No: There's an inspiring crop of young, supposedly clean players.
Sure, the '90s and early 2000s were a major black eye on MLB, and it'll be hard to forget anti-heroes like Rafael Palmeiro, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa. But do you know who is going to help make forgetting those guys a lot easier? Up-and-coming stars like Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, and Manny Machado, a crop of players who have shown flashes of brilliance without any of the controversy of their predecessors. You think you're in need of someone to root for? How can you not cheer for a guy like Mike Trout, who very nearly won the AL MVP during his rookie season? There's plenty of talented young stars like this in league, fans just need to start looking at them and stop living in the past.
