JeffPearlman.com – Again, I don’t know if Hamilton’s using. I really don’t. But one must be skeptical.
Besides Alex Gonzalez booting a double play in the 2003 NLCS, players gaining or losing weight is the most off putting thing about baseball these days. Every time this happens these blowhard writers or dickheads from ESPN feel the need to ask the same God Damn question. “I wonder if he is/was using PEDs?” Um yeah of course they are using PEDs, they play baseball. Its gotten to the point for me where I just assume all players use them. Makes life a whole lot easier. Is that unfair to the players who haven’t used PEDs? Trick question, they all have. See how easy that was, case solved.
While we are on the subject. Can we please stop saying PEDs? It sounds like something we are not going to find in Iraq or that we are talking Penn St. football. Neither of those things appeal to me.
People need to just accept Roids as an era in baseball. It happened. We are better people for the summer of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. Now as we become fully engulfed in the Moneyball era where OBP% is king, we need to remember the good times roids gave us. My dream is that one day we can tell our children of an era where athletes cared so much they didn’t care what happened to their bodies at the age of 40. God bless you sirs.
And now that I got that off my chest I can go back to not caring about baseball until the Cubs are competitive again (See you in 2016).
PS – I am sure it wasn’t that he stopped doing roids, its that he started doing coke again.
