As we get ready to kick off another great season of Major League Baseball, I thought I would take this time to remind everyone not to use steroids this year. Obviously, in an ideal world, we’d all be using steroids. Who doesn’t want to see beefy pitchers throwing 100 MPH fastballs to bulked-up batters hitting 60 home runs a season? Man, those were the days. But I digress, steroids are “wrong” and you are “role models” to “children” who might be influenced to “do” steroids. So just try to keep it under wraps. I mean, “don’t do it.”
Some nosy journalists have decided to be white knights about this whole steroids thing, so we just need to keep them happy until they die (which will be soon for most of them). So let’s all agree to pretend that we care about this enough to do something about it. After all, this is “the worst problem with baseball today.” It’s worse than Yuniesky Betancourt apparently! (Sorry, Yuni. Maybe try some steroids next time).
So, let me be clear. This season, let’s keep the steroid use to a minimum. That way, our game will be perfect. Now, if you’ll excuse me I have to go figure out a new way for our owners to fleece taxpayers on some stadium deals while simultaneously doing nothing about the apparent drunk-driving epidemic you idiots can’t keep under wraps.
Yours in gobs of cash,
