McGuire Doesn't Admit Much Else

I watched the interviews with Mark McGuire where he admits using steroids. Then the interview takes a strange turn.

He said he took steroids to help him heal faster and not to improve his performance. He said he would have hit 70 home runs in 1998 without steroids. He was doing so well when he took an immediate left turn from reality.

First, even if he was only helping himself return to play faster he had an advantage. He also said steroids wouldn't help him with hand-eye coordination. Even though a commentator said steroids do improve your eyesight and any improvement could mean the difference between a hit and a popup, even if steroids didn't improve his contact with the ball it surely made the difference between just a long out and a home run on more than one occasion.

It is too bad Mark McGuire is not coming clean. He is not taking responsiblity for his actions and it looks like he is doing what he is doing only because he wants a job with the Cardinals as a hitting coach. Denial is not a river in Egypt.
