A-Fraud and Chipper

Now that it has come out that A-Rod did indeed use PEDs, or at least apparently used them, does anybody else remember these comments from Chipper:

"I think it will follow him," Jones said. "There's going to be the questions because his name's been brought up. If I had to pose a guess on A-Rod, I would say no. But I don't know. He's going to have to answer the questions. And that goes for everybody that approaches the number. It's just so farfetched, the numbers that those guys are putting up. And a lot of it comes from the era that they're playing in."

This quote was from the Lexington Dispatch shortly after A-Rod hit his 500th home run.  As I recall, Chipper took a lot of heat from various sportswriters around the country for this comment. 

I wonder how many of those sportswriters will be apologizing for their irresponsible reporting of what Chipper said (I'm looking at you Jay Mariotti).
