    The way things are going in baseball, I think they'll have to put an * next to the names of players who DIDN'T take steriods.

    On some levels it just seems wrong to punish guys retroactively based primarily on suspicion of what they may have done. We're all pretty sure of what they did, but have no way of proving exactly who did what at this point. The fact is that people had to know this was going on long before it became a media circus and baseball made huge profits marketing these guys. Then as soon as they have served their function baseball turns their collective backs on these guys and treats them like dirt.

    McGwire and Sosa chasing Maris's single season home run record was what got baseball fully back on its feet after the strike. While it may seem underhanded and morally wrong, there were no rules against what they were doing at the time. Lots of people thought Ty Cobb was a dirty player and a racist, but I've been to Cooperstown and sure enough he has a plaque along with all the other greats from generations past. The rules governing steroid and PED use did not come into play until the last 3-4 years. Baseball would retain far more credibility by admitting they made a mistake, and moving forward instead of continuing to conduct witch hunts based in the past.

    They all use(d) it...... this is not some news-breaking story.

    Why are you bringing up just a couple of players in this, their are hundreds that tested positive, not just 3 or 4, I mean man Big Papi does not mean Big Papi, it is just a nickname, give him a break and some other players, yes steroids are bad but back then in the early 1990s to early millineum era, who didn't use them in baseball. Look who started all this talk in the first place, Jose open a can of Seco.
