Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has an issued an apology following comments he made in an interview on CBS This Morning yesterday in which he said his former teammate Alex Rodriguez should be denied entry into the Baseball Hall of Fame due to his history with PEDs. Posada claims he was "cornered" into making that statement. Posada is promoting his memoir, The Journey Home: My Life in Pinstripes.
Posada took a lot of heat for these comments. It's interesting to see the media come to A-Rod's defense. Could this have to do with the fact that he's playing well and the Yankees are back in first place? It's amazing how nice people are when they see you as a winner again.
