What should be done with steroid users?

As a dedicated baseball fan i find that people who use steroids really get me p-oed. This is due to the fact that they think that they need them to do well, which might be true but look at other great players who haven't used them. For example... that scrawny little man named Hank Aaron. Guess where he is now? The top of the charts for the home run record. How did he do it without? Without steroids! So i think that it would only be fair that people who put in the time and work to get records (not just popped some pills or shot some steroids) get the records and those who take shortcuts get cut out. What do you think?

They should just make it illegal all around. Make it like pot, it doesn't help people more than it hurts them. As for its use in sports it should ban them from the league and they should get a pretty high fine. Like 10% or more of their total salery made in contracts/signing bonuses. If they are strict people will not waste a lifetime of training when they are already there, just to become better.

Yeah MLB needs to get off it's collective butt and do something. They also need to define specifically what players can and cannot use. Here in Houston some of the Astros talked about the trouble finding things like pain relief and other things they could use. If Jeff Bagwell had been able to use somethings he might have been able to play longer. One of the reasons Roger Clemens (besides being old) has so many problems is that some of the prescribed medications he used to take are no longer allowed. Our players have never been known to take any illegal stuff. Maybe that's why they don't have power hitters.
