Since I was 8 and A-Rod was a rookie on the Seattle Mariners, he's been my favorite baseball player and athlete in general. I believed all of his feats were all natural which made me even prouder to be an A-Rod fan. It really hurt me on Saturday when the steroid story came out and knowing that my hero was also a cheater. Even though I feel betrayed by his words and actions, I think it's important to support him. He's still a Yankee, and he's still the best player on the team and a top 5 player in baseball. I know a lot of fans have been split on him whether it's his lack of clutchness or his huge contract but the fact of the matter is the guy's won 2 MVP's since coming to the Yankees, is probably going to be on the team for 9 more years, and may eventually break Barry Bonds' home run record (even though it may not be legit). Unlike Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, he was man enough to admit his mistake and apologize like Andy Pettitte and Jason Giambi who were both forgiven. I'm sure a lot of you may disagree with this but I think as Yankee fans we should still support and cheer for him and if you're gonna boo, save it for when he doesn't hit in the post season .
