You see ball players... athletes of any sport, test positve for performance enhancing drugs all the time it seems. It's almost common now. While I disagree with it, hate it, and think it's cheating, all in all I respect it. Follow me...
You're a young up and coming player. The cock of the walk in high school. Pretty damned good in college. Now you're in the minors and everyone else around you was like you in high school. You're not the man anymore. You need an edge.
Or you're an aging veteran. That young buck is looking to take your spot. You need the last contract. The one that will solidify your family's needs for good. You need a boost.
All understandable. Wrong, but I can see where they're coming from. There's reason behind it.
But you have to be a special kind of stoopid to be like this idiot. What in the hell goes through people's minds? Give your head a shake man.
I love how he says "this is an isolated incident."
Riiiiggghhhhhttt. Because a major league ball player who just won (wrongly so) rookie of the year, is exactly the type of person to give drugs a try for the first time in his life. Sounds like the right time, doesn't it?
What a mental midget...
