Alex Rodriguez just finished his press conference.

The New York Yankees star third baseman said using the banned drug that he said he obtained from the Dominican Republic was a “stupid mistake.”

“I knew we weren’t taking Tic Tacs,” Rodriguez said.

The third baseman said a cousin of his injected him with a banned substance in 2001, 2002 and 2003. He said his decision to use what he called an “energy boosting” drug was purely ignorant..

“We consulted no one. It was pretty evident that we didn’t know what we were doing,” Rodriguez said.
