This is a refrain familiar to any baseball fan forced to fight for the soul of their sport in the face of hockey/football/basketball fan-based bigotry. You and I know it isn’t true but that doesn’t stop dummies from making this baseless claim.
You know who else knows it just ain’t so? Hunter Pence and Domonic Brown of the Philadelphia Phillies. I encourage anyone who thinks baseball players aren’t athletes to direct their comments to these two refrigerator-shaped gentleman showing off in a Florida gym.
Luckily for your narrow-minded friend, steroids are a thing that exist in the world. So they’re set in their bizarre belief. Just as Hunter Pence and Dom Brown look set to carry the rapidly-aging Phillies offense. Probably on with their traps alone because, well, jeez.
