Call it roid rage. Anyway, further to the oft-mentioned chestnut about steroids not being against the rules prior to 2002, to quote the Mitchell Report:
Many have asserted that steroids and other performance enhancing substances were not banned in Major League Baseball before the 2002 Basic Agreement. This is not accurate. Beginning in 1971 and continuing today, Major League Baseball's drug policy has prohibited the use of any prescription medication without a valid prescription. By implication, this prohibition applied to steroids even before 1991, when Commissioner Fay Vincent first expressly included steroids in baseball's drug policy.
And once again, in any case, baseball does not occur in a vacuum. It is cheating to break the law in order to further your chances of winning a sporting contest. Capiche?
Andrew, please post about something else while I go and hide my drug paraphernalia...
