Jeter Spoke: Okay, Let's Move On

Derek Jeter finally spoke his mind yesterday. I was concerned that he wouldn't come out strongly enough in his public support of Alex Rodriguez. But he did a good job. I'm satisfied. You don't really get that sense in the clip below but, trust me, it was there.

The main story that came out of this informal press conference was that Jeter is angry about being associated with the Steroid Era. He's so angry that he minimized the extent to which PEDs are prevelent in MLB, saying that only the 104 players that tested positive in that, now infamous, anonymous survey used PEDs. That's way too simplistic.

In any case, he's finally spoken so it's time to move on. I'm tired of this whole issue. I'm making a vow: Unless something horrific happens, I will not post another word about PEDs for the remainder of Spring Training.

Let's play ball!
