ARod Or ARoid?

What an unfortunate unfolding of events surrounding Major League Baseball, the use of steroids and one of the game’s marquis player Alex Rodriguez this past week.

It’s sad the grand game of baseball has been limited to one of its feature highlights now being “Who’s next?” on the list of steroid abusers. Baseball fans have been forced to accept this practice as a daily course of business as usual. Unfortunately, the practice will probably never cease until MLB starts eliminating records as a result of these offenses. That’s probably not going to happen any time soon.

I ran across a post by journalist Mark Hyman that perhaps sheds an even more devastating light on this most recent chapter in the “Steroids in Major League Baseball” saga. What message are players like Alex Rodriquez sending to the youth players? It is so unfortunate that the good this guy has committed and the largesse of his abilities are completely mitigated by his admission.

Take a look at Mark’s post and draw your own conclusions --
