We’ve all heard of Roger Clemens and Manny Ramirez and their “alleged” flirtation with performance enhancing drugs (PEDs). We know about Andy Pettitte (just seems like an inordinate amount of t’s in his name), and his admitted drug abuse in order to get a leg up on the competition in Major League Baseball.
Alex Rodriguez has been called “A-Roid” more times in a season than there are pennies in his ridiculously bloated contract. PEDs were, and probably will continue to be, a big problem in the big leagues.
With that in mind, I have researched a few excuses provided by the rule-breaking players and here are a few that caught my attention.
Unfortunately, there are plenty more cheaters and excuses out there, so please share them with me in the comments section.
Also, let me know your thoughts on PEDs in the MLB.
Do you think the game should just allow them? Would it be a better game for the fans if the players could legally juice? Should it be their choice since it’s their body? Let me know. Thanks.
