A-Rod = A-Fraud What should his punnishment be? What a disappointment!

Is he telling the truth now?  How can we believe him?

ALEX Rodriguez has admitted that he used performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-03, saying he did so because of the pressures of being baseball's highest-paid player.


"When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me and I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day," the New York Yankees star said in an interview with ESPN that was broadcast shortly after it was recorded.


Rodriguez, who for years has denied using steroids, was given a $US252 million, 10-year contract by the Texas Rangers in December 2000.

His admission came two days after Sports Illustrated reported he tested positive for steroids in 2003, one of 104 players who tested positive during baseball's survey testing, which wasn't subject to discipline and was supposed to remain anonymous.

I thought that the president's comments that maybe this will teach our kids that there are no short cuts was the message that we should take away from this. 

One-by-one the athletes that are up on the pedestal fall...it is sad for all of us, but should make us evaluate whether or not they should be on such a pedestal to begin with!

I would say his punishment would be he had to give the money back and marry Madona.
