Cheaters, Phonies and Fakes
Former Yankees, Cardinals and Giants slugger, Jack Clark, didn’t have any kind words to say about Mark McGwire’s recent admissions that he used steroids and PED’s.
“It’s a shame that he thinks we’re all stupid, that he only did steroids because of injuries. That’s such a cop-out, such a lie. These guys did steroids to take the money to pump up their egos and then take their consequences down the road.”
Clark made these comments to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch soon after Mark McGwire’s public moment of clarity.
“All those guys are cheaters — A-Rod. Fake, phony. Rafael Palmeiro. Fake, a phony. Clemens, Bonds, Sosa… Fakes. Phonies. They don’t deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.”
Before finishing with his tirade, he had one last message for McGwire, whom he calls a “sad excuse for a ballplayer”.
“I’m not even going to say hello to him. I’m not going to shake his hand. Just seeing him in uniform makes me throw up,” said Clark. “He should not be in baseball. He should be banned from baseball more than ever.”
Isn’t this how a real baseball commissioner should have responded to the very first allegations of steroids use?
