FanPost Friday: Should MLB legalize PEDs?

This week’s FanPost prompt tackles a new spin on an old problem.

MLB: Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to FanPost Friday at MLB Daily Dish. Each Friday we’ll offer you up a prompt to gush about on our FanPost section, for better or for worse. If we really love your argument, we’ll make sure your post sees the front page of our site. Here’s this week’s prompt:

On Tuesday of this week, Mariners second baseman Robinson Canó was suspended for violating Major League Baseball’s joint drug agreement. It was found that the veteran tested positive for Furosemide, a substance know to be used to mask PED usages. This subsequently suspended the slugger for 80 days starting immediately and also makes him ineligible for postseason play...if the Mariners make it, which would add so much more insult to injury.

This most recent steroid case has caused a shockwave of debate throughout the baseball community: will the MLB ever be able to fully rid the league of PEDs or should the evolve with the times and created a more loose form of the steroid policy? So here’s the question we’re posing to you fans: Is it realistic for Major League Baseball to legalize the use of steroids in baseball? Answer this question in a FanPost here and let us know how you feel about the way steroids have shaped baseball and your writing could end up featured on our front page.
