Are we going to blame his year-long slump on off-the-field issues, then?
Are we going to blame it on our team being noncompetitive?
Are we going to blame it on poor work ethic?
Are we going to blame it on coaching?
Are we going to blame it on his age?
It's as feasible as any of the other excuses being thought of for his decline over the past two years.
No, it's really not. There's a lot of perfectly explainable reasons to believe why Starlin has been struggling. And, likely, there isn't just one answer. Implying he could have taken PED's isn't one of them. PED's don't give you bat-to-ball skills. That's what made Starlin great. You can site his timing and new approach to why his bat-to-ball skills haven't been as good, which makes sense. There could be other reasons why his bat-to-ball skills diminished too.... implying that PED's are the reason why is seriously so ill-informed it's comical.
