Talkin' steroids

Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks told a Dallas-Fort Worth TV station earlier this month, "Juan Gonzalez for $24 million after he came off steroids, probably, we just gave that money away.''

On Wednesday, Hicks told The Associated Press via e-mail, "I have no knowledge that Juan used steriods. His number of injuries and early retirement just makes me suspicious.''

OK, so Hicks calls out a former player. Then he backs away from his original statement.

Hicks may not realize this, but some of the public thinks the owners are as much of a problem with steroids as the players. Here is the thinking: Owners want packed parks. Fans want to see players hit home runs. Owners turn the other way while players do steroids.

No one in Major League Baseball has the high ground on this topic.
