Could’ve, Should’ve, Would’ve
Per a new interview in The Athletic, Mark McGwire claims that he could have hit 70 home runs without the cocktail of performance-enhancing drugs he pumped into his body. Maybe he’s right? But, it doesn’t really matter.
The point is…he took the drugs. He took the drugs and told everyone that he didn’t, sanctimoniously. Sure, he wasn’t alone. The entire 1990’s was littered with cheaters. Just look at this list of top players from the 90’s.
Interestingly, the number 1 name on that list has never even been rumored to be a PED abuser. Can you imagine how many homers Ken Griffey Jr. would have hit if he was on PEDS? Good thing we’ll never know.
