  • Mark McGwire admits to Steroid Use (during record breaking season)



    I'm not shocked he did it, I'm shocked he admitted it.

    Mark McGwire comes clean, admits steroids use - ESPN

    NEW YORK -- Mark McGwire finally came clean Monday, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998.

    McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade.

    "I wish I had never touched steroids," McGwire said in a statement. "It was foolish and it was a mistake. I truly apologize. Looking back, I wish I had never played during the steroid era."

    McGwire also used human growth hormone, a person close to McGwire said, speaking on condition of anonymity because McGwire didn't include that detail in his statement.

    McGwire's decision to admit using steroids was prompted by his decision to become hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, his final big league team. Tony La Russa, McGwire's manager in Oakland and St. Louis, has been among McGwire's biggest supporters and thinks returning to the field can restore the former slugger's reputation.

    It's sad. I really like McGwire and still do but it's another knock against the era of cheating in baseball.

      I think it was inevitable he was going to come clean considering the amount of votes he got for the Hall (not many) and the fact he's the new hitting coach for the Cardinals.

        Sorry, Mark. Much too little (especially as far as the HOF goes) and at least five years too late (especially as far as Congress is concerned).

        I don't mind that you're coming back to the Cardinals as a hitting coach. But I'm not buying the "apology" here.
        God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

          Is he taking skin lightning drugs as well?

          I'm pretty sure that Mac, Sammy, or Barry will ever get into the hall....unless they buy a ticket.

            As far as his reputation is concerned with me...he will always be a cheater and will never have any respect from me and IMO does not deserve any of the records that he has.

              What a loser.
              Not that we didn't already suspect it. Don't want his apology. It means nothing.

                That's not surprising. A lot of athletes use it. Tiger Woods goes to a doctor who is known to supply it....at any rate it was prevalent in baseball at the time he was using it.

                  Not a big shocker here.

                        Well, he won't be getting into the Hall of Fame anyway. Maybe the Hall of Imfamy is calling?

                        As coach for the Cardinals he would be asked repeatedly whether he used them, when will he finally admit to them, etc.
                        Now, he doesn't have to answer that question anymore.

                        I'd like to know what he knows about hitting, though. Lots of little stuff like shifts in stances and such, I guess. How to hit against particular pitchers. What each player's weak spots are, and how to improve against those pitches (since the pitchers have this same info).

                            I knew this for years. I heard it on the news. I think Jose Conseco outed him, didn't he? Maybe that's how I heard it. But I heard about him and steroid use in the media before.

                              Why would Tiger use it? He's just a golfer. Does he really need muscles for golfing? I mean, come on! :lol:.
