'Roids ruining baseball

Who’s going to be next? Alex Rodriguez admitted he used some type of performance-enhancing drug between 2001 and 2003 when he was with the Texas Rangers, he just can’t admit to knowing exactly what it was he used. So, what does Major League Baseball do now?

A-Rod, now with the Yankees, joins many, many other players who have used steroids. Barry Bonds says he didn’t, Roger Clemens insists he never touched the stuff, Mark McGwire won’t say one way or the other. Andy Pettitt says he did it to help an ailing shoulder or something like that, Jason Giambi joined the (short) list of one who came clean. Com’on, every player probably has tried something or other.

Did Hank Aaron? Probably not. Mickey Mantle? Babe Ruth? Willie Mays? Roger Maris? More than likely not. The pre-steroid list is probably very long. Would they if they could have? We’ll never know, but one thing we do know is that drug-enhancers are taking their toll on the game today. They’re ruining “ America ’s favorite pastime.” Even Barak Obama admits he’s disappointed in Rodriguez.

Our MLB heroes, who are paid million of dollars, way too much in the first place, to hit home runs at an alarming rate, are no longer to be trusted. That’s my opinion, and I’m sticking to it.

And I am very disapointed in Barak Obama. Actually I am more disapointed in the voters who elected him. No, I am more disapointed in the spineless Senators who call themselves Republican. Mercy!

Yep, it's getting more difficult each year to get interested in baseball. I'll give 'em one more chance this year, but if this steroid stuff keeps poppin' up, I'll have to give up baseball and resort to reading or something like that until football gets going again. - Jim Patterson

Colin, I don't think there's ever been anyone in ever make it to the big leagues. Doug Branscom, I think, may have signed a minor league contract with somene. Other than that I'm not sure.
