Steroids & MLB: Earth to Bud Selig

Spring training is just a few weeks away and once again steroids is the top story in baseball. I’m sick of talking about already but in case you missed it. Over the weekend it was leaked that A-Rod was one of 104 players that tested positive for steroids in 2003.

So now many people are calling for the other names to be released. Curt Schilling is all for it. Saying something to the degree that releasing those names will clear the cloud of suspicion from the players who didn’t test positive.

I say fine release it. But really what does it prove? Who cares those guys didn’t break the league rules. All because Bud Selig didn’t do his job and enact a steroid policy. And those tests were so basic. They didn’t test for the big drug HGH. As far as we know guys are still doping. Baseball still doesn’t test for it. How ridiculous. So while I admire Schilling for wanting to clear the names of those who didn’t test positive, releasing the names proves absolutely nothing.

Hell for all we know A-Rod is still doping. So even if he comes clean about using anabolic steroids in ’03, that does not clear him now. He’s already lied to the public once about juicing. So I expect he’ll eventually release a statement admitting guilt. He’ll say he’s sorry and it was a mistake. He’ll probably also say it was an isolated event. I say bullshit. Until MLB gets tough about testing we can’t believe anyone.

We have baseball itself to blame. Not McGwire, Bonds, Clemens, Sosa, Canseco or Palmeiro. Bud Selig and all the suits profited off roids. It was the steroid era because of the suits. They ignored the cancer when it was a small isolated problem that could have easily been stopped. Then when the cancer spread everywhere and caused them discomfort they tried to stop it by wishing it away. Well Bud Selig, I’ve got news for you it’s time for you to either step down or man up and enact Olympic style drug testing. How can we possibly believe that players aren’t still doping when they can still easily get away with it.

Thanks for the mess Bud Selig. We have an entire era of juiced baseball. With the exception of a select few, the stars of baseball were all juicing. And guess what? They didn’t break any rules because baseball did nothing to stop it. So to the sportswriters of the nation, don’t punish McGwire, Bonds, Sosa and company for baseball’s failure to enact a drug policy.

I say put them in the hall and include all the accusations on their plaque. Then when kids ask their dad how’d Bonds get away with that? Their father can look to their child and say, “Because baseball didn’t do anything to stop him”.

  1. You almost nailed his apology right on. But he actually admitted to using from 2001-03. Who knows maybe he’s telling the truth but then again maybe he’s not. Thank you Major League Baseball.

    Maybe we should write a letter to bud selig that basically says F you. We can write it and then allow people to sign it online like a petition. It won’t accomplish anything but it’d be fun.

  2. Wow I’m watching that interview and this guy is either just plain stupid or still lying. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that he’s still not being 100% honest. He’s just gone into damage control. Anyone that believes him 100% in this interview is an idiot.
