It was a hard time. It was something I would love to erase from my memory.
You set your goals to a point where they're attainable, but far enough away that you have to really go get them. And every year I push my goals a little bit farther away, and every year I work a little bit harder to get them.
I have never used steroids. Period.
I hope that people learn from my mistake and I hope that the fans forgive me.
To snap my fingers and let it go away. Even if it takes the 3,000th hit with it, just let it all go away.
I'm not going to say what was being used in the clubhouse; whatever happens in the clubhouse stays in the clubhouse. But it was not like it was in your face.
Yes, but I - you know, it's been such a long time, I'm sure that I've got cousins and uncles that I've never met before, you know, that I've left behind.
But as far as I'm concerned, I can still play defense.
I don't think anybody ever saw anybody taking anything.
I don't see myself as someone that brings a lot of luggage.
The other deals with my life and my livelihood and my family and all that I stand for.
But I think mainly, you know, just up in the East Coast, it's where it all originated. You know, Philadelphia. It goes back to the beginning. So, you know, fans have a lot of history, and they love their teams up here.

I wish that they had the freedoms like the Japanese and the Koreans and the Mexicans and everybody else that has that freedom to come over here and play the game, because I know Cuba has a very strong baseball history.
I would love to go back and help rebuild that country and help - you know, kind of like what's going on with Iraq right now. You know, they've got a new government in place. They're trying to rebuild the country. I would love for that to happen in Cuba also.
