New York Yankee Alex “A-Rod” Rodriquez was caught using steroids. Gasp! He and a lot of other players. Last week at a press conference he admitted his guilt and apologized. Big whoop. He’s only sorry he got caught, not sorry he used steroids. And you can bet he wouldn’t have stepped up and apologized if he hadn’t gotten caught.
I’m amazed there’s any discussion at all about whether he should be allowed into the Baseball Hall of Fame. I don’t care how many records he set. I don’t care how many other players were using steroids. Rules are rules. The rules say “no steroids.” The rules apply to everyone. If you break the rules and get caught, you don’t go to the Hall of Fame, period. End of discussion.
