Would You Have Roided?

Thursday, December 13, 2007

I think one thing that needs to come out of this report is that everyone should take an honest look at themselves and think if I was them what would I have done. Would you have taken steroids or HGH or anything to give you an edge? Be honest with yourself.

Personally I don't think I could give a flat out no. I don't know if I could say if I was in any situation in a major league baseball career that I wouldn't have tried to get any edge to improve the situation. To me there are to distinct scenarios where I would most likely differ. The first would be the situation of Barry Bonds and those players that were already superior athletes and had already made a name for themselves. I honestly think that if I was in that situation and I had already established myself in the big leagues as a good player that I would be content with that. I think I wouldn't seek out the extra edge to turn myself into a Hall of Fame player or get that extra 1 or 2 million in the contract. However if I was a struggling high minors player who desperately wanted to get into the league or someone who was bouncing between the majors and the minors and I truly thought that taking Steroids or HGH would let me establish myself as a full time major leaguer than I probably would have done it. I obviously would have known what I was doing was wrong but so close to a dream I think I would have sacrificed my morals and attempted to achieve the dream.

So what do you think, what would you have done in either of those scenarios?

Too much money on the line not to use them.

Realistically who cares about the long term health effects. Id rather take them make $10 million and be retired at 33 years old and die at 55. Being retired during the quality years of my life. As compared to working full time until in 60 and die at 67 as an old man in a nusring home.
