He has now missed more games than he has played since being called up.

Wait, its now two steroids?

Once I read the clostebol excuse, it was pretty clear to me the dude just frantically googled and found something similarly named to blame it on.

in any case, lets just legalize steroids in sports.   I want to see 325lb mass monsters pulling hamstrings off the bone, hitting 700ft home runs for our amusement.  I want to see 115mph fastballs.  Entertain me!

I guess it was too much work to take the rash to the team doctor, a man employed for the sole purpose of treating a couple dozen patients in such a manner that doesn't violate league substance abuses rules.

Fernando Tatis Sr: "It was a mistake that could have been handled differently, destroy the image of a player for such a small thing, for a situation like this. Is a catastrophe not just for Tatis Jr, but for all baseball. There's millions of fans that will stop watching baseball"

Fernando Tatis Sr has crossed over into LaVar Ball territory.

there's always an excuse, and it's always ridiculous, convoluted, and fake.

Pffft, I'm watching the Padres game right now and I'm not even a San Diego fan.  Checkmate, Mr. Tatis.

this news is so old it's almost eligible to sign as an international free agent

I'm retired but, the last time I checked, anabolic steroids have absolutely no place in the treatment of ringworm (his dad claimed he had ringworm).  Regular steroids either.  In fact, if you have ringworm, you can make it suddenly a helluva lot worse by applying an over the counter steroid cream (cortisone cream).  I'm always impressed by people who have money and easy access to appropriate medical care who then choose to take anabolic steroids and then try to cook up some very half baked excuse when they are apprehended by authorities.  Perhaps Tatis should be suspended for another 80 games for being so farking stupid.

Banning steroids is cheaper than lawyers. You see how much the NFL is spending on CTE. Just n3cause it's entertainment doesn't mean athletes have to kill themselves for us.

Sure, capitalism is doing a bang-up job on unions, but it isn't 100% "worker beware". Sometimes worker protections get through.

It doesn't have to make sense to most rational people, he just needed some cover story to sell to Padres fans since he's under contract there until 2034.  Now they can say "nuh uh he wasn't cheating, just stupid" and cheer him on like they always have.

As a Dodgers fan, if there was something illegal Bellinger could take to make him a .275 hitter, I'd gladly fall for whatever bullshiat story he wanted to put out there.

$340M contract and he still needs both his mommy and his daddy to fight his battles for him.

Lamisil Cream would have cleared ringworm up with no steroid.

Clobetasol is sold as a prescription steroid. . .a higher powered hydrocortisone if you will.
