It’s easy for fans to complain about what columnists have to say about Alex Rodriguez. But check out what former teammate Jamie Moyer had to say about his admission of drug use.
“Who’s going to believe him?” Moyer said. “What credibility does he have now? The guy has a ton of talent,” Moyer said. “Why does he need that? Money? The expectations that came from the contract?”
The Yankees have little choice but to support Rodriguez. He is their teammate and an important part of the team. But, privately, some feel the same way Moyer does.
When such a supremely talented player resorts to drug use at a young age, it leaves every player in the game under a cloud of suspicion. For those players who made the decision not to cheat, it won’t be easy to forgive Rodriguez.
“It’s almost embarrassing to say that you play because of things that have happened and how they’ve been handled,” Moyer said.
Moyer has 22 years in the game and 246 wins. There is no questioning his credibility on a subject like this.
