Posted Tuesday January 14, 2014, About: A-Rod missed a chance at 50 games
MLB does and rightly should have blood on their hands as well. MLB realized a couple decades ago that baseball was a hurting product. The owners AND the commissioner not only knew about steroid use, it was accepted and probably more. In an interview, one former player actually told of different types of steroid being held in bowls openly in the Texas clubhouse at one point. And lets not be naive, MLB made BILLIONS of dollars of players like Sosa, Rodriguez, Palmeiro and McGwire. If it wasn't for the roided out McGwire and Sosa in 1998, where would baseball be today??
I agree that A-Rod should be banned for life. Braun should have been banned for longer. MLB is doing a good job now of trying to eliminate steroids from the sport. Although, any records should be accepted just like MLB accepted steroids into the sport. And I believe that MLB should admit to their part in the steroid era as well. If they want the players to be true, MLB should hold themselves to the same standard.
