Frankly a baseball player who has suffered an injury ought to be able to take advantage of the latest medical break throughs in recovery. I'm kind of surprised anyone would argue otherwise.
But I kind of do think it's important to have proof when someone makes a claim that something does something and because of it, the game is ruined.
Also, if it's the act of cheating (and not the impact of cheating on stats) that is really what you're upset about, then really, it's mystifying why you follw baseball to begin with. Cheating is part of the baseball culture and it's so engrained, it's part of the fabric of the game.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
