Hey look, another drug scandal in MLB. Yawn.

Who fucking cares about baseball anyways?

I say let them drug up as much as they want and have home run derbies every game.

It's an evolving scandal where overpaid crybabies push the limits of science to continuously fund the research and development of increasingly sophisticated methods of gaining an unfair advantage in a game to earn further inflated contracts.

The 'sport' has become a joke at this point, and one should assume that a player is on PEDs if they hit a home run.

This begs the question "why not just legalize it and get it over with?".

A guy finished his shift on a broken leg. How can I say anything against that? A baseball player gets a hangnail and is on DL for 2 weeks; gets paid more than hockey player with broken leg.

see? hockey has clearly leagalized it (see also: Karlsson), so why does a game (not even a sport) like baseball not legalize it?

so why does a game (not even a sport)

Would love to see you:

- Block a 90 mph pitch in the dirt

- Get cleated at second base

- Get bowled over at catcher

- Field a ground ball

- Make the throw from 3rd to first in time to get a runner

- Track a fly ball

- hit a 65 mph pitch

and then say its not a sport.

C'MON ROLLER!

Didn't play catcher

Didn't have radar technology at my games, so I guess that we'll never know.

Point being, by defining baseball as a sport, you are also qualifying this guy as an athlete:

He is not.

Has an NHL player ever played with a bullet in his head? No.

Those are stunning details of a goalkeeper who found out the nagging headache he had was from a 9mm bullet—the byproduct of an irresponsible person celebrating a local wedding by firing a few shots in the air.

According to the report, Duško Krtalica, the 51-year-old amateur keeper, was in goal for his suburban team when he complained that his head was hurting.

Being far more of a man than I could ever hope to be, he played the entire 90-minute fixture and only allowed one goal.

At some point, he began to complain about far more severe symptoms. Bailey writes that Krtalica "complained of a stiff arm and had difficulty speaking. He was driven to a local hospital, where doctors were shocked to see that a 9mm bullet was clearly lodged in his skull."

NHL'rs are fat 19 year olds looking to cash in. And your 'sport' is just as corrupt as the rest of them Roller. The sooner you realize this the sooner we can all move on.

Again, I'm not calling for stricter rules, I'm calling for all out openness. You are trying to argue another point.

Your right. Why have laws apply to sports at all? We should let all sports be bloodsports... sounds just as reasonable as letting a bunch of poor kids chase the dream of a giant contract and then telling them that they should do drugs to help them compete.

Roller, you're being an ass.

It's not just the successful dudes who do drugs. There's a whole bunch of fucked up bro's who need a bunch of fucked up health care because they really thought they could make it, and took that route, only to find they still fell short and now, luckily, they get to remember all of their efforts (which btw were of course choices made totally in a vacuum away from the rest of society and entirely independently by perfectly rational teenagers) every time they have a bout of inexplicable rage. Let's not forget that if a twenty year old catcher has been on drugs for five years, he's been doing them since fifteen. So you think it should be perfectly legal to try and convince fifteen year old Dominican kids that they should do steroids to help get their families on their feet?

Nice. Real thoughtful stuff here today.
