Andy Pettitte advises Alex Rodriguez to “get everything out”

Andy Pettitte

Andy Pettitte knows what it feels like to be caught using performance enhancing drugs. Sure, the reason he used them was a completely different reason from how Alex Rodriguez used them, but the feeling of being caught has been there for the both of them. The same situation, but with different outcomes; Andy Pettitte admitted his wrongdoing and apologized, earning sympathy and forgiveness from majority of the Yankees fan base. Alex Rodriguez continued to lie about his PED use until reports from the DEA confirmed Rodriguez admitted to using steroids under oath.

So with the truth of Rodriguez using PED’s surfacing around Major League Baseball, what does Andy Pettitte think Rodriguez should do?

“Just get everything out,” Pettitte said of Rodriguez while attending the 12th annual Safe At Home Foundation gala. “You know what I’m saying? Everything has to be out, or it seems like something’s always chasing you around. That’s just the best way to do things, I think, the easiest way to do things.”

You’ve heard of the saying, “the truth shall set you free”, and in Pettitte’s case it worked for him. Rodriguez on the other hand is going to have a tough time earning redemption considering he’s lied about it for so long. But the only thing Rodriguez can do at this point is apologize to the fan base for lying about it for so long. There’s no use in denying it, especially with the truth out in the open.

    The Yankees should eat ARod's contract and set him free. He's not worth the price of a ticket.

    • It's funny you say that because people love going to see Alex Rodriguez. Yankees attendance was way down in 2013, but it was up in a huge way after A-Rod came off the DL. Love him or hate him, people love going to watch and/or boo A-Rod. There is a reason, after all, that they gave him $275 million.

  2. Celerino says:

    He should let it fly now, so that it will all play out and won't be a distraction in Spring Training.

    The Yankees would have more honor if they never let him step foot in Yankee stadium. Eating his contract is not even that expensive compared to what's already been wasted on our roster. He's so annoying, even years ago.

    • Not only would they have to eat his contract, which is still worth $61 million, but, like I said above, he sells tickets. He sells a lot of tickets. So by just cutting him loose, they would be eating a very large amount of money. Not to mention, he's likely going to be one of the top 3 performers on the team. The offense really struggled over the past two years. It needs all the help it can get.
