I was doing the rounds and came across an article discussing the problem of drug use in baseball.
Well duh. Is that really so surprising? As the author points out, these kids are still trying to make it to the big leagues, and the millions that come with an mlb contract. With guys like Mike McGuire and Barry Bonds breaking records and making records, being praised for their accomplisments in the process can you really expect anything else? Drug use in American kids has been studied, and in countries where the regulation is virtually non-existent kids are going to take every advantage they can get, especially if (career-wise) there are no consequences. I'm glad to see that the problem is recognized and that people are calling for a crack down to eliminate the double standard. Money matter aside, these are peoples lives we're talking about.
