Mark McGwire Admits to Steriod Use

Jan 11, 2010

In the least surprising news of the newly turned calendar year, Mark McGwire admitted to using steroids. He finally addressed the past, which he did not want to talk about during the Congressional hearing.

The timing couldn’t have been better, as far as the Cardinals are concerned, as he doesn’t bring the distraction to Spring Training. He is the team’s new hitting coach.

I once vilified McGwire and all of the steroid users, but to me it’s hard to single a couple people out in such a tainted era. If you say “I told you so”, please direct it at the era and not Big Mac. At least he finally came clean unlike Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and the hundreds of other players that used.

    I agree. The whole era is tainted, and there’s plenty of blame to go around including from the owners and front office, too. Singling out people serves no purpose now.
