With all the recent problems with steroids surfacing as of late, how do you guys think that effects Baseball when it comes to trying to get the sport back into the Olympics come 2016?

If they don't take Baseball in 2016, would you think it would be mainly because of the steroid problem? Do you think it would make it if there weren't any steroid stories surfacing?

Discuss!

yes,but i dont think the roid scandal will have an effect one way or another,the only way its coming back is making inroads into europe,or diversify its euro centric governing body to more western hemisphere and eastern asian where baseball is more accepted

True. But I just wonder how much of an effect the steroids will have on the popularity of the sport growing overseas.
