Steroids & MLB: Remember Steve Phillips? The guy who failed as a Mets’ GM and then was sacked at ESPN last year for boning a fellow employee? According to USA Today, Phillips was on the radio talking about the Barry Bonds’ trail, and said this: “Thank God for steroids. It brought the game back from extinction.” Two questions: 1) Why was the game about to be extinct? And since steroids are supposedly out of the game now, is it headed back toward extinction? I’m sure Bud Selig has nothing to worry about. Attendance is up and the revenue keeps rolling in! Wheee!
