Do Yankee fans really care if the players on the diamond use steroids? I know a lot of you are going to say you do, but the players who have been caught seem to have been totally forgiven and everyone has moved on. Am I right?
Andy Pettitte admitted that he used HGH. Giambi admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs during his career. And Alex Rodriguez admitted to using banned substances from 2001 to 2003. Pettitte is still a fan favorite in New York and still remains a beloved Yankee. Giambi was loved by the media and was well liked by his teammates. A-Rod went from rock bottom to the top of the city in a year, and gained a lot more support from the fans after his unbelievable postseason. There’s also Roger Clemens, who we all know took banned substances but he just won’t admit it. I guess you can say he’s the only one we really haven’t forgiven because he hasn’t admitted it.
A lot of Yankee fans bring out the heat on other players for cheating the game, but when it comes to their own team..they defend them.
