McGwire on juicing: too little, too late

Maybe you thought Mark McGwire came clean about his steroid use in that interview with Bob Costas, but I'm not buying it.

He uses the old dodge that he took steroids to come back from injuries, not to -- heaven forbid! -- help him jack more homers and pad his totals.

He says he doesn't remember what steroids he took -- this from a professional athlete who probably wouldn't swallow a Skittle or an M&M without knowing what effect it would have on his body.

He says he had good years on the juice and bad years on the juice, which essentially means he's denying steroids played a significant part in his clubbing all those home runs (70 alone in 1998 and 583 in his career.)

Sorry, not buying it. He can shed all the crocodile tears he wants in front of the TV cameras.

I would've had more respect for him if he came out and said: "Yeah, I cheated. I took steroids because I knew they'd make me stronger so I could hit more home runs, which is what they paid me for. I'm sorry I got caught."

But he didn't say that.

He didn't tell the truth -- at least not the whole truth.
