How did I not hear of this? In this issue Ken Caminiti talks unabashedly about how he used steroids since 1996. The article goes on to say that *at least* 40-50% of players are doing either steroids, HGH or both. Most players are doing greenies (amphetemines).
I've only been a lukewarm fan for a while now, so this is pretty much the final nail in the coffin for me. As far as I'm concerned, Roger Maris still has the HR record until Bonds, McGuire and Sosa get tested.
In the meantime, I have no desire to watch a bunch of cheating assholes.*
*YES, steroids and HGH makes a huge difference in case you're going to counter about how it's still mostly a "hand-eye" coordination game. Just look at Caminiti's numbers before and after.
Quick note - I accidentally said Ted Williams instead of Roger Maris originally. I edited this post to correct my mistake.
