Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens are back in the headlines for their past usage of steroids and whether or not they lied to congress….
Honestly, after this long, it has turned into a waste of time and resources for everyone involved. Why is it so important for the government to prosecute Clemens and Bonds? They shouldn’t have even had to testify in the first place. At the time they used steroids, they weren’t banned by the Major Leagues. More so, the government should not be involved in baseball’s affairs anyways. Don’t they have bigger problems than Bonds’ growing hat size? How about we forget the 90’s and early 2000’s ever happened and let these guys live their lives. I mean, don’t you think they have suffered enough? They are no longer going to be Hall of Famers, their legacy is shrinking, not to mention other shrinking things they have to worry about.
My vote is to move past the worst period in baseball history. Its time we return to baseball being our national pastime. With football in turmoil, the MLB has a chance to recapture its rightful title. It is in their best interest to try and make this disappear. Lets finally turn the page on the past because we may just have the best hitter in the history game playing right now.
I’m pretty sure Roger and Barry (and Greg Anderson) would agree with me right about now.
