Baseball and Cheating: America’s National Pastimes

Baseball’s numbers may be fake, but what isn’t?

MITCHELL BLATT

Baseball just keeps getting hit with more steroid news, and somehow we are supposed to be surprised, and the game isn’t supposed to be pure.

The latest bad news for baseball is that Manny Ramirez tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs the same week that Selena Roberts released her book accusing A-Rod of having taken steroids ever since high school.

It’s another reminder that baseball’s numbers for the past decade or so are fake and inflated. But what isn’t?

Just a few years ago, the Schiller Home Price Index was up to 180. It had risen about 70% between 1995 and 2005. The Dow Jones average had risen by about 350% in that same time period. America is based on fake inflated numbers.

The financial markets are fake. Home values were fake. Reality TV is fake.

Now we know that A-Rod was engaging in pitch tipping to his opponents in exchange for them tipping him, so there are more fake numbers there. But, baseball’s not the only sports with fake numbers.

The University of Toledo has had some players indicted in a point-shaving scheme. And if steroids are a problem in baseball, imagine how much they must be used in football.

Despite years of cheating and breaking federal law, players like A-Rod and Giambi continue to play baseball with little repercussions beyond public embarrassment. This consequence-free existence is paramount to current American events as well.

Run your car company into the ground? Have a bailout. Make stupid financial deals with irresponsible loans and derivative trading? Bailout.

The government runs up a trillion dollar deficit helping their irresponsible friends and they finance it by printing more fake money based on no value backing. They think they can just create value out of nothing and use it to “stimulate” the economy back to excessive levels while the American consumer continues to spend more money than they take in.

Baseball may be fake, but that’s just in keeping with it’s tradition as America’s national pastime.
