A-Rod audio from today

Here is some of the A-Rod audio from today. There’s a little wind because we were in an open-air tent. But you can hear what he is saying:

As I’m listening to his comments, he keeps coming back to how young and naive he was when he started using PEDs. Yet A-Rod turned 26 in 2001. That was his seventh full season in the major leagues and he had just signed a record $252 million contract.

The naive defense is hard to justify considering he had played 790 big-leagues, been an All-Star four times and played in three playoff series to that point in his life. How naive could he have been? By 26, you’re an adult by any standard. That part of his defense does not add up.

I think he did well in some parts of his presentation today. But the excuses weren’t needed.
