MLB Players Accused of Taking Performance-Enhancing Drugs

MLB Players Accused of Taking Performance-Enhancing Drugs | Sports Ethics: Parker, D. | Scoop.it

Major League Baseball is once again alleging that a number of its players are guilty of abusing performance-enhancing drugs. One of the players is Ryan Braun, a player for the Brewers who narrowly escaped the same kind of trouble a year ago.

 

MLB is investigating more than 20 players who may be linked to Biogenesis, a clinic that distributes performance-enhancing drugs. With big names on the list such as Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun, baseball fans across the country are paying close attention for any new announcements. Many fans are discouraged that yet another group of athletes seemed to have set a poor example for our young people.

Rocker says PEDs made for 'better game'

Rocker says PEDs made for 'better game' | Sports Ethics: Parker, D. | Scoop.it

John Rocker, the formerly disgraced Atlanta Braves closer who years after retirement acknowledged having used steroids during his career, said in a radio interview that PED use in Major League Baseball helped transform it into a more appealing sport.

 

"Honestly, and this may go against what some people think from an ethical standpoint, I think it was the better game," Rocker said on Cleveland's 92.3 The Fan, a CBS affiliate. "At the end of the day when people are paying their $80, $120, whatever it may be, to buy their ticket and come watch that game, it's almost like the circus is in town.

The Mag: The problem with Tommy John surgery | Sports Ethics: Parker, D. | Scoop.it

When ace after ace blows an elbow from the same biomechanical flaw, Tommy John surgery keeps them in the game. But science, not the scalpel, is the real solution, writes Lindsay Berra in ESPN The Magazine.

To summarize this article I would say Tommy John surgery is every baseball players worst nightmare. Tommy John surgery is the hardest surgery to recover from, for baseball players. It can easily end a baseball career. Tearing the UCL in the arm causes people to have this surgery. The UCL is connected to the ulna in the forearm when you tear it, its hard to even move it. As a baseball player my reaction to this is frightening. Having that surgery would end my career and chances of playing college baseball. Hearing you need Tommy John surgery is like hearing you have a terrible disease. I learned what exactly Tommy John surgery is from this article. It made me much more aware of how bad it is.
