PEDs and Baseball
Professional baseball won't ever cane or purge its athletes caught using performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) because these athletes account for too much revenue. As far as the baseball Hall of Fame goes, the Alex Rodriguezes of the world will forever get inducted without the stigma of asterisks being on their mugs' face plates. The free market will know more about where the asterisks in the Hall belong than they will about the contributions and skills of the great players inducted in decades past. Everyone worried about the cheaters and their PED advantage can take heart in the rock solid memories of the free market. They'll keep the playing field perpetually leveled. Roger Maris' family can relax.
