A-Rod’s name was leaked on Saturday. His name was on a list of 104 players who tested positive for steriods.
Now, what about the other 103? Isn’t it fair that we know who they are. Why should A-Rod alone be kicked under the bus?
Some of the other players in the game, past and present weight in the debate:
“It’s definitely not fair to just pinpoint one guy,” Boston’s Kevin Youkilis said of his Yankees rival. “I don’t know if somebody had it in for him. I don’t know what because it seems like just to take one name out of that whole group is a little odd to me. If he was named with 10 other players, would that have been fair? I don’t know? If they’d have listed all 104?”
Hall of Famer Goose Gossage hopes the list becomes public.
“I want to know who these other 100 guys are,” he said. “Let’s get it all out in the open. It certainly is not fair to A-Rod or to Bonds. They’re dragging A-Rod down.”
The list was court-sealed, but opened when the federal government did its investigation into who had any connections to BALCO. Now that A-Rod’s name surfaced, the list is tainted. MLB and the Players’ Union owes some explainations.
On top of that, MLB needs to clean up this mess, and fast. This is becoming a sick epidemic and the more we find out, the more we can either: feel satisfied or angry at our players/idols.
