If the players accused of steroid use were as honest and forthcoming as Smith and the people he talked to, we would all have a better understanding of the situation, and maybe then we, as fans and as a generation, could move on.

When my seven-month-old son grows up and wants to see a game, we'll go down to Citizens Bank Park without hesitation. Recent revelations don't erase or diminish my baseball memories, and I won't deprive my son of his memories just because there are a few selfish morons who don't realize that when you play a boy's game, there are boys watching.
The history of human progress is all about using technology to overcome the limits nature has imposed upon us. What's the difference between a player who has had a broken bone set, a knee replaced or a shoulder tear repaired by surgery and one who used juice? We should be encouraging pharmaceutical companies to develop safe steroids, not just for professional athletes but for everyone who wants to be bigger, stronger and faster. In a few decades this debate will seem very quaint.
