The Boston Red Sox are coming off of the 2018 World Series with their 4th World Series title in the last 15 years. They finally broke the curse back in 2004 and haven’t looked back. Winning last year was expected when you spend $240m in payroll. Buying championships is so in right now. What’s worse than buying championships? It’s the condoning of Domestic Violence and PEDs.
Last Spring, news broke that Steven Wright was suspended 15 games for violating MLB’s Domestic Violence policy. Fresh off their WS championship, and what do they do? They go out and sign disgraced “Lifetime Ban” recipient Jenrry Mejia who has been suspended 3 times for PEDs and somehow gets a fourth chance at baseball. You might recall that while being the Mets’ closer, he was suspended on April 11, 2015, then again on July 28, 2015, and yet again on Feb. 12, 2016. It is true that Mejia is only 29 but what makes them think he won’t just go juice once again? This signing has had a backlash with current and former players who have taken to twitter:
What’s the point??? Smh

As you can see, it’s not only fans and journalists upset, it’s players. If we are going to allow “lifetime bans” to be unbanned, I think it’s about time we let Pete Rose back in and he deserves to be in the HOF next year. Who is with me?
