If you’re a baseball fan (or not) would you consider taking steroids and breaking baseball records cheating? Or merely using the latest technology? Is it anymore “cheating” than eating right, working with weights, and getting enough sleep? I mean, its not our fault that Babe Ruth was a slob, or Mickey Mantle was a boozer, is it?
Some have said steroids really don’t make that much difference. Others like Jose Canseco say they doubt that they would have ever stayed in pro ball without them. Some say it’s the difference in a long fly ball and a home run. Others point to increased confidence, shorter recovery times, and unbelievable differences in every aspect of the game with steroids.
What do you, as a fan who uses or doesn’t use the latest technology available think? Ruth never had to play a night game, or travel the distances today’s player does. As the home run record gets closer to falling what do you say?
