Add Los Angeles Angels phenom Mike Trout to the list of ballplayers who think there should be stricter penalties for those who get caught using performance-enhancing drugs.
"To me, personally I think you should be out of the game if you get caught. It takes away from the guys that are working hard every day and doing it all-natural," Trout told Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on WFAN in New York on Monday. "It's tough as a guy that goes out there and plays hard every day and puts 110 percent effort every time and then you wake up the next day and see there's a list of guys that are on the list. It's good that MLB caught them and they're moving in the right direction with suspensions and stuff."
12 players accepted 50-game bans while A-Rod is appealing a 211-game suspension for their connections to Biogenesis, a clinic in Florida accused of peddling PEDs.
