What a waste. Think about it -Bonds, A-Rod, McGwire, Clemens, Palmeiro... all may not make the Hall Of Fame. Crazy. Some of the most prolific players ever to play the game.

On a side note, A-Rod testing postivie adds to the growing circus that is the Yankees, which I love. Pettitte, Giambi, Clemens, now A-Rod... what a buncha cheats.

At this point you almost have to assume everyone in baseball juiced during the height of the steroid era.

WHO CARES?? Enough of this steroid crap already. As Matty said everyone was doing it. The freakin bat boys were probably doing it. Why does the media get a hard on eveytime someone gets caught doing steroids?

And? It creates doubt about if he was juicing while wearing the pinstripes. In '03 when he tested positive he hit 47 homers and won MVP. I'd say that's motivation to repeat the behavior.

A-Rod was the player who everyone said was the "natural." Ever since all this steroid crap game to light, how many times have you heard A-Rod applauded for being one of the few who does it all without juicing? He was supposed to be the guy who would take the taint (and asterisk) off the home run record when he breaks it. Not anymore.

Say "who cares" all you want guys. This is a big deal.

Curt Schilling said pretty much the same thing on his blog(sorry, no link). He wants all 104 or so players that tested positive back in '03 named. He says if you don't start naming all the players it makes all the players guilty by association.

It bothers me even more that he won the MVP that year. Great example to set A-Rod. I lost most of my respect for you when you demanded that 1/4 billion $ contract a few years ago. Now.....F...A-Rod.

re: A-Rod tests positive for steroids

I liked baseball better when 30/100 homeruns/rbi's a season was considered pretty darn good. More hit-and-runs and stolen bases make a much better game than watching some guy jog around the bases.

re: A-Rod tests positive for steroids

What's even "sadder" is the reputation that Canseco is building because of the allegations coming out. I don't know the exact context from his book, but Canseco said he did everything but inject A-Rod when it came to steroids.

But here's what stands out to me:
Quote:
Baseball's drug policy prohibited the use of steroids without a valid prescription since 1991, but there were no penalties for a positive test in 2003.
Why prohibit it if you aren't going to penalize someone for it?!?!? Baseball turned a deaf ear until the public outcry came about, and now these players are going to be the scapegoat. The guys who have taken steroids would have had solid careers anyways, but decided to get that extra edge, and up until 2004, while it wasn't allowed, there was no penalty for it, so why not try to take advantage of the system? It's sad that they resorted to it, but baseball shot themselves in the foot over this.

And as SS said, these allegations make guys like Griffey, Frank Thomas, Edgar Martinez (career .312 hitter), and Fred McGriff look better and better for what they've accomplished.

re: A-Rod tests positive for steroids

MLB is a joke, has been for a very long time. Do people really care about the "sport" of Baseball? I always thought people went to the games to get a nice suntan, drink and socialize with friends?

I hear Manny wants to opt-out of his contract, I wonder if he's on the list?

Well, A-Roid admitted it. At least he was smart enough not to deny. McGwire, Palmeiro, Clemens- all denied it, and they're all jokes now. Pettitte admitted to it right away and no one cares anymore.

cover up is often worse than the crime. Smart of him to just admit it
