The Simple Reason Why Steroid Testing Isn't Completely To Blame For The Lack Of Scoring In Baseball...
Geege Schuman stashed this in Baseball
There might be a more logical explanation that has nothing to do with drugs and more to do with how teams are smarter than ever.
One problem with blaming the lack of scoring on steroid testing is that hitters weren't the only players using performance-enhancing drugs. Many pitchers have been caught, and if hitters have stopped using, so have pitchers.
Still, scoring is on pace to be at its lowest level in more than 20 years, and there has been a steady decline in runs per game since the MLB expanded its drug testing in 2006.
"scoring is on pace to be at its lowest level in more than 20 years" <---- ugh, BORING
I don't care that people are playing smart. I want more runs!!!
