Ortiz Speaks…Time to Take Sides

Well there you have it, the wait is over. Ortiz has finally broken his silence on the steroid accusations and has chosen to travel down the long road of denial. Am I happy? No. Do I believe him? It doesn’t matter. I have become much too jaded to this steroid issue by now. We live in a time when the media feels justified in pointing the finger based on unsubstantiated evidence. The minute Ortiz’s reputation was called into question, irreparable damage was done.

So should I believe David? Should I believe the chief of the players union? Should I believe Nomar? I honestly don’t know. It seems to me that each of them is talking out of their asses on this issue. Here is what I do know…I trust each of those guys a lot more than an unnamed, backstabbing lawyer blabbing to the press about an “anonymous steroid test.”

The fact of the matter is that almost every player named in the last couple years has been linked to either the Yankees or Red Sox. Manny, Ortiz, Clemens, Pettite, Giambi, Arod, the list goes on…Is that a coincidence? I am starting to think that each team has been digging for dirt on the other. If these enemies would put aside their rivalry for the overall reputation of the game we would be better off.

So believe what you want when it comes to David. He was good back then, he sucks now. The record books aren’t going to change. I know a lot of baseball fans out there want the entire 2003 list to be leaked. I disagree, what exactly would that accomplish? We are 6 years removed from those results and with mandatory testing in place the game has become virtually clean. The Manny’s of the world will serve their suspensions and the game will be better for it.

Anyways, I’m gonna go enjoy the rest of the game…on mute so I don’t have to listen to Joe Buck or Tim McCarver say dumb shit.
