I don't think anyone was shocked by BIG Mac admitting to being on steroids during his MLB career. Did he really need to confirm it for us? I don't think so but he did. Besides die-hard St. Louis fans, was there anyone left who held out hope that he was clean?
Bob Costas scored an interview with the juicer (audio from that interview linked below) and not only was it revealing and emotional it was downright hilarious!
So Mark, when did you start cheating? Click here for the answer.
I love how he blames the gym rats. Sure the roids may have been present in the gyms he was hanging out at but that doesn't mean you have to take them. Whatever.
So Mark, why did you take steroids? Click here for the answer.
HE DID IT FOR HEALTH PURPOSES???????? Oh come on! Okay, maybe he really thought that it would help him recover faster from injuries, steroids do have that effect, but did he ever stop to think that he was building muscle faster than his body could handle and it was causing injuries? And again, he blames someone else. His teammates whispers made him feel the pressure. Does this man have no free will?
So Mark, did the steroids help you hit? Click here for the answer.
I'm so sick of these athletes using the line "steroids do not improve hand-eye coordination." They may not make your eyes better but if you become stronger guess what? You can swing faster! What happens when you swing faster? You hit the ball harder and further! It's basic science. Everyone knows that he already had the ability to hit a baseball and hit homeruns but you can't tell me that they didn't help improve that ability. Also, if he was taking them to recover from injuries faster that means that he was getting back on the field faster and getting more at bats. What happens during an at bat? You hit the ball (unless you are Bill Hall....sorry, had to get a dig in there)! So yes, it did help him hit. Think about it.
So Mark, why did you approach the Congressional hearings the way you did? Click here for the answer.
Not everyone would take the approach he did. Sammy Sosa decided to forget how to speak English.
So Mark, are you sorry for what you did? Click here for the answer.
I'm hoping that when the Cardinals come to Milwaukee for the first time this year, I see plenty of signs ripping on Steroid Mac. Brewers fans did it for Barry, why not Mark?
