A-Roid!!!!!!!!

Pitchers and catchers reporting. It's warming up this week in the NE. Thoughts are turning to America's pastime.


And all we hear about is A-Rod and steroids. That's all they're talking about on the sports talk stations here in NY.


I don't care. I don't want to hear about it. Let's stop talking about it.



OK - I know. I brought it up. But Let's just talk baseball. I don't care what they put into their bodies.


I'm done.

Iím glad they are making a big deal out of it. How can we tell our kids its wrong and then dismiss the major league, where does it stop. We say who cares if itís in the majors, then the colleges and A ball need it to keep up, then the peewees. I say make a case of it and test all of them, give them all time to clean up or get out. It should be more difficult to be our kidís heroes

Your new buddy Joe Torre didn't come off too well with that kiss and tell book.

Don't do it. The Yankees are bigger than A Rod, which is not to say that I have turned against A Rod. Think Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, Pepitone, etc., etc. You can't give up on the Yankees. You just can't.

Also, in defense of A Rod, he has many good qualities that, IMHO, overcome his youthful indiscretion when he was a Ranger. He works hard off the field and hustles on the field. He doesn't stand and watch his home run balls. He is a ball player and a half. I think people get caught up in his pretty-boy, arrogant image and forget what a great ball player he is.

I'm assuming, of course, that he has remained clean since 2003.

Jackass lies about using illegal drugs that enhance his athletic performance and the league leaves him alone.

Young Phelps admits he burned some weed that probably would hurt his athletic performance and he gets suspended by his organization.

BS

Not for me.

Smoking a little "weed" isn't gonna hurt his swimming abilities anymore than drinking a few beers. Do you really think he never smoked pot before he won the 8 gold medals?

Thank you, we'll take you on our side. Go Dodger Blue.

The Dodgers are a classy organization, and we love Joe Torre.

We also have the best broadcaster in the history of professional sports: Vin Scully. He came with the team from Brooklyn in 1959, and he's still calling the games.

In 2009, the ASA named him the top sportscaster of all-time on its list of the Top 50.

In both cases, the league/organization took the course that coincides with their financial interests. Phelps' suspension comes at a time when there won't be any big events needing his services, so they lose nothing and can claim that they got tough.

So, to be the "highest paid" baseball player, he had to junk himself up. And, gets no punishment whatsoever. Yeah, that's what I want to teach my kids.
