I think the best bit of McGwire spleen I’ve seen so far comes from the New York Post’s Kevin Kernan. Unlike a lot of the cutesy people who are trying to explain why, exactly, McGwire’s apology doesn’t cut the mustard and parsing words and all of that, Kernan just lets fly about the evils of steroids and how baseball has lost it’s soul. It’s perversely refreshing.
It’s the kind of thing that makes me wonder which anti-drug charity he donates the royalties to his book, “Roger Clemens, Baseball Superstar.” Which was edited, curiously enough, by the author of the book “Mark McGwire: Home Run Hero.”
UPDATE: Reader ralphdibny found this gem. Kernan equates A-Rod’s steroid use with getting one’s hands caught in the cookie jar, and calls his confession — which, unlike McGwire’s, was forced, not voluntary — “a positive first step in the rebuilding process.”
