Mike Trout’s Strong Opinion Toward MLB’s PED Users is Rather Immature
I understand that the one-dimensional MLB fans of the world are jumping on the Mike Trout bandwagon, but let’s pump the brakes and digest what the Los Angeles Angels‘ star had to say about what the suspensions should be for MLB players who use PEDs.
For starters, Trout said on Monday that “I think you should be out of the game if you get caught,” when referring to what kind of punishment should be dished out to players like Alex Rodriguez. Naturally, this quote shows a changing of the guard as the game of baseball no longer needs steroids to maintain its popularity and Trout is letting us all know.
Unlike the 1990s and early 2000s, the game’s stars aren’t condoning cheaters and are alienating them instead. For instance, Josh Hamilton had this to say when he was asked about Trout’s comments.
“That’s [what] I would say 95 percent of the guys in the league want…I think [Trout] is right on.”
If that is the case, then 95% of the league is going about this PED situation like a bunch of dramatic teenagers. You see, giving a life-long suspension to first-time offenders means that drug testers and criminals like Tony Bosch are given a ton of power. Sorry, but I don’t want a young star like Everth Cabrera getting nailed for a lifetime just because a nobody like Bosch wants to make a name for himself.
Your intentions are good, but let’s take it easy with the zero-tolerance stuff, Mike.
