Drew Litton: The Truth, the Whole Truth...

S3CL_DREW0219-copy.gif

There is a right way and a wrong way to do things. The Pettitte-Clemens approach to the HGH mess in baseball is as different as night and day. Pettitte's response was done with respect and transparency. It is the perfect example (along with Matt Herges and Glenallen Hill of the Rockies) of how to deal with the problem. Clemens has only soiled his already tattered reputation.

This drawing fought me every step of the way. I struggled with the Pettitte caricature, so much so that I literally redrew the thing in photoshop using a Wacom tablet. It happens sometimes that a drawing just doesn't click, but I liked the idea so I kept at it.

I'll be taking a few days off to work on some animation. Be back on Friday with a new toon.

    These players saying they're sorry doesn't change the fact that they are and always will be cheaters.
    Every player that is found to have been involved in the use or distribution of HGH, Steroids, or other PED's should not only be banned from the game permanently, but should have all of their records erased as if they never even played a single MLB game. We need to make examples of these players that cheating will not be tolerated and if MLB actually threw the hammer down hard by stripping these players of all their "accomplishments",then other players might get the real message. Just toss out every statistic that Clemens, Tejada, Bonds, etc. ever put up.
    That would show these players that MLB actually means business.

    Of course, there's too much money involved in baseball, so none of this would ever happen. Money is all that matters to Bud and company.

    The players aren't the ones that should be punished. It's the commissioner Bud Selig who should be banned for life.

    He knew what was going on back when McGwire and Sosa were jacking bombs and bringing fans back to the stadiums. However, he overlooked it because that was were the money was. Now we have a fake all-time homerun king and a fake nearly all-time strikeout leader. Nolan Ryan should give both of them a beat down.
