“I feel very blessed, and I feel like I had a great journey here the last 24 months,” Rodriguez told Gammons.
Two years ago, Rodriguez was considered a choke artist in October. Last spring, he admitted to the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Since then, he has rehabilitated his reputation and won a World Series ring.
“I am going to be very happy,” Rodriguez said about receiving his ring during the Yankees’ home opener April 13.
“A lot of guys say never wear [the ring] because it’s not cool,” Rodriguez joked. “But I am one guy that is going to be very uncool and wear it for at least 30, 40 days.”
