I am not suggesting he was brave or courageous when he took PEDs and cheated at the game we love.
Nor am I condoning his behavior because, as many have reported, "everyone was doing that."

That took guts.
So let today mark the final time that this Mets blog will talk about ARod and steroids.
Pitchers and Catchers are reporting, the early arrivals are already at Port St Lucie, and we have bigger things to discuss: like the 857,342 discussions of Castillo vs Church for the #2 hole.
Let's allow the Yankees and Red Sox bloggers and the national media to run this story into the ground all year long while we talk about the Mets.
We can test positive for spheroids as well.
