Mike Trout Wants PED Users Banned For Life

Angels all-everything OF doesn’t take any PEDs and if it were up to him, anyone who does would get the door permanently slammed on their careers.

From ESPN:

"To me, personally, I think you should be out of the game if you get caught," Trout said Monday during an interview with New York radio station WFAN. "It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural."

Bold words from Trout here, as many players have sort of skirted around the issue. They’ll definitely detail to anyone who asks that they are against drugs, but this stance is rare. A lifetime ban would certainly give any player pause before he decided to take that risk. The way it is now, the money overflow from hitting a bunch of homers is worth getting pinched for drug abuse. But a lifetime ban, yeah, that will shut things down quick.
