Alex Rodriguez to Face Media Tuesday

Alex Rodriguez, with his Yankees teammates by his side, will follow in the footsteps of Jason Giambi and Andy Pettitte before him. Tuesday, A-Rod will face the New York media for the first time since admitting to using performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-2003.

“When I see him tomorrow, I’m going to give him a big hug and just tell him I’m there for him. I’m going to be a teammate and a friend if he needs one,” Teixeira said.

Wow…I can’t wait to see that picture. Either way, Teixeira, who played with Rodriguez during one of his steroid years in 2003, joined the Yankees this offseason and should form a potent, and hopefully steroid-free lineup.

On Monday, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz took a strong stance against steroid use. He endorses a season-long ban for people who test positive for performance-enhancing drugs. 

Reaction: This should be interesting. A-Rod has probably been trained by his publicists to say all the right things, so it may appear similar to Jason Giambi’s ambiguous press conference in 2005. A-Rod will probably mention that he did it and why he did it, and that everyone else was doing it. Either way, it certainly bears watching…
