...Might be the best way to describe ex-Ranger, Raphael Palmeiro lately. Far from the comfort of the all-star lifestyle of a major league ballplayer looking at a Hall of Fame finale.
The likelihood that Palmeiro lied under oath still fresh in the minds of Congress, they've now put the pressure squarely on the player's union to come up with a solution to the "roid boys".
Was Canseco right? Did Rafy lie under oath? Should pundits and politicians do everything humanly possible to protect the HoF from including those with enhanced stats?
Before you answer yes, read Richard Scheinin's 'Field of Screams'. This book makes our group of "juice junkies" look like altar boys. It portrays these cretins of the national pastime as drunks, cheats, thieves, wife beaters, bigots [see HoFer Ty Cobb], rapists and yes, even murderers.
Problem is, none of these player's malodorous deeds enhanced their playing stats...Decisions, decisions.
