I get a kick out of people who get all hot for pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training.
Yeah, grown men playing catch. That’s entertainment.
The revelation that Alex Rodriguez was a steroid-user outraged some. It delights me. It’s good to know that the ballplayer with the best chance of replacing steroid-user Barry Bonds as the all-time home run leader is a fellow ‘roider of the past.
Baseball has an all-time hits leader (Pete Rose) who isn’t in the Hall of Fame and an all-time home run leader who probably won’t be in four years when he becomes eligible.
Over 100 players were outed as steroid users thanks to the Mitchell Report. Those were just the ones that were caught.
Where did all the 50-home run guys go? No one hit 50 last season. How could that be, when it was routine for several years? Brady Anderson did that, for crying out loud.
Sammy Sosa suddenly forgot how to speak English. Mark McGwire has become a ghost. Bonds sneered at everyone in anger as he broke McGwire’s record for single-season homers first, then Hank Aaron’s career mark.
Aaron never hit 50 homers in a year. You’d take one Hank Aaron over 50 Barry Bonds.
Pitchers and catchers are reporting. Thrilling. I hope A-Rod leads the majors in homers this year. Heck, I hope he hits 73.
That might motivate Bonds to make a comeback and try to hit 74. Why rule it out? Better baseball through chemistry, you know.
