I am so glad Alex didn't waste anytime in speaking out. Sure, I am disapointed, but at least he seems to have came clean and didn't hide behind the players union. His interview with Peter Gammons seemed to me to be sincere. His reaasons for trying these performance enhancement products seem to go along with his personality. He wanted to please everyone and live up to his contact. The way I see it is, everyone makes mistakes and deserves a second chance. Hey, he must have misremembered when he was on cbs a couple years ago.
For everyone that says he is only coming clean now because he is being called out, of coarse your right. I even heard if he was such good friends with Andy Pettitte why didn't he sit up there with him when he came clean about the HGH and say he used steroids. Why on earth would anyone admit to something like this when you have as much at stake as Alex did. Maybe I'm not honest either and this is why I sympathize with him and believe I would not have done anything different. So, I will wear my #13 jersey come opening day and not look back, because what happened in the past is done and over with now it's time to move on bring a World Series to New York.
