…. Ya think?

Joe Posnanski wonders whether, after all this time, that maybe, just maybe, Mark McGwire is the one baseball player who got it right:

…. looking back you have to wonder if McGwire is the one guy in this whole absurd steroid mess who actually got it, the one guy who has come out of this thing with his dignity reasonably intact. McGwire refused to lie to make himself look better. He refused to turn over any of his friends. He also refused to make any admissions, which is looking like the wisest move of all.

*****

McGwire: Asking me or any other player to answer questions about who took steroids in

front of television cam

eras will not solve the problem. If a player answers no, he simply will not be believed. If he answers yes, he risks public scorn and endless government investigations.

*****

Well … that was prophetic.

…. And the lesson might be that Mark McGwire really did have it right. People keep trying, but it's becoming more and more apparent that there's no going back and fixing those years before baseball tested for steroids. There's no making many people feel better about that time when offensive numbers exploded (for reasons that, no doubt, go beyond steroid use). There are no new apologies, no total admissions, no way to rewrite history.

We are where we are.

Ditto.
