    I come back for additional comment because this matter is "intriguing". Gold states, in the article:

    "Only the grand sport of baseball can author such a tale. Only the national pastime devours its own history and flushes it into the septic tank of time. No other sport so willingly sprays graffiti all over its biggest stars, and they do so at a steep price. Only baseball. - For that, they deserve tons of credit. - Call this the high cost of integrity."

    "... devours its own history - flushes it into the SEPTIC TANK of time"??? "...so willingly sprays graffitti all over its biggest stars"??? I'm not 100% sure what Gold intended those statements to mean, but strongly suspect they may be interpreted in other ways. I like the statement "they deserve tons of credit" - assumingly for being willing to "call out" in a public way the "biggest stars" for misdeeds damaging to the INTEGRITY of the sport, but the following "Call this the high cost of integrity." - is a statement with which I struggle! I'm mature and experienced enough to not be "navive", but to me - speaking of integrity as "costing" me something is an 'oxymoron"! Profit or loss? Does that not have be considered as something "out of balance"? A loss is generally a "negative" balance... we have more negative than positive. If money... we are "in the red". Our expenses exceeded our revenue. We have profits... we are "in the black". However, all things cannot - in spite of how many look at the world of sport today - CANNOT be measured exclusively by "dollars". If baseball, or any sport, loses "integrity", the rules mean NOTHING or very little... what do you have? IMO - you have NOTHING of value!!! Do we ever want to suggest that "a little loss of integrity" is "OK" if the monetary gain or the numberr of "wins" equal/exceeds a certain number??? To suggest that integrity "costs" something is to suggest that "integrity" could possibly cost "too much" and could therefore be justifiably sacrificed!!

    The high cost of integrity??? Are you kidding - Mr. Gold? I have never looked at my integrity costing me anything because what is worth more than a person's integrity? What would the cost be to MLB if it had no integrity? Now THAT would be a HUGE cost!!!1

    It may be a "high cost", of integrity but do the players that juiced really deserve to be inducted into the HOF when they didn't rely on their God-given talent alone to amass those eye-popping numbers? It just doesn't seem fair to the players who didn't enhance their numbers with steroids. At least Selig is trying to level the playing field.
