Jack Clark speaks out against steroid users

Found an interesting post today from Yahoo’s Big League Stew blog.

Former St. Louis Cardinals player Jack Clark spoke pretty candidly regarding steroid users, calling all users "creeps."

Clark and fellow ex-Cardinals first baseman Mark McGwire, who admitted earlier this week to having used steroids, will be together at the Cardinals’ Winter Warmup this weekend.

"I’m not even going to say hello to him," Clark told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I’m not going to shake his hand."

But this set of quotes was my favorite:

"A-Rod: Fake, phony," Clark said. "Rafael Palmeiro: Fake, a phony.

"[Roger] Clemens, [Barry] Bonds: Fakes. Phonies. They don’t deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. They should all be in the Hall of Shame. They can afford to build it. They’ve all got so much money."

One thought on “Jack Clark speaks out against steroid users

  1. You have to admire Clark’s candidness and honesty but if the guys he listed would build a Hall of Shame, they could invite half the pitchers (or in Clemens case half of the hitter) who faced them in their careers to join them. Do I think that McGwire, A-Rod, Palmiero, etc should be in the Hall of Fame with their steroid admissions? No. Do I think they deserve to be singled out by outspoken colleagues such as Clark? No.

    As the old saying goes “Don’t hate the player….”
