I dislike the fact that he and others [Sosa, McGwire, etc.] used performance enhancing drugs. No I wouldn't feel any less animosity if he hit less HR. I'd respect him more if he just came out and said yea I did PED's and I am or am not sorry for it and this is why.
I appreciate the fact that he didn't try to "market" himself by putting up a facade like Sosa with his sprinting to RF, the "Sammy hop" his little kiss, kiss, chest bump thank you God act. McGwire with his still friends with my ex-wife, Big Mac Mcdonalds, all-american nice guy charade. Then he and Sosa's quasi-homosexual encounters on the middle of the diamond when the record was broke. Pre-planned of course to market their cheap, unfairly accomplished, ill gotten gains to maximize profits off of [among others] impressionable young ten year olds such as myself.
I think he should make the HoF unlike Sosa, McGwire, Palmeiro because of his pre-PED resume.
I also think MLB is lucky it still has fans after that crap it pulled.
