Save your breath, A-Rod. No one is listening.
If you believe an ounce of the fabricated answers New York Yankee's Alex "A-Rod" Rodriguez fed to the press, then you are extremely gullible. Every answer he gave had transparency and left more unanswered questions.
This press conference begs the question, who really believes Alex Rodriguez?
I half expected him to come out and be responsible for his previous actions, but that wouldn't satisfy his ego. Instead, he ended up beating around the bush, leaving the public with more questions than answers.
Why can't he just solve his problems by admitting that he took steroids and that he was wrong to take advantage of illegal substances for his own gain?
Why couldn't he say he was sorry for misrepresenting Major League Baseball?
But Rodriguez can't show modesty or humility. So instead he claims he was 24 or 25, and that naivety and stupidity was the reason he took these illegal substances.
According to him, he was not given a chance to "grow up" properly. A-Rod blamed his missed opportunity to go to college on why he did not mature properly.
What kind of pathetic excuse is that?
If you look at his stats, you can easily see he was not 24 or 25 for that matter. He was 27, 28, and 29, respectively.
If you haven't matured enough to realize you're taking steroids illegally to better yourself at that age, then you surely have problems beyond the aforementioned.
He is a liar, a cheater, and uses the generic, typical excuse we as fans have come to expect from professional athletes. The "it wasn't my fault, I was unaware, blame someone else" method of covering up your guilt by excusing yourself from any knowing involvement in it.
Whoever votes for him ranging from the All-Star Game to the Hall of Fame is as gullible and pathetic as A-Rod himself.
