From the New York Times:
Rafael Palmeiro said Tuesday he still doesn’t know how steroids got into his body and is unsure whether he wants to continue playing baseball.
The former Baltimore Oriole, speaking publicly for the first time since last season, said:”I think it is an unfair thing to expect me [play] at the age of 41, 42, the way I did when I was 30. But maybe if I have some solid years and don’t test positive, they can say he went out and hit [well]. Maybe that’s what I can do. I love baseball and I’d like to play forever, but there are other things that are important.”
He mentioned his two sons, 15 and 10.
“There are things I have to weigh,” Palmeiro said. “Baseball needs to be second to my family. I want to see what options I have. If there’s something that’s intriguing, I’ll do it.”
And what might he find intriguing?
“The Yankees would be intriguing,” he said. “But the Yankees seem to be maxed out.”
Please Rafael, find your intrigue somewhere else.
