Continued: Column: Whether he gets a year or life, not much sympathy for A-Rod taking punishment

Whatever A-Rod does, his spectacular fall should be a cautionary tale to athletes everywhere. This was a guy who didn't need to cheat to be great, yet he cheated anyway.

If he's a scapegoat for those before him who were never caught, then so be it. If he never again plays a game in the major leagues, then too bad.

Whatever punishment he gets, he brought it on himself.
