Many moons ago, Steve Bonner, who runs The Midnight Hour, took the time to respond to a critique I posted of his comments on steroids, and he was a) hysterical, and b) dead on:
…. Look, being that this Only Baseball Matters dude is obviously a Giants fan and obviously a Barry fan I guess his defensiveness is totally expected. He covers all the bases. Basically Perricone contends that,
1) Barry never took roids
2) If he did it doesn’t matter because there is nothing wrong with roids
3) People who complain about roids messing up the sanctity of the game are wackos.
Steve goes on to note that I had, (and still do) offer contradictory statements about the issue. He’s right. Hey, it’s a complex issue, and I find myself all over the place at times. Sorry.
Anyway, I’d somehow lost Bonner’s site, and found it again. It’s good stuff, so he’s back at the top of More Baseball. I hope he and I have some more to talk about. I’m gonna send him an email and see what he has to say about baseball’s and my latest on the subject.
