For those of us who are baseball fans & who enjoy the game for the talent, the power of the homerun, & the spectacular plays have to question what is going with Major League Baseball. Never mind the overpaid players, the rich teams getting richer well teams like the Jays are stewing with no hope of jockeying for a playoff spot.
I bring up Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, & Barry Bonds which two of them have admitted steroid use & Barry continues to deny. The game of baseball has become stained with names like the fore mentioned where modern stars have all but shattered the single season homerun record & the career record. Baseball was once a game of hero's, and a communion of families to enjoy the good ole game. But times have changed & the more we know the more the game will be questioned the popularity will keep on fading like a bad memory.
So here it is folks if Big Mac, Sosa, & Bonds took steroids one has to question if they belong in the Hall of Fame & if the records should be stripped giving the title the "King of Swat" back to Roger Marris & Hank Aaron. If any of these players should ever see the day of the Hall of Fame then the Eight Men Out of the Black Sox should be reinstated & so shouldn't Pete Rose.
baseball is dead in canada, the participation rates have plumeted, the expos are gone and all the tripple A teams have left canada too. I don't care if the players took juice Bonds was still a great player before he took them in 1998 but mcguire and sosa were 1 dimensional players who needed juice just to play.
