A-Rod Now Faces The Most Important At-Bat Of His Career

Alex Rodriguez is at the plate right now. We're all waiting to see what he'll do.

Most of us want him to hit a home run ("Yes, it's all true. I did steroids and have no excuses for it").

Some of us just want him to get a hit ("Yes, it's true I did steroids, but there was a very good reason for it.").

There are probably a few people out there in the stands who want him to walk ("Due to the ongoing legal investigation related to all of this, I'm unable to comment about any of these allegations right now.").

I don't think anyone wants to see him strike out ("No. I did NOT do steroids. These allegations are completely false.").

Which will it be? How will he approach this at-bat? The pitch has already been thrown. It is the nastiest curve ball Alex has ever seen. Some would argue that it's a spitball. But it doesn't matter. Whether he likes it or not, Alex has to stay in the batters box and have whatever he thinks is a representative at-bat.

Update, 1:28 PM: Per Mike Francessa on WFAN, Alex Rodriguez will break his silence tonight with Peter Gammons of ESPN. He'll make a statement and will then sit down with Gammons.

Update, 3:23 PM: Alex admitted steroid use to Gammons a short while ago. I'll be glued to to Sportscenter at 6PM Eastern for the full interview.

I don't know if his admission was a home run or a hit as I'm still a little skeptical of some of the details he provided. I'm glad he did it though. I think it was the best thing for himself and for the Yankees.
