Hall of Famer Carlton Fisk voiced his opinion on Mark McGwire and PED’s and steroids.
“That’s a crock,” Fisk said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. “There’s a reason they call it performance-enhancing drugs. That’s what it does — performance enhancement. You can be good, but it’s going to make you better. You can be average, but it is going to make you good. If you are below average, it is going to make you average. Some guys who went that route got their five-year, $35 million contracts and now are off into the sunset somewhere. Because once they can’t use [steroids] anymore, they can’t play anymore. “
While Fisk will always have a solid following in the memorabilia world, the jury remains out on Mark McGwire.
