John Rocker Just Helped Confirm My Conspiracy In Baseball Theory

At least I know I'm not alone when I come up with these radical ideas and theories about random topics and stories. For those who haven't read the article I wrote about steroids as a conspiracy in baseball, basically to sum it up I said the MLB knew about players using steroids in the 90s and on, but let it slide because players smashing home runs and pitchers throwing heat were great for baseball ratings and sales. Do you really think it was a coincidence that after the baseball strike in the mid 90s halted baseball, the great home run chase of 1998 happened naturally? Do you really think that it was a coincidence that in the 80s players looked like stick figures and now they are big and built? I don't. There had to be something more (steroids) and baseball knew about it, but didn't do anything to stop it. IT WASN'T UNTIL THE GOVERNMENT GOT INVOLVED IS BASEBALL TRYING TO STAMP OUT STEROIDS BECAUSE NOW IT HAS BECOME A LEGAL ISSUE. BASEBALL CAN NO LONGER CONTAIN WHAT THEY WERE HIDING.

Why do I mention this yet again? Because an actual MLB player himself actually came on the radio and said exactly what I've been saying. Granted, John Rocker may not be the most reliable source because he is known to go running off at the mouth at times. However, according to ESPN, John Rocker said Monday that baseball commissioner Bud Selig knew he failed a drug test in 2000 and that doctors for the "league" and the "players association" advised him and several Texas Rangers teammates on how to effectively use steroids. Rocker, no stranger to controversy, made those comments on Atlanta radio station Rock 100.5. Later Monday, he told Atlanta sports talk radio station 680 The Fan that "between 40 to 50 percent of baseball players are on steroids" and "in 2000 Bud Selig knew John Rocker was taking the juice. Bud Selig knew this was going on," he said. "I failed the test, yet nobody heard about it."
