Rodriguez Admits Taking Performance Enhancing Drugs

Following the news that Rodriguez failed a drug test(Berman Post: Alex Rodriguez Tested Positive For Steroids), he admitted that the story was true in an interview. He said that he was taking substances for three years but does not know what they were. On the one hand it is nice to have an athlete take responsibility for a change. On the other, it would have been nicer for him to come clean before essentially being forced to. The other problem is Baseball wide. The appearance is that the sport is full of dopers, and that may be the reality. They have to do something to to get beyond that. Public drug testing for every player starting next season? What to do to the record books presents another delima. Should the records broken/set by suspected or confirms have an asterisk next to it (or a needle) with the message "record may have been set with the help of illegal performance enhancing drugs"? The sport could be in real trouble.
