["Sports Illustrated" writer Selena ROBERTS†- comments on Rodriguez.] [In 2007, on "60 Minutes," RODRIGUEZ - says "no" to steroid use.] [Yankee FAN - reacts.] [BALCO founder Victor CONTE†- says the government is cheating.]

(Studio: Jeff Glor) Live interview held with "The Yankee Years" author Tom Verducci about the Rodriguez story.
