Because he really had no other choice, Alex Rodriguez admitted to ESPN's Peter Gammons that he used steroids. Too little, too late. A-Rod took a beating in the media over the weekend, including this headline in the New York Post.
Interesting, too, that he came to ESPN and not Sports Illustrated, which broke the story. A-Rod was well-coached for this interview, knowing exactly when to turn on the emotion. It will be interesting to see how he handles the New York and national media once Spring Training begins.
