A-Rod Scandle

John CroomContributor IFebruary 27, 2009

Alex Rodriguez has finally admitted to steroids, over the counter use and began to use it from muscle builders to maximize his playing.

Back in December of 2007, A-Rod was interviewed by CBS' Katie Couric on "60 Minutes."

When asked if he ever used steroids, HGH or any other PEDs, he replied a simple, "No."

Asked if he had ever been tempted to use PEDs, he replied, "No."

"I've never felt over-matched on the baseball field. I've always been in a very strong, dominant position," he said. And I felt that if I did my work as I've done since I was a rookie back in Seattle, I didn't have a problem competing at any level. So, no." Said A-rod lying to Mrs. Couric.

When Katie asked Alex if he had ever witnessed any players using steroids or suspected players of using PEDs, he replied, "You hear a lot of things. I mean, I came in the game in 1993 and you heard whispers from the '80s and '90s. But I never saw anything. I never had raw evidence. And, quite frankly, I was probably a little bit too naïve when I first came up to understand the magnitude of all this."

A-rod was seen many times after his practices with his cousin, Yuri Sucart and used him as his drug smuggler for two years. The question is now shall he remain? Will he be able put this behind him?
