Mike Trout came out an voiced his opinion on the latest steroid controversy in baseball. He had harsh words for the PED users and claimed that PED users should be banned for life.
“To me, personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught. It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural. Some people just are just trying to find that extra edge. It’s tough as a guy that goes out there and plays hard every day and puts 110 percent effort … to wake up, see there’s a list of guys that are on the list. It’s good that MLB caught them and they’re moving in the right direction with suspensions and stuff.
-Trout said Monday during an interview with New York radio station WFAN.
Trout does have a point in what he is saying, if others are getting “artificial” talent through PEDS it is blatantly unfair to the people who are working everyday to be in the position they are in. The ironic part about it is that most of the people who were named on the biogenesis list aren’t near as big as Mike Trout. Mike Trout is built like a brick house. He looks like a linebacker who somehow fell in love with baseball and played it as a profession because he could.
Trout is one of the bright young stars in the game today. He will be an ambassador for the game in future generations, so it is good to hear that he is against the use of PEDS. Some people who are not hardcore baseball fans would rather have a game where people are taking PEDS and jacking homers every other at bat. But they don’t think about what the steroids do to the body. Steroids are dangerous drugs that can have very serious side effects. So not only is it unfair for the players but it also is good for the well being of the players who are tempted to take the substances.
A clean game is a good game and it is clear that is what the young players in the game are thinking. This is exactly what Bud Selig and the fans want to hear.
