If you object to the apparently rampant steroids in baseball, don't watch it at all in person and on TV and don't buy products advertised at the stadiums, on TV or otherwise connected with the sport or endorsed by its players. It will free up a lot of time for other productive activities and save you a lot of money. It seems to me that if the sport was serious about addressing the problem, it would require regular or continuous testing (all players hitting above a certain level, the top 50% of pitchers, etc.). The manner in which the players union fights testing and the owners acquiesce shows they don't care. They may change their tune if a quarter of the fan base had standards (unlikely) and quit supporting the sport in its current form.
