Because major league baseball is against the use of performance enhancing drugs

"The St. Louis Cardinals have scheduled a midday news conference amid reports that Tampa native Tony La Russa will return for a 15th season as manager and possibly bring Mark McGwire as hitting coach. . . . The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has reported La Russa will return, and was negotiating with McGwire to be the hitting coach . . . McGwire hit a record 70 home runs in 1998, a mark since topped by Barry Bonds. McGwire has largely been out of the public eye since retiring in 2001. He attended Congressional hearings on steroid abuse, and has fallen far short in balloting for the Hall of Fame despite 583 homers."

The fact that McGwire's even being seriously considered for the job proves that MLB is still ignoring and enabling steroid abuse.
