Step up to the plate

It is time for Roger to step up and face the music. Did he lie to Congress? Probably. Will he admit it now? Probably not. While the court of public opinion has it's thoughts on guys like Roger and Barry, and yes I have my own this case is different. This case says more about integrity and honesty. The actions that these former players take affect the younger ballplayers of today. If they see that guy can lie and cheat to get ahead, why can't they? So what's it going to be Roger, will we get the truth out of you or will you try to save your butt?

  1. Larry,

    Perjury is a crime, yes. But almost every HOF player, almost every All-Star, almost every major league player has done something in their career 'to get ahead'. Greenies, absinthe, rubbing substances like DMSO on your arm, injecting horse tranquilizers, heck even drinking in the 1920s and early 1930s.

    Not to mention spitballs, corked bats and the worst of all - GAMBLING!

    Every player can be tarred with a broad brush of their era. What's happened is that until Ball Four, it was all a wink-and-a-nod. Not now.
