McGwire Still a Liar

posted on

By Brian McKenna

In light of reports this week that at least 20 MLB players may be facing a suspension for their connection to an ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal, I thought it would be interesting to go back to October 2009 when the Cardinals signed Mark McGwire as their hitting coach. I blogged the following the day after they hired him:

“Mark McGwire has been given a second chance, a unique opportunity to go from a complete zero to a hero.

“He can now start fulfilling the promise he made to the youth of America while under oath on March 17, 2005. He promised that day to be the anti-steroids spokesperson and to give speeches to kids across America. He had a chance that day to prove to us that he didn’t use kids to escape ridicule and embarrassment.

“This is also an opportunity for the St. Louis Cardinals organization to go from being one of the biggest enablers in professional sports to being an organization that we can once again trust.

“La Russa likes to throw around the word integrity a lot. Let’s see if he really understands what the word means because if La Russa and the Cardinals allow McGwire to come back without fulfilling the promise that he made to the youth of America, then he isn’t anything but a two-bit enabler. If the Cardinals and McGwire say that they ‘aren’t talking about the past,’ then here is the message they are sending to fans and kids: Do whatever you can do to win, cheat, lie, take illegal drugs, make promises that you never intend to keep; deceive. When put in a very uncomfortable situation, do whatever you can to escape responsibility.

“Well, today is the day, Mr. McGwire, to be a real man. Today is the day to talk about the past. Today is the day to start proving to us that you are worthy of your own highway!

“If that turns out not to be the case, we can’t ever believe anything out of La Russa’s mouth. We can’t believe anything the Cardinals, MLB or Albert Pujols say anymore. We can’t believe that anyone McGwire works with as the new hitting coach is clean because MLB has lied in the past and swept so much under the rug. We, the fans, are like jolted lovers. We want to believe, but we’ve been burned too many times in the past.

McGwire has had 4½ years to deliver on his promise; maybe now is the time?

“Hopefully, McGwire is coming back to prove to us all that he is here to talk about the past. He is here to accept responsibility and he’s here to prove to us that he isn’t a man who wouldn’t use children to cover his own ass! Anything less is unacceptable.


Forward to June 7, 2013. We now know McGwire doesn’t give a squat about kids and steroids. We now know he is a phony. We now know he isn’t a real man. To this day, he hasn’t given one anti-steroids speech to the youth of America. He has mentioned several times that he was playing at least four rounds of golf per week during his retirement. According to my math, McLiar has played over at least 250 rounds of golf since March 17, 2005. How many kids could he have made think twice about taking steroids if he had given only 10 speeches? We will never know.

At least MLB is serious now about cleaning up the game. This investigation proves that they are being proactive instead of looking the other way.

Message to kids from Uncle Brian: Mark McGwire is living proof that taking steroids can make you a liar, selfish and really stupid!
