That being said, when I pay big bucks to whatch these guys play I want to see the best. If some moron wants to shoot himself in the ass so he can give me a better show, who am I to stop him. I just want to know when he goes on it so I can draft him on my fantasy team.
Maybe i'll name my team the Juice Monkeys
I have a different issue with the steroids. I love the history and tradition of baseball; these are, I think, why it outshines the other major sports. All the historical yardsticks are meaningful, and give a strong linkage to the past - Ted Williams is timeless to me not because I saw him play, but because his numbers have held up so well over time. And Cal Ripken's streak was so terrific because so many careers came and went beween he and Gehrig.
I'm a lot more interested when I know that someone has doen something truly meaningful than when I figure he's just a super-motivated guy with good access to a chemist and a fat wallet.
The only thing I find comparable to steroids is Tommy John surgery. Somehow taking tissue from dead people to extend your career erodes a bit of your historical context. It's still not as bad as steroids, though, because it doesn't force your colleagues to take health risks just to keep up with you.
