Cocaine is a stimulant, like amphetamines. Similar advantages to both.
Exactly. Most of the stuff I've read suggests that amphetamines are the real problem in baseball. A large percentage of players relied on them to get through the grind. I don't see a real difference between a guy using amphetamines and a guy using cocaine. And I really don't care either way. The moralizing about illegal drug use is idiotic.
Bonds, Clemens, Aaron, and Raines all used illegal drugs during their careers. And all of them belong in the Hall of Fame.
