Andy Pettitte was named in the Mitchell report for taking human growth hormone and after previously saying he was clean he came out with the following:
If what I did was an error in judgment on my part, I apologize. I accept responsibility for those two days. Everything else written or said about me knowingly using illegal drugs is nonsense, wrong, and hurtful. I have the utmost respect for baseball and have always tried to live my life in a way that would be honorable. I wasn't looking for an edge; I was looking to heal.
What? "If what I did was an error in judgment"? No! It *was* an error in judgment. You were wrong! And you lied about it! By not admitting that you were wrong, you are not accepting responsibility.
And please, "I wasn't looking for an edge; I was looking to heal." Wrong again! Looking to heal is an edge.
