Major League Baseball has been rocked by the steroid scandels of te games biggest players ie, A-Rod, Barry Bonds, and Manny Ramirez. These players ruined the sport for many fans, and players alike. MLB has done some things but players are still getting cought for using. It is extremley sad!
I personally loved Man-Ram, Bonds, and A-rod. In fact they were some of my favorites. I even own an Alex Rodriguez jersey shirt, I havent worn it since his confession of steroid use.
No these players didn't ruin the game for me, yet, because i belive in the ethic of "Hey if i'm really gonna make it some day I have to go out everyday and work my hardest for the coaches, family members, but most importently THE FANS!".
Maybe with the big money today the players dont want to dissapoint the fans and give them what they paid good money to see. If that is the case someone needs to step up and say it then MLB can work to get a salary cap to not put as much pressure on the players.
Hey, I would rather have no Albert Pujols with my Cardinals, instead of steroids in the game i love!
Mark. Mcgwire. The one who ruined this game more then a-rod, manny, palmero, bonds, andybody! As a Cardinal fan it hurts extremley much to write that, but it is true.
Alex Rodriguez, or my nickname A-Roids. Greatest hitter of the day, set to make the game right, erase Bonds from the history books, set a standard for hard work, yet again baseball fans everywere were devestated. I don't want to admit it but when i first heard of his admission i cried. I truly did. It rocked the sport of baseball!
Manny Ramirez or Man-Ram has born the brunt of the steroid scandel. More then A-rod, more then Mcgwire! Traded from the Bo Sox to the Dadgers he was probably set to be the most celebrated player in 2009, fast forward to May 7, 2009 Manny suspended 50 games by MLB for using PED's. Sad sad day for baseball.
Sammy Sosa. You could basically say the same thing i said for Mcwire: rocked the sport, changed baseball yada yada yada. Still this goes deeper. He hit 60 homers in a season three times. Undoubtly all were years he was using.
Man the OF is rich with players who have used! Barry Bonds the homerun king*, he never used...right? Wrong, a big fat wrong. The games Homerun king* has 762 homers* and if he hadnt used he could be the symbol of great atheletes, but oh well for that theroy! Oh and food for thought he used so much steroids by the time he retired he had to use every pad there was when he batted: elbow, shin, thigh, wrist, shock absorbers, everything.
Roger Clemens the most famous pitcher to use steroids. He almost looked like he was going to eat you half the time! I belive the incident when he threw the bat at Mike Piazza in the 2000 World Series was infact roid rage.The rocket won 7 cy young awards, had 4,672 strikeouts, and 354 wins.
