I bet A-Rod is glad Mike Trout isn’t the commissioner of Major League Baseball right now. When asked what should be done about PED users, he had this to say:
“To me, personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught,” Trout said Monday during an interview with New York radio station WFAN. “It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural.”
He went on to say:
“Some people just are just trying to find that extra edge,” Trout told the radio station. “It’s tough as a guy that goes out there and plays hard every day and puts [in] 110 percent effort … to wake up, see there’s a list of guys that are on the list. It’s good that MLB caught them and they’re moving in the right direction with suspensions and stuff.”
In my opinion, there is no way the MLB would ban guys unless there are extreme circumstances. The major reason is that the players union who says they want PEDs out of the game, don’t want to hurt their own union. If they could do this, plus force you to pay back the money you made while on the juice then we would eliminate cheaters. Until then, it will not stop.
