I'm not. Now that he'll be the new hitting coach for the Cardinals, he had to come clean just to keep the media off his back so he could focus on his job as coach. It was a distraction and now it's out in the clear and hopefully no longer a distraction.Wow...
Am I surprised he did, no. Am I surprised he admitted to it yes. I am wondering how this will look for the Hall of Fame now.
Oh, it's the fans' fault that players don't follow the rules?When sports fans and owners stop pushing for larger goals perhaps these athletes will not use the steroids.
I'm pretty sure steroids were illegal to use at this time, however, I don't believe HGh was illegal. That's why Andy Pettite didn't really get reprimanded because he wasn't breaking any MLB rules, he just got a bad name.Was it even a rule in MLB at the time all of this was going on? I seem to remember reading this wasn't even against MLB rules at the time.
Generally speaking, I'd think that it's a fair bet that abusing that almost any PED under the sun is illegal--after all, can you name many drugs that aren't illegal to abuse? With that said, I haven't bothered to look into it.That is what I thought....
Was all of it illegal? Steroids I can see but what about the other stuff?
McGwire never lied; he pled the fifth. Not the same thing as lying, IIRC, he never denied he took them.The problem is he lied about it, Pettitte came clean when his name was announced. Clemans, Bonds, Sosa, Palmero all denied it. McGwire is just trying to save face now because he is the hitting coach and wants to get into the HOF. He would have stayed quite his whole life if he could have.
Agreed. He did not lie. Bonds on the other hand....McGwire never lied; he pled the fifth. Not the same thing as lying, IIRC, he never denied he took them.
