Fixing Steroids

Posted in Baseball at 3:05 pm by antonello

This goes someway to explaining the issues with the Mitchell Commission.

The Mitchell Commission is a typical Selig manuever: do just enough to cover your ass.  This inevitably will not do enough to assuage those are currently up in arms about this stuff.  Steroid abuse is a reflection of extremely competitive athletes and ownership willing to look the other way just enough for long enough.  The game was rescusitated in the late 90s at the expense of some of its integrity.  This isn't a new phenomenon: every era in baseball has suffered a similar in setback.  I would be much happier if Congress took as much interest in making tobacco illegal as it did steroids
