Baseball is a game that is played on television for the entertainment of the masses. It is not a sport. Sports have rigid rules and regulations about behavior and what the athlete can ingest into his or her body. No one cries foul when an actress has her breasts enhanced, her chin lifted, or her eyes and whatever else she wants done (the male actors do the same thing). The actor or actress has to look a certain way to keep working. Unfortunately, the same is true of the overwhelming majority of the players in major league baseball, at least in the USA.
Its time for America to grow up and stop expecting ball players to be positive role models. They’re role models alright, but unfortunately, negative ones. We need to get used to what has happened and stop daydreaming about the past.
