Alex Rodriguez ripped the Astros for not being as remorseful as he was over cheating

In the months since the Astros cheating scandal turned the baseball world upside down, players and fans have been quick to comment about Houston’s cheating, the punishment (or lack thereof) and the team’s apology.

On Tuesday, noted cheater Alex Rodriguez chimed in on the scandal, and he too was disappointed in the Astros’ response.

While calling a Grapefruit League matchup between the Yankees and Red Sox on ESPN, Rodriguez compared his PED use and suspension during his playing career to how the Astros handled their own cheating scandal this offseason.

Rodriguez was hit with a 211-game suspension stemming from the Biogenesis scandal in 2013. This suspension came four years after he admitted to using steroids earlier in his career. On Tuesday, Rodriguez said he deserved that punishment while the Astros seemingly escaped without punishment or remorse.

I’d say this is a bit rich, but I have no idea about what moral codes centaurs have, so…..

ESPN may re-work ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’ but A-Rod is safe

The person making this decision needs to be fired and his exact opposite needs to take his place.

Former New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will be back on ESPN’s “Sunday Night Baseball” next season, but the rest of the broadcast team could be different. ESPN is considering making changes in the broadcast booth next season, according to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post.
