Words of Wisdom from a Class Act

Doug Glanville, one-time CF for the Cubs, Rangers and Phillies, had this to say about the competitive nature of baseball players, what their mindset should be and why they should eschew performance enhancing drugs.

It's worth a good read, and it's a breath of fresh air from the discussions we've witnessed recently about performance-enhancing drugs in baseball. If you were to go back and look at films of baseball players from 25 years ago and compare them to today, you'll notice a rather stark contrast in body shapes. Twenty-five years ago, stringbeans played the game. Today, those players are fewer and farther between. Now, some have benefitted from enhanced training techniques, while others have benefitted from, well, performance-enhancing substances. The doubts will linger forever, perhaps, about what caused the differences between someone who played in the early 80's and someone who played in the mid 90's. Doug Glanville, Fred McGriff and many others clearly did not use performance-enhancing drugs.

Which makes them all the more worth listening to.
