Introducing the Major League Baseball PED All-Star Team
With thirteen more names officially added to the list of Major League Baseball players that have been suspended for using performance-enhancing drugs, we can now piece together a pretty (artificially) impressive PED All-Star team!
Even though we’re listing the best of the best in cheaters, it’s still important to understand that the game of baseball essentially rewards cheaters — and always has — from sign-stealing to framing pitches to pine tar to amphetamines to the ol’ ball in the glove trick. Cheaters prosper in baseball, as long as they aren’t caught. As good as these guys were at juicing up and crushing some baseballs, we can all agree – they sucked at not getting caught.
Now not all of these players have been suspended for PED use, but many of them have been rumored for years, dating all the way back to the Mitchell Report, released in 2007.
Ladies and gentleman, your PED All-Star team.
