  2. If true, what kind of punishment will he suffer? Strip him of his home run record? Delete his stats? Large monetary fine? Anything?
  3. At least we know now why he was always in a bad mood.

    None of these guys will ever see the Hall of Fame. How can they let Bonds and the other 'roid heads in the Hall and keep Pete Rose out?
  4. i think he'll still get in. gambling on baseball is the unpardonable sin, while juicing wasn't even against baseball's bylaws until last year (or was it '04?). he established his Hall of Fame credentials before '98.

    out of protest, the writers may make him sweat it out the first year, but he should get in by his second year of eligibility.
  5. You may be right. Baseball has become a joke. Steroid use is illegal, but it's ok in baseball if it gets fans in the ballparks. Of course, there is some potential for unfairness in penalizing people who have never tested positive, at least that we know of, but it also seems unfair to the players whose records are being broken by cheaters.

    Baseball commissioned a special investigation into Pete Rose. Maybe they should do the same for steroids. Instead, they just want the whole subject to go away.

    It's not like there is a great big secret of which potential Hall of Famers were likely users. Bonds, McGuire, Sosa, Palmeira come to mind.
  6. this sob is a disgrace to the black race.
  7. Even if the story is true, he broke no MLB rules, as they had no rules against steroids, and no testing.

    Baseball itself won't strip him of anything.

    It is up to the sportswriters to decide his Hall of Fame status.

    why don't you spell "gay" correctly?

    that's what you meant, isn't it?
