    FF is correct. And that's why drugs have to be illegal in the sport - because if you let one guy do it you create an atmosphere where everyone (Cervelli?!?!) 'needs' to do it. PEDs are a very legitimate slippery-slope and there's no grey area. Players like Bonds and Arod etc devalued the skills of many guys who did not take PEDs. It's impossible to quantify but there are many players who earned less in their careers because money was chasing juiced-up HR hitters.

    Rhetorically: would you be okay making less at your job because people cheating at theirs were making more than you? That's the heart of the matter - how corrosive fraud can be, whether it's on Wall Street or in sports.

    It is not a witch hunt, if multiple (in this case many) players names are given.

    It is interesting how all of those guys just rolled over and took the 50 games.
