Want to know why we aren't celebrating the career year Jose Bautista is having in Toronto? Here's why: Barry Bonds. Mark McGwire. Sammy Sosa. Alex Rodriguez. And Roger Clemens.
What? Baseball, being hypocritical? We're shocked! But there is no denying the double standard in the game's treatment of Mark McGwire and Pete Rose.
Mark McGwire finally told the truth about steroids, so perhaps now some more of the big names suspected of using PEDs will follow his lead and at long last come forward, too.
He can't run and he can't hide anymore now that he's a hitting coach. It's time for Mark McGwire to salute his present by speaking out about his past.
Mark McGwire left a lot unsaid when he left baseball. If he wants back in, he needs to speak up.
Painful as it is to say it, it's true: Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds are legitimate All-Stars.
Mark McGwire comes up for Hall of Fame consideration next year. Sammy Sosa a few years hence. Gene Wojciechowski wouldn't vote for either of 'em.
