Alex Rodriguez is a cheater. That is a fact and it is accepted by pretty much the entire sports universe — baseball executives, writers, broadcasters and fans. A cheater?
“I’ve got my own feelings on particular people in MLB, you know, how they approached my situation,” Roger Clemens said. “I don’t know about it, and I don’t care about it, to tell you the truth.”
It’s been a lot to digest — that’s for sure. In question-and-answer form, here is a look at the issues and implications of Major League Baseball’s possible suspension of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez is done. Make it easy on yourself, A-Rod, and go away. Let the pastime shed the past you did so much to stain. On June 6 I called for A-Rod to retire, and was told my logic was laughable. Not so funny anymore, is it?

Rocker is still making noise, a decade after the disgraced pitcher last played in the big leagues.
A-Rod’s controversial offseason could soon involve a courtroom.
Alex Rodriguez’s only World Series ring is up for auction, although Rodriguez himself is not the one who consigned it.
Another PED scandal has been “quietly revisited,” and it also involves Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, according to the New York Daily News.

“My denials in the book have been documented all the way back, I believe, to 1997,” Piazza said. “I just don’t understand what part of ‘no’ people don’t understand.”
Piazza was perhaps the greatest-hitting catcher that baseball has ever seen. We’d like to assume that he was clean. But we can’t.
“Don’t write the freaking book of you’re not gonna come out and you’re not gonna talk about it,” WFAN co-host Boomer Esiason said Tuesday.
“In my opinion — I want to be very clear about how I present this, OK? — if you don’t think that Mike Piazza did some type of steroid, you are crazy,” WFAN co-host Craig Carton said Monday morning.
