A good chunk of the talk was about use of steroids or other drugs, past and present. And here is where my wife comes in. When the discussion turned to how major leaguers would take amphetamines to give them a boost during what can be a long season, say, a day game after a night game, she found no sympathy for pill-popping players. I didn't actually take notes, but her rant went something like this: "Aw, those poor guys. What do they do that makes them so tired? They sit around waiting to swing the bat? And they go to bat maybe four or five times? Aw, that's sooooooo tiring. And then they just stand around in the field until they have to pick up that little ball and throw it? Poor babies. It's not like they're playing football."
