Someone please wake me up in a few years when (hopefully) everyone stops talking about steroids. This topic has been beaten to death. When are we going to move on and get over it?
People cheated. MLB let them. Records are tainted.
...But I am ready to move on. Baseball has been a great game for 150 years and it has a very bright future. It survived the Black Sox scandal and flourished and it will survive the needle (or cream/clear or whatever).
Baseball is and will always be our national pastime. Steroid users like Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds cannot and will not destroy Baseball...as much as some posters here seem to want them to.
"There has always been a saying in baseball that you can't make a hitter, but I think you can improve a hitter. More than you can improve a fielder. More mistakes are made hitting than in any other part of the game."
- Ted Williams
"I know I'm the world's worst fielder, but who gets paid for fielding? There isn't a great fielder in baseball getting the kind of dough I get paid for hitting."
- Dick Stuart
