Mark McGwire recently lost a battle of self doubt and guilt prior to taking up a coaching position with the St. Louis Cardinals and came out about his use of performance enhancing drugs during his record breaking career.
Amidst all of that, I received some pretty entertaining emails about other suspected steroid users in the MLB, however true they may be, all in jest. Until I received an email about MLB Hall of Famer, Ernie Banks, flat out calling on one of the greats to come forward and admit to his own drug abuse.
You might wonder what in the world is Sammy Sosa doing other than bleaching his skin. You might wonder if any of the greats did anything great at all without the use of something other than agressive training and practice. Something other than guts. I'm starting to wonder about a lot of things.
Banks was quoted in a recent interview telling Sosa to "come clean with it."
We'll see how this one plays out.
