Cards' Holiday Forgives Peralta For PED Use

Cardinals outfielder Matt Holiday is offering an olive branch to new teammate Jhonny Peralta. A staunch critic of players with ties to performance-enhancing drugs, Holiday says he is willing to forgive the 31-year-old shortstop. Holiday said at the Cardinals' Winter Warm-Up this week that he is against PEDs and always will be, but Peralta served his suspension under the rules and he's happy to now have him as a teammate. Peralta was given a 50-game ban last season while with the Detroit Tigers as part of the Biogenesis clinic scandal. Peralta signed a four-year, 53-million-dollar contract with St. Louis this offseason.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
