The Mitchell Report was necessary for baseball, and frankly for all pro-sports. The list of players that were in some way or another connected to steroids and the use of steroids, surprised hardly any baseball fan. It is sad that it has come to this, but I think because Selig loves baseball, as do the owners and the majority of players, very strict rules will be implemented and enforced. I love baseball, it is a great game, so my feelings will never change about it. Will I be excited about some guy throwing a no-no or blasting homeruns out of the park? Yes I still will be, because not every player who will do those things will be juiced, and I know that.
This isn't the first time that baseball has had to deal with a "crisis" and will not be the last. In fact, the mere point that baseball has always been able to recover and endure from such downfalls, proves that this game is, and forever will remain, America's favorite past time.
