Baseball’s status

February 25, 2009 at 12:01 am Leave a comment

Over 1/2 of baseball’s fans are not taking the sport’s records as seriously now because of the widespread cheating.  Baseball is the Cheater-Sport. 

 “The same thing happens in other sports”.  Response: Let’s check the headlines for steroid us in other sports.   It doesn’t happen to this degree in other sports.

“You still have to hit the ball”.   Response: And you’re better equipped to do that night in and night out if you train with steroids.  Look, I didn’t say these guys weren’t really good in the first place.  They’re the best – they’re the pros.  And they’re using steroids to swing faster, swing harder, run faster, heal faster. 

Baseball is over-rated.  It’s a great part of Americana, like Coney Island and muscle-cars.  But like Coney Island and muscle cars…it’s time for baseball to fade away into the background.  We’ll still have some remnant of it, just like there are still a couple of muscle cars.  But like GTO’s and GTX’s and Impala’s and Firebirds and Chevelle’s and Super Bee’s…it’s time to put baseball out to pasture. 

More than half of baseball fans surveyed say Alex Rodriguez shouldn’t make the Hall of Fame after admitting that he used steroids. And as for the game’s hallowed records? Those same fans seem to care less and less anyway. An Associated Press-GfK poll released Wednesday also showed this: Fans are losing interest in the whole steroids issue.

With 553 home runs, Rodriguez is considered likely to break Barry Bonds’ career record of 762.

Five of the top 12 home run hitters in history — Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Rodriguez — have been tainted by allegations of steroid use. According to the poll, 62 percent of baseball fans now take the game’s records less seriously for that reason.
