No real shock to those who follow baseball but it's good to see that he finally is coming clean. Mark McGwire admits to using steroids during his playing career.

It's too bad he didn't come clean sooner, but better late than never. I wonder if Sosa will be next?

What in the heck is he sorry about? Making all of those millions of dollars? He should have come clean when he went in front of Congress a few years back. Boo-hoo-hoo, what a crybaby.

He's not sorry. He only came clean because he is the new hitting coach for the Cardinals and he had no choice because he would have had to answer questions all year. NONE of them are sorry....they really believe that there is nothing wrong with taking it.

Big Mac, MLB and the owners who encouraged the use of steroids should all be accountable. Bud Selig and these political hacks have a lot of nerve preaching morality. They treat baseball different than other sports, imagine if the football hall of fame had isssues with it's candidates taking steroids?

Why are they making McGwire a hitting coach anyway? He was a terrible hitter. His lifetime batting average is .263 and he only cracked .300 three times in his 16-year career. He also struck out 1596 times which averages out to about 100 per season. Unless St. Louis' roster is exclusively composed of 6'5" gorillas trying to swing for the fences, I'd say he's a lame choice.

Sometimes the least talented players make the best managers/coaches. They might not have the best skill set to get it done themselves but they know what it takes to get it done.

Look at the major league stats for Tommy Lasorda, Sparky Anderson, Ron Gardenhire, Bobby Cox to name a few and then check out their won/loss records as major league managers.

Then on the other hand to change sports for a moment but the same concept applies look at the professional playing stats for Larry Bird in basketball and Wayne Gretzky in hockey and then check their records as head coaches.
