Not just the Yankees, and not just the Red Sox

Posted on: July 30, 2009 1:37 pm
 
So now when the Red Sox come to Yankee Stadium next week, will the fans chant "You do ste-roids!" at David Ortiz?

Probably.

And when the Yankees go to Fenway Park the following week, Red Sox Nation will chant at Alex Rodriguez again, too.

Let's just be clear on one thing: Steroids never were a Yankees problem, and they're not now a Red Sox problem. No one outside of a few die-hards in New England ever believed that the Red Sox championships of 2004 and 2007 were "clean" or "untainted," no matter how few Red Sox stars appeared in the Mitchell Report.

The Red Sox had steroid users. The Yankees had plenty of them. And so, no doubt, did 28 other teams.

There's not much to take out of the New York Times report today that David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez were among the players who tested positive for use of performance-enhancing drugs back in 2003. But at least we can stop pretending that one team in baseball was somehow untouched by the widespread use around the sport.

No, I still don't do it. I know my mother, and I know she would rather face death than see her son violate his moral standards for her. Steroids wouldn't even cross my mind. While I'd obviously try to make as much money as I can for her, I wouldn't cheat to do it.

I will not break my moral code for any reason. It's more important to me than any amount of money.

I was a Pete Rose fan since the early days.  I am a 50 years of age + fan of the game of baseball.  You have drunkards and such in the hall of fame and you have a few that the only way they made it was though the back door. Voted by the Veterans commitee.  Vote Pete Rose in and place an asterisk.  His talent was superb but he bet on the game he loved.  MLB doesn't condone these actions but, his talent and longevity at playing the game is clearly enough that he should be here with all the greats of the game
