While people keep ripping into men like A-Rod, McGwire and Bonds, men like Gene Orza and Bug Selig get off without any almost any criticism. Both men are more to blame than any players.
And say why it never worked for me.
Something to do with violence
A long way back, and wrong rewards,
And arrogant eternity.

I used to like the Mets. But then I only lived in America until I was 8 and promptly forgot the whole thing.

My last MLB game was in the summer of '06. I hit up PNC Park to watch the Pirates...and they actually won! A ground-rule double out in left field sent the winning run home. It was pretty awesome.

I've never been to a baseball game that wasn't little league. I've recently started watching Who's Number 1? on ESPN Classic and it's restored my interest a bit.

you don't get points for effort, though.

you do if you successfully complete running the perimeter of a quadrilateral shape, though.

Only if you're actually involved in a game of baseball/softball/rounders though. If you're not, you don't get points at all.

I guess that's why the vicariousness of the Manchester United fan is so wide-spread. People who aren't good at doing anything just let others make them feel good by simply idling on a couch for 90+ minutes.

He took "performance enhancing drugs" from 2001 to 2003. He also claimed in his interview with Pedro Gomez that he didn't know what he was taking. Yeah right.

He denied doing it on national television which is the sad thing, he lied to baseball fans everywhere and now this is just another big "f*ck you!" from one of the biggest stars in baseball. I used to be a Roger Clemmens fan back when he played in Toronto but all my respect for him went down the toilet when I found out he was doing steroids.

They are ALL to blame, cause they all tarnished the reputation of baseball.
