New York Times – Mark McGwire, whose inflated statistics and refusal to address his past came to symbolize a synthetic era in baseball history, acknowledged on Monday that he used steroids through the 1990s.

“It’s something I’m certainly not proud of,” he said in an interview with The New York Times. “I’m certainly sorry for having done it. Someday, somehow, somewhere I knew I’d probably have to talk about this. I guess the steppingstone was being offered the hitting-coach job with the Cardinals. At that time, I said, ‘I need to come clean about this.’ ”

It was an orchestrated confession by McGwire, who first released a statement to The Associated Press, then conducted one-on-one interviews with several news outlets, including The Times. He also gave his first televised interview on the subject — to Bob Costas on the MLB Network.

It took almost a decade, but McGwire finally admitted what we’ve known all along. At this point, I really don’t give a shit. This admission isn’t going to give him any brownie points in my book. His admission comes on the heels of what I’m sure he thought was a perfect storm: Arod comes clean, Phelps gets high, Ortiz is accused, and Tiger hits more holes than one.

Well I’m sorry, Mark, but that’s not how it works. Nobody is going to forgive you now. The hall of fame will continue to leave you out in the cold. The good news is that you still have a hot wife to bang.
