When discussing steroids and Barry Bonds, people often point out that Major League Baseball didn't ban steroids until after the 2002 season.
But why should that matter? Possession of steroids without a prescription is a federal crime.
There's nothing in the baseball rulebook against homicide, either.
As a result, a convicted murderer can take solace that although he's on Death Row, at least he hasn't lost his eligibility to play baseball.
