Reports came out last night that linked steroids to Mark McGwire in the 90’s. Baseball’s nightmare is becoming a reality. It would be incredibly deflating if it were true that Big Mac was on the juice. Right now it is only circumstantial evidence. This report that links him to dealers, and seeing current pictures of him in which he looks like he shrunk in half. I can’t say that I have been too confident in him being clean. All the other alleged ballplayers that denied it initially have later recanted or justified their indiscretions. It sucks because that home run chase of 1998 was one of the best sports moments in history, but it could be undone…if it isn’t already.
Meanwhile Barry Bonds can look forward to battling Ty Cobb as the most vilified ballplayer in the history of the game.
