Barry Bonds is all up in arms (again) about the use of steroids in baseball. Others are all uptight about the sanctity of records from a time when there were no steroids in baseball. Frankly, I don’t see why we care.
Obviously there is a call for steroid use. If there wasn’t, why would anyone do it? Why would these guys be pumping up – be it on their own or with some assistance – if there was no call for the results of their actions? And that’s the problem. You don’t want steroids to tarnish the game, fine. Be content to sit around and watch a handful of hits and the occasional rarity of a home run.
You want to go to the ballpark and watch ’em hit into the seats with some regularity, you know the cost. Deal with it already.
