Don't blame the players for giving us what we want.
Too often it seems as if baseball fans want to abandon baseball. It gives them an opportunity to wax wistful about it, to summon up an inner Daniel Stern to narrate The Wonder Years of baseball's past. Steroids--and I say this as a Red Sox fan--didn't have anything to do with Derek Jeter's diving into the stands to make a catch. Steroids didn't suture Curt Schilling's ankle so he could pitch. I'll continue to watch the steroids developments, but I'm more interested in how David Wells pitches for our boys and whether the Astros can make a run of it so the Sox can face Roger Clemens in the Series.
