Making the MLB Steroid Issue Go Away

by on February 24, 2008 updated February 24, 2008

 MLB players under suspicion of using performance enhancing drugs have mostly stumbled ther way through interviews and questioning by saying as little as possible. Here’s my take on how the MLB can rid themselves of this issue.

1) More testing and harsh punishments. Something like: Use and You’re banned for life.

2) Make every player under suspicion do what Andy Pettite did. Stand up in front of reporters for an hour and answer every question with honesty and humility. He’s the only one in this whole sordid mess to stand up and be a man.  Do that and you’re welcomed back with open arms. Skirt the issue and you can kiss your career goodbye.
