I’ll be back at lunch to pick apart Sunday’s box score, but until then I’d like to pose a question to you.
If you could go back to 1994 and make it so that no player would EVER take steroids again, but as a result, would have no MLB by 2002 due to the strike and lack of fan interest, would you do it?
I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think I would. Steroids brought the long ball, which at that time was what baseball needed. Think about how good you felt watching Sammy battle Big Mac in ’98. You can’t script how well that brought the interest back to the game. It would be a tough choice.
