If David Ortiz Was Being Honest, Why Wait?

David Ortiz held his long-awaited press conference, discussing his reported appearance on the 2003 positive test list.  Ortiz denied involvement with steroids, blaming a tainted supplement.

“I definitely was a little bit careless back in those days when I was buying supplements and vitamins over the counter — legal supplements, legal vitamins over the counter — but I never buy steroids or use steroids.”

Ortiz delayed his response until receiving information about the test from the Players’ Union.  Fair enough.  But, if he had never knowingly taken steroids, why wait to say that?  Ortiz has perfect information.  He knows what he took.  Had he never taken steroids, he would know.

Honesty about steroids needed no delay.  Ortiz was not waiting to be honest.  He was ascertaining how honest he must be.
