     A-Rod called Selena Roberts to apologize for the things he said during the ESPN interview with Peter Gammons. That was nice of him. Haha. He supposedly called her last Wednesday, but she wouldn’t comment until he held his news conference down in Tampa on Tuesday.

Rodriguez said Roberts was “trying to throw things out there that in high school I tried steroids. I mean, that’s the biggest bunch of baloney I’ve ever heard in my life” and that “this lady is coming out with all these allegations, all these lies.”

Rodriguez had also accused her of “stalking” him and of trying to break into his Florida home. A Miami Beach Police spokesman said Roberts did not try to break into Rodriguez’s home.

“The allegations made by Alex Rodriguez are absurd,” Roberts told the MLB Network.

     Obstructed views in the New Yankee Stadium? That’s not what I like to hear. The Yankees spent so much money on this new ballpark, and they couldn’t come up with a way to fix this stuff?

     It looks like there will be support columns going down the right and left field lines on the main level of the stadium. That just ain’t right. Many fans will be putting down a lot of money for some of these seats and they will have obstructed views. These aren’t the best seats in the house by far, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get to see the game like everybody else.

     The support columns aren’t the only problem. The huge restaurant in center field will obstruct the views of  many fans in the bleacher seats. It looks like they will miss out on home runs hit to the opposite side of the ballpark.

Sliding Into Home:

According to people close to the project, the restaurant will “only” obstruct the view of about 300 people. But don’t worry folks, they’re placing TVs on those walls so people can watch what they’re missing in real life. Everyone just loves going to a game to end up watching half of it on TV.

     I can’t wait for the new stadium to open up, but this isn’t encouraging news. I can’t  judge how it will really be until it’s all completed. I will have to see it for myself.

     Sorry for not getting this to you guys earlier, but here is what the Yankees had to say about the Rodriguez situation:

NEW YORK — Having heard Alex Rodriguez’s explanation for his use of performance-enhancing drugs before arriving in New York, the Yankees are ready to turn the page and help the slugger move forward.

Hours after Rodriguez took to the airwaves from his Miami home, pleading his case in an interview with ESPN’s Peter Gammons, the Yankees officially broke their media silence on the topic in a statement dispatched from the club’s New York offices.

“We strongly believe there is no place in baseball for performance enhancing drugs of any type, and we support the efforts of the Commissioner to continually improve the testing process,” the statement read.

“We urged Alex to be completely open, honest and forthcoming in addressing his use of performance-enhancing drugs.  We take him at his word that he was.  Although we are disappointed in the mistake he spoke to today, we realize that Alex — like all of us — is a human being not immune to fault.

“We speak often about the members of this organization being part of a family, and that is never more true than in times of adversity.  Alex took a big step by admitting his mistake, and while there is no condoning the use of performance enhancing drugs, we respect his decision to take accountability for his actions.  We support Alex, and we will do everything we can to help him deal with this challenge and prepare for the upcoming season.”

     What Alex did hurt the game a whole lot, but I have already forgiven him. I don’t know if he can ever gain his reputation, get into the Hall of Fame, but I can give him credit for coming out and admitting it. Americans are a forgiving group of people..so I hope we can move on and get back to baseball. This off-season had driven me nuts. It’s to much! Haha

Alex is once again the center of attention…

Obama had this to say:
