Tea and Sympathy

When times are tough, you just never know who might have your back. Or at the very least, put in a good word for you. Kevin Youkilis may not be a fan of his Yankee opponents, but yesterday he had some kind words for Alex Rodriguez.
“It’s an unfortunate thing to hear that,” Youkilis said. “It’s also a good thing that he came out and admitted it. Sometimes it’s hard to go out there and admit to something in your past. There’s a lot of people in this world who have done something wrong. Myself, I’ve done things wrong, not in that nature.

“But it’s tough. I think it’s tough for people in general in life to admit to some of the things they’ve done wrong.”

“That’s definitely not the case,” he said. “It’s definitely a small percentage. I’ve never done anything like that in my life and I plan on never doing it.”

“I don’t know if someone had it in for him,” Youkilis said. “It seems like just to take one name out of that group is a little odd. The whole thing is kind of unfortunate. Some of the players were betrayed (when the confidential results were leaked).
Very cool comments from Youk. But Joba will still throw at your head.

There are plenty of people in agreement with Youkilis concerning why only one name was revealed of the 104 on the list. And we should clarify that 104 count. There may not be 104 individuals on the list, because it's a compilation of more than one test. So some names could be on the list multiple times.

We want to know what you think. Our new poll asks if you think the remaining names should be revealed. Donald Fehr of the MLBPA of course does not, being that all of this information was supposed to be confidential. As for us, yeah, we want to know!
