Everyone attending a MLB game this weekend gets free testosterone (why not?)

August 22, 2012 | Drew Forrester

Melky Cabrera was having a great season before he got busted.  But he wasn’t having a great season because he suddenly started utilizing his talents.  He was having a great season because he decided the rules didn’t apply to him.  That makes him a bum.

The same goes for Bartolo Colon.  He was also having a nice season…because he was using Testosterone.  He’s a bum, too.

They’re creeps, these cheaters.  Every single one of them.

They’re not ruining baseball, by the way.  The multi-year guaranteed contract has ruined baseball.  Signing someone to a 6-year, $100 million contract and having that money be guaranteed no matter what performance is provided in those six years is so unnatural that it can’t do anything but harm the game.  So I’m not here to say steroids and testosterone are ruining the game.

But I’ll tell you what they are ruining.

They’re ruining any thought at all that what these guys do on the field is special.

They are only special if what they’re doing is natural.

Putting a bunch of stuff in your body to circumvent the rules eliminates anything natural about your accomplishments.

It makes you a bum.

So the guys we’re watching these days aren’t anything special any longer.  They make a lot of money, sleep with the prettiest girls, drive the best cars and have the nicest beach houses.  And that’s all well and good…for them.

But they’re not special athletes.

They’re lucky athletes.

Nothing more.

They’re very fortunate that along the way, as they displayed their unique talents, they sold their soul to the devil and he responded by granting them carte blanche to break the rules and create the illusion that what they do for a living is special.

They’re not special.

They’re just bums.

    If Frank Robinson did roids and hormones plus lift weights he’d have 750 homers. That puts all of this crap in perspective.

    The Os ought to give some testosterone to Tommy Hunter for the playoff push, the way he has pitched. Even if he gets caught the suspension won’t take place till next year. Besides, who cares if Hunter got suspended for 50 games

    So right on with these Prima-Donnas, do anything to beat the system until you get caught. That’s why watching the Little League World Series is so enjoyable, just (hopefully) clean kids playing a great game.

  5. The Armchair QB Says:

    This scandalous behavior has the unintended result of casting aspersions on every player in the game today! One can no longer watch a Beltre, for example, hit 3 homer runs in four inings as he did last night without thinking that he might be cheating! In the final analysis, that could deal MLB a death knell from which it may never recover!

    Ha! Come on Drew, they’re not ALL bums!
