What can I say? We all knew it, but confirmation is in. The man is a cheater. Having just finished Juicing the Game and just starting Juiced, I am hyper-aware at this point as to how steroids are affecting baseball. I’ve heard all the arguments pro and con. I even felt at one point that I shouldn’t care. But then I realized that I would care if a guy was doing cocaine every day to get up for baseball. And steroids are probably better than cocaine at making you better at the game. So that did it. Guys doing steroids need to be done. Screw ‘em. It’s cheating. I don’t care if baseball hadn’t banned them yet. They were ILLEGAL drugs then and they’re illegal drugs now. Illegal. That’s all I need. So Barry, and anyone who defends him, screw yourselves. He cheated, and you’re making justifications. Because the guy bombs.
I saw him take a coveted young pitcher live, well into the bay, and I was pissed. I was pissed because it wasn’t fair. And 40,000 people around me didn’t give a shit. Well, Giants fans, you suck anyway, but screw you too. He cheats. And save the “steroids can’t help you hit a fastball” argument and read the article. It can. Barry himself said so. Eyesight, improved. Reaction time, improved. Case, closed.
