It does a great disservice to the game to throw that bone at every departing player in the game and in my opinion and is nothing but a poor attempt at innuendo.
Blame MLB and the Union for the public thinking these things. A laugh? The laugh is MLB and the Union for having those blind eyes for all these years. Disservice? Blame the afore-mentioned MLB and the Union for that, not me or any other fan who questions these things.
Back to Frank... how long have you known the guy? Did you know him when he was 18-years-old and a freshman at Auburn? You may have. But even if you did, it does not mean you know what he did and did not do. Could he have started on the road to roids while playing football at a major D-I program? I'd venture to guess that thousands-upon-thousands of other athletes have. Is Frank above all that? Sure he could be, but I'd put the same odds on the possibility that he has used something that is not legal.
But, as I have already said, laugh at MLB and the Union... not the fan(s). Blame them for something that was out of control and tarnished the game (at least for now). Blame them for innuendo. Blame them, don't blame the fan(s).
