All Yankee fans from opening day until October are going to have to unite in supporting Alex Rodriguez for the good of baseball and the Yankees. He may be “Soft,” but that only makes him more the product of his era. The way he came out and admitted to using similar to Andy Pettitte could signal the end of this controversy for some time. He appologized, so it is now possible to get past this. It all depends on what he does on the field, and he needs the fans to have his back to do so. In A-Rod’s MVP years, he has come out strong and fans have cheered. This fueled him to do better. If he came out of the gates slow and received Bronx cheers, he stalled, sputtered, and became erratic. When A-Rod steps to the plate on April 16th in the New Yankee Stadium, he needs to know that Yankees fans support him or we’ll all be in for a very long year. Yankee Fans: Think about our team and stand up for the guy even if you are disappointed in him. A ring on his finger will put this in the past until he comes on the ballot for the Hall of Fame in 15 years.

Yankees world is sick!!! A-Fraud admitted that he took ROIDS and that makes it better and Petit, Jeter and the rest of Yankee World needs to support him, we'll Marianno's cousin Ruben Rivera returned Jeter's glove and bat that Jeter would have never used again anyway , but Reggie J, Jeter and the rest of Yankees World did not support him because he violated the saintity of the locker room, what about the saintity of the game? Oh yeah, winning trumps integrity in Yankee World.

Yankees fans need to support A-Rod for the team

We all need to support A-Rod as Yankees fans.  He may be a guy who did something wrong in his life, but he is on our team, and you should always, at lest almost always, support your guy.  This is particularly so in hard times.  That's when it is hard.  When things are going well, it is very easy to support a person.  The true test of character is being able to perservere through hard times and get back to those easy times once again.  I for one certainlt hope for A-Rod to perservere and show all that he is truly a great player and can be equally great in October.

I agree, we now are talking about Pettit starting the first game in the new Yankee stadium because he deserves it even after admitting to using HGH.  We need to give A-Rod the same support.  He screwed up, and now has the next 9 years of his contract to prove he does not need anything to continue to be the best player in baseball history.  Taking him at his word, since 2004 he has been great.  A-Rod, I got your back.
