McGwire admits 'roid use

Post  Cincy Fan 44 on Mon Jan 11, 2010 8:40 pm

So Mark McGwire finally admits what everyone has known...he used steroids. What's next? Is he going to tell us Obama is president?

I don't think his admission will help him garner any more support for the Hall of Fame than he's received so far (only around 22% of the writer's vote for him of the 75% needed). I applaud him for coming clean, but what took so long?

For my money, anybody that used steroids or Performance Enhancing Drugs doesn't belong in the Hall of Fame. Yeah, I know it's not the Hall of Saints, but really, those that used cheated to gain an edge, plain and simple. I don't care if steroids weren't a banned substance by baseball until recently, but come on, they're illegal for you and me w/out a prescription, so what makes them "okay" to use in baseball (or other sports for that matter)?

Probably part of it was his becoming the hitting coach for ST Louis. Also I heard the Cardinals might sign him again at the end of the season for when, if they get into the playoffs.

I think Scooby's got it. Some guy on ESPN radio was ripping McGwire and how he is only admitting it now because he wants something. I wasn't sure what that something was but if he wants to be hitting coach, that might explain it.

I heard the sound byte. Didn't you guys hear him breaking down? Tears = Sincerity.

He should have to forfeit his HR championship, which would make Sammy Sosa the champ for that year. Laughing

Yea, ballin' like a baby just like Favre. I laughed when he said he would've broke the record anyway. Rolling Eyes

"There is no pill or injection that makes me hit a baseball better."

Actually I kind of agree with that, same with Bonds. Steroids don't help the eye to hand coordination to hit the ball. Put me on all the steroids you want and I would still strike out.

True, no drug is going to help you make contact with a baseball, but it certainly will help you hit it farther!

Yes, warning track flyouts turn into homeruns into the 7th row of seats.
