I'm sure most of you are just as tired of hearing about A-Rod and steroids at this point. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a television set with an A-Rod story. Everybody has his/her own opinion about baseball and steroids - should asterisks be put next to the "records?" Should these players be suspended for life? Should we not even care at this point?
I've heard quite a few players in the media say things like, "Well, just because this and that guy did steroids, doesn't mean everyone did steroids," or "I'm so upset with these players who admit to using steroids, because now everybody thinks I did steroids too."
Here's how I react to this - if those players who haven't been "cheating" have a problem with this, why not step up to the plate (no pun intended)? Seriously, stand up to the union that allowed this to happen, and have protected these players for years, even though they knew for a while about it. This union is for all players, right? It's not just for juicers, is it?
Better yet, why not put together a group of non-cheaters who voluntarily take blood tests to prove they are clean? This way, you guarantee to everyone that you haven't taken steroids of human growth hormones, right? Seriously, why isn't this happening? If indeed the majority of players are not "cheating," then why aren't they banding together to make sure nobody else cheats? Something isn't right.
