A-Rod Admits To Steroid Use!

| Filed under: DrugsZportzMedia MinuteAlex Rodriguez


As we mentioned a few days ago, reports broke this weekend that New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids use back in 2003. Well, now the multi-millionaire is speaking out and CONFIRMING his use of the 'roids!

A-Rod told ESPN on Monday that he did take the drugs while he was playing for the Texas Rangers. It apparently happened during a three-year period which began back in 2001. Says the liar, "When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day."


Adding about baseball 8 years ago, he says that "Back then, it was a different culture. It was very loose. I was young, I was stupid, I was naïve. I wanted to prove to everyone I was worth being one of the greatest players of all time. I did take a banned substance. For that, I'm very sorry and deeply regretful."


And his apology continued with, "I had just signed this enormous contract I felt like I needed something, a push, without over-investigating what I was taking, to get me to the next level. I am sorry for my Texas years. I apologize to the fans of Texas."

However, A-Rod claims he's now clean. How can we believe him, though????

Back in 2007, during an interview with Katie Couric, he claimed he had never used 'roids. LIAR!! Now his excuse about back then is that "at the time, I wasn't being truthful with myself. How could I be truthful with Katie Couric or CBS?"

Wonder if he's ever lied about anything else? Like his "friendly" relationship with Madonna?

    A-Rod = A- Fraud = A-Roid
    I read in the newspaper that A-Rod's teammates call him A-Fraud behind his back. :-(

  15. 15

    who cares of course he did them
    all of the major sport players do steroids
    I wonder what ever happened to Marion Jones
    so is his career over now?

  16. 16

    You gotta give it to this *player for choosing to fess up during the Chris Brown/Rihanna scandal. Nice curtains to hide behind Mr.* lol

  17. 17

    ONce a douche, always a douche….

  19. 19

    Wonder if he's ever lied about anything else? Like his "friendly" relationship with Madonna?

    Re: john holmes
    don't you think the erectile dysfuction could have been because you were carrying around so much MEAT?

  21. 21

    who gives a shit….

  22. 22

    no shit. every good baseball player has used steroids at some point.

  23. 23

    I can't believe this Mario-next your going to tell me that Jose Concesco and Barry Bonds used steroids as well!

  24. 24

    Re: RedWingsFan – Amen! Like we all haven't known this forever, it seems. Maybe Perez is hung over today, cause his "news" seems a little past dated!

    Re: guilty of being white

    what do you call a fat chinaman?


  26. 26

    OMG!!! I am from Dallas and when he played for the Rangers he sucked. No one could figure out why he had such a high price tag. LIAR!!!

    Madonna probably hooked him up with the kind steroids. God knows that bitch is juiced like a mother fucker!

  29. 29

    yea, fuck him for doing the right thing and coming clean

  30. 30

    thanks for posting last friday's news.

  31. 31

    He's such a puke..Baseball should completely get rid of any loser who used steriods . Gone from the record books and baseball history. i.e Sosa, Bonds etc…Now if they would clean up the NFL which NO one seems to care about steroid use. madonna must of dumped him because he probably has E.D. Good! serves ya right Ass Rod!!

  32. 32

    Re: mamajud – ( WINK!)

  33. 33

    Who cares? Who hasnt used any sort of roids? Everyone has. I hate it when these primitive topics make huge headlines. There are bigger things to worry about than people using roids.

  34. 34

    As far as I'm concerned, the only baseballers capable of telling the truth about 'roids was Canseco Also, a player who speaks honestly and gets crucified is Gary Sheffield.

  35. 35

    liar liar pants on fire!

  36. 36

    Roids are good! :o )

  37. 37

    he has to be on steriods…….


    he has to be on some kind of drugs….

  38. 38

    Re: Charmer – True but he always sticks to his holy trinity-Madonna,Lady Gaga and Miley.

  39. 39

    he is like ARTIE LANGE….

    Wow, the man lied about something that was not THEN illegal in MLB; so what? It's not like all of us haven't lied about something. Get over it.

  43. 43

    although i don't like aRod, steroids were not illegal in baseball when he tested tested positive.i will say that admitting it is a good start and it will stop him from getting into the hall of fame.

  44. 44

    Perez stay out of sports. You're unknowledgable and sound stupid and rarely get it right. What he did today was UNBELIEVABLE. Noone has copped to using steriods without blaming injury, the league, trainer, etc. A-rod may be a giant fucking douche but i gained alot of respect for him today. WHY DON"T YOU WATCH A FUCKING INTERVIEW INSTEAD OF CUT-AND-PASTING ONTO YOUR PRETTY PINK SITE FOR ONCE. IT MAY GIVE YOU A LITTLE BETTER PERSPECTIVE. p.s. regardless of what you say i'm still a junkie for your news, maybe i'm the douche

  45. 45

    Once you get near Madonna your livelihood and life goes to shit. That old bitch Madonna is cursed.

    A ROID!

    Re: redsox1010



  47. 47

    If a person wants to use steriods and have their dick shrink and become an agressive asshole..let them. I don't buy the "well they have to be a role-model for children" thing. Don't villify the steroid taker…just villify the steriods. People have choices in their lives and if taking these chemical hormones is their thing…let it be. At the same time, be aware of the harm that you are doing to your body and your relationships.

  48. 48

    Does anyone out there know IF his reason for taking drugs was, he said?
    "Come on now, you have seen Madonna, do you really think anyone could sleep with that corpse if they were not drugged up" ? give me a break, I kept my eyes closed as tight as I could but I could still smell that rotting taco?

  49. mint says – reply to this

    A-Rod has been able to survive so much bad press- his "friendship" with Derek Jeter, his questionable over-the-top salary, the strippers and girlfriends, his divorce and his relationship with "soulmate" Madonna, but the steroid story will be the one to finally bring him down. Sad………….

  51. 51

    His Yankee salary could build a new stadium! What do you say to ya kids? Take roids, you will have a weak pecker but a full purse?!

  52. 52

    when katie asked him ? did you ever use roids ? "
    his body language gave him away ,
    he looked up and away to the side……..
    a typical sign of a LIAR .
    yes, probably he and madonna do roids together or he supplies her with the doctor, drugs, whatever needed.

  53. Toby says – reply to this


    What a jerk. I live in Seattle and when he first started his career has a Mariner he was great. He was Alex…humble, kind, approachable. The year before he left Seattle his true self started to show. He was now AROD and as arrogant as one can get!!! I wish they'd suspend him for at least a year! What a looser!!!!

  54. 54

    i wish he would come out

    im pretty shure hes gay my gaydar is going off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  55. 55

    I still he's hot. Besides, it's been my experience with men that they are all liars and cheater, so it was to be expected.

  56. 56

    I sure Hope he has to Pay for this Somehow!!

    Look at All the Shit Michael Phelps got for smoking pot on his own time in the past - He did NOT Cheat & Enhance himself for the sport he is in!!

    A-Rod is not the Athlete he pretended to be!!

    Shouldn't ALL of his Records be Voided????

  57. 57

    I hate A Rod, but at least he didn't pull the dirtbag Clemens route. He's making excuses but he's saying he did it.

  58. 58

    Re: RedWingsFan – No. NO! Barry Bonds is and always was clean. Always, always, always.

  59. 59

    At least he didn't say "If I took a banned substance, I'm sorry"

  60. 60

    I said I wasn't going to defend him anymore, but now I can't help it. He was very wrong in what he did, but now he's owning up to it… unlike the vast majority of players who get caught. McGwire, Bonds, Clemens, Palmiero… they all vehemently denied it, or refused to say one way or the other. At least Alex had the balls to say "Yeah, I did it. It was stupid, and I messed up." It just makes me wonder how those people who are bashing him would feel if the stupidest, worst thing they ever did was broadcast to the world, and the rest of their life, both before and after their mistake, was judged on that one stupid thing they did.

  61. 61

    Perez, you are a complete waste of space.
    You know that right? I am not telling you anything new. I have even blogged how much the world hates you. snarkhunters dot com slash perez. How do you feel about being the object of hatred and scorn?

  62. 62

    This really pisses me off. He tested positve in 2003, when popping positive on a test was not punishable at that time. He also took this test under the fact the results would be anonymous. Whoever the reporter was that leaked this information out, should be fired! This person violated a BIG patient confidentiality law! This was none of our business, and it happend at a time when it wasn't banned. Leave these ball players alone!

  63. 63

    Perez, did you even watch the interview? He wasn't making excuses. The interviewer asked him WHY he did it, and he explained what he was thinking at the time. He never made an excuse for his behavior, and he repeatedly said "This is nobody's fault but my own. There is no excuse for what I did, and I was an idiot for doing it."

  64. 64

    Re: Emily_Rugburn – He did say, because everyone one else was doing it. I would call that an excuse, wouldn't you?

  65. 65

    Re: poshbabygia – POOR PLAYER!? He makes 100 MILLION a year, he should be punished just like the girl in the olympics was. You sorry saps that feel sorry for these narsistic celebs and sports figures make me sick.
    If you have a job and were tested for drugs, and it showed positve your a** would be fired. So stop with the f**king pity party!

  66. 66

    Once a douche, always a douche.

  67. 67

    Yep, one more person coming out what a cheap, meaningless, insincere apology in hope of keeping his fans. Not working for me, A-Roid.
