Why aren’t there more athletes like Kurt Warner, who sadly just retired? Here’s a guy who’s a devout Christian, a lovable person, and he’s scandal-free. The world needs more Kurt Warners.
