Why has steroid use been so prevalent in baseball? Because the players have allowed it. Take this quote from Travelers shortstop Sean Rodriguez in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, for example: “No matter who does it or how they do it, it’s a heck of an accomplishment. You can’t take that away from the guy.”
Really? No matter how they do it? It's very disappointing to hear something like that from a Traveler, but I guess we should be used to it by now as almost every player in baseball seems to endorse this bogus home-run record that was accomplished by cheating.
Yeah, Freddy Sandoval, it's "awesome" that someone would break baseball's most hallowed record through the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
