Dale Murphy on PEDs, Pete Rose
Former MLB All-Star Dale Murphy joined John Canzano on The Bald Faced Truth Thursday afternoon to talk about his career and his thoughts on the evolution of performance enhancing drugs in the MLB.
Murphy had much to say on the topic of PEDs, first acknowledging the problem facing owners who are eager to fill seats.
“There’s a little bit of a conflict of interest when a guy’s performance is enhanced for the owners.”
However, Murphy said he believes the tides are turning against players who use products such as BioGenesis.
“I think the players are upset, I think they’re getting to the point where they’re tired of guys taking money, and they’re tired of guys taking jobs away from young players who are trying to do it right.”
However, Murphy said that he can’t judge the younger generation.
“My generation was one that was fighting drug testing. I can’t point the finger very far, our generation thought it was basically a personal rights issue. Well, we missed the boat there.”
