Paige Spiranac has some thoughts on the Fernando Tatis Jr. steroids situation in the MLB.
Last Friday, the MLB announced they had suspended Tatis Jr. for 80 games after they found anabolic steroid Clostebol in his system. Tatis claims he took an anti-fungal treatment to treat a ringworm that caused the positive test.
On Monday, Spiranac mocked the Padres star for his ringworm excuse.
“Hello everyone, let’s talk about steroids. So Fernando Tatis Jr. has been suspended for PEDs and he was like ‘I would never… it’s just ringworm and I know this medication would be banned.’
So you’re telling me he went to the doctor and the doctor was like ‘Tatis! One of the most valuable players in the league making $340 million.. everyone’s counting on you… Let’s just risk it, let’s just see what happens with this medication.’
No, he knew what he was doing. He knew he was taking steroids like a ton of other players. I don’t like how these baseball players are like ‘I’m so disappointed…’ You have done the same thing. You’ve done the same thing.”
Spiranac went on to suggest that the MLB just make steroids legal.
“So how do we fix this? We make steroids legal. Have some transparency in the sport. I’m going to say that again, let’s make steroids legal. I want to see these guys doing superhuman things… Hitting home runs.
And while we’re at it, Pete Rose and Barry Bonds should be in the Hall of Fame. Simple and easy as that.”
