Letter: Cheaters like Alex Rodriguez have no legacy beyond failures
The only immortality that A-Rod will ever have is that he is a cheater. His ego still doesn’t allow him to come to terms with that fact.
This year even Yankee fans remained silent because they were embarrassed that their .250 cheater-hitter was better than what they had on roster.
No one will remember A-Rod other than to remember MLB’s period of endorsing other cheaters like Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa and Rafael Palmeiro.
They mark an embarrassing period of MLB, when they looked the other way for long-ball home runs, and to put fans in the seats.
