Mark coming clean
Posted by randall on 1/11/2010, 19:15:03
Well I knew this day would come. I'm glad Mark admitted it. I think most people who watch baseball closely knew this was going on. Not just Mark, but with a lot of players. People who get better after 35 are not the norm. It just doesn't happen. But what I appreciate is that Mark stepped forward when he didn't have to. He could have stayed in the backround and not said a word. But he loves baseball and wanted to get back to the game. I knew once he took the job that he would have to address this. The only other guys who "admitted" wrongdoing had already been caught red-handed. So its not like they stepped up. They were pushed! Guys like A-rod. He tested positive, he had no where to hide. Mark was already out of the public eye and there was no proof he did anything. He could have just kept going that way. But he did the right thing. I'm sure he feels a lot better now. People will get over it, life will go on. I think someday he will also go into the Hall of Fame. They can't keep everyone out! And if you asked me I think there were a lot more users out there. If we could know everyone in MLB who even tried steroids just once, I bet it would be about 80%. I truly believe that. So good luck Mark, glad to have you back. As a great Man once said, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone". I'm not throwing! LOL
