Here’s What Grinds my Gears today… steroids.
I don’t know whether or not to be ashamed to be a baseball fan today after the culmination of Mitchell and Co.’s investigation. It seems that baseball and dishonesty regarding its players goes hand in hand throughout the course of time.
I don’t know if this will damage the popularity of the game permanently, as has been evidenced in the past, the game has come back from stains of dishonesty. (See: 1919 Black Sox scandal) But never in my life have I ever considered that so many players of so many different teams stretching over a decade would ever have occurred. This is bigger than the Black Sox, Pete Rose or other controversies combined. This will hurt the game forever.
