It’s a wonder every major leaguer isn’t cheating. Where’s the penalty? Did the Yankees void the contracts of Jason Giambi or Alex Rodriguez when they were found to be cheaters? Did the Angels void the contract of Gary Matthews Jr., after he was caught having steroids shipped to his home? No, of course not. They still collected the money even though they committed fraud.
Even Roger Clemens is looking for one more payday. He turned in his AARP card and is pitching for some minor league team in Texas. I would not be surprised if he gets invited to spring training next season and makes a few more million.
...What he should have said really is that “baseball statistics are meaningless and we really only keep them for fantasy league managers.”
If Cabrera gets to keep the batting crown, if Ryan Braun gets to keep the MVP because of a technicality, then why even prohibit the use of steroids? They obviously work, right?
I mean how else can you explain how Melky Cabrera went from being a scrub to a superstar overnight?
The good ones, you know the kind that make you bigger, stronger, faster. The ones he was suspended for using and branded a cheater. The ones that allowed him to win the batting crown and probably a nice, big, fat payday next year.
