Baseball Should Embrace Cheating And Bring Back Steroids

Baseball Should Embrace Cheating And Bring Back Steroids

It’s not cheating if it’s not illegal.


When I watch baseball, there is nothing I want to see less than a pitcher's duel. Sure I want my pitcher to throw cheddar, but on offense, I want monster dongs flying over the wall.

Baseball was at its peak when players were cheating. Nothing was better for the sport than Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa chasing home runs while posing for photos in togas, juiced out of their minds. Chicks aren’t the only ones that dig the long ball, it’s all fans.

This steroid era revitalized baseball’s popularity and the only thing that brought it down was the witch hunt to try and catch people cheating. The power hitters from that era have inspired the players of today to want to hit home runs, causing home run numbers to be on the rise again. This is great for the fans, but how much greater home run totals be if players could cheat?

I want to see Giancarlo Stanton stand in the on-deck circle, inject himself with a horse tranquilizer, and then blast a dinger from the Bronx to the moon. I want players to flex like the hulk and have their sleeves rip off. I want steroids in baseball.

Who do steroids hurt besides the player, his family, players who don’t use them, and the integrity of the game? It sure doesn’t hurt selfish fans like me. This would be a beneficial change to the game that would attract more fans.

In fact, while we are changing rules, why can’t the players fight like in hockey? The Yankees and Red Sox had a fight a couple of weeks ago and it was the most alive I’ve felt during a regular season game in years.

Look at Tyler Austin charge the mound! We shouldn’t be ejecting him; we should be rewarding him! The rivalry is back! At least do what hockey does and put him in the penalty box for an inning. We can make a bullpen prison in the outfield.

I know that you are thinking, these ideas are really stupid, but can you think of anything more fun? Imagine if one inning after that fight, “Hate Me Now” by Nas blared over the stadium speakers as Tyler Austin gets released from bullpen prison. The Fenway fans are booing and Austin steps up to the plate and blasts one over the monster because he is jacked up on roids. That is what I call fun.

As a Yankees fan, I guess I don’t need them to make these changes now. Stanton, Judge, and Sanchez will mess up your life without steroids. I just want baseball to be more entertaining outside of October. Steroids and fighting do the trick. Either way, I will always love America’s pastime and when this year ends, you can kiss my 28th ring.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
