A-Rod Faces Cameras

No Confession

No Apologies

Alex Rodriguez's new hip must be fully healed -- because he did some serious bobbing and weaving from reporters' questions about the 211 game suspension MLB slapped him with for alleged steroid use.

In a strange pre-game news conference, A-Rod disappointed again by refusing to directly respond to questions about the suspension (which he plans to appeal). The closest he came to discussing it was when he said, "I'm sure there's been mistakes along the way. I'm a human being."

The odd part -- Rodriguez took time to especially thank "Hispanics" for their support. It kinda seemed like he was, y'know ... playing the card.

A-Rod will be back on the field when the New York Yankees play the Chicago White Sox tonight -- and repeatedly said he was only focused on the game.

"I feel like I was 18-years-old back in Fenway in 1994 when I faced the Red Sox for the first time."

Ahh yes, back when he was a rookie ... and still clean. Maybe.

You think he cares. The only money he's loosing is the 211 games. The rest of his contract is well over 60 million that's his regardless of this.

The way baseball writers have been celebrating these roided up freaks for decades is disgraceful, there's nothing great about cheating but the jock sniffers just can't get enough of those lying sacks of crap yeah it's their training and nutrition regimen whatever.
