Willie Mays: What, Another Home Run?

You could become a steroid expert, or just watch the game. Are the Boys of Summer abusing steroids?

This issue hits home with the Only Baseball Matters blog, and its writer, John Perricone, who addresses the issue in-depth and fairly frequently. Unfortunately, my only exposure to the long ball was in pick-up games we used to call stickball.

On the other hand, I played several sports in college and high school. Certainly Major League Baseball appears to be making at least a half-hearted attempt to regulate steroid use, but it doesn't seem to be too successful. At least if you believe the tabloids.

This writer's personal view is that steroids or any other performance-enhancing drug ought to be kept out of every sport, just like the Olympics have tried to do. The competitors ought to compete against each other, not a syringe.

Sure, any system any sport tries to put into place will have faults, but at least there will be a system. Those trying to skirt it will eventually get caught, and drummed out.

Then again, on a somewhat different topic, Pete Rose isn't in the Hall of Fame yet, is he?
