Ahead in the Count


How will this affect his Hall of Fame chances?

Will the Dodger’s make the playoffs?

Do you believe him that the substance he tested positive for was as a result of a legitmate medical issue?  Does it matter?

Does the fact the substance is often used to speed up recovery after a steroid cycle make him guilty of juicing?

Can we ever trust the offensive numbers from anyone over the last 10 years?

What do we now make of players like Albert Pujols, Jim Thome, and Griffey, Jr. (the only big time sluggers still playing who haven’t tested positive PEDs)?   Are they guilty by association?

  1. 1. Rightly or wrongly, it will absolutely impact his HOF status. Just as it has for Big Mac – and will shortly for Bonds and Clemens.

    2. Dodgers make the playoffs because Either, Kemp, Loney, Billingsley and Kershaw are enough in that division – and Manny will be back before we know it.

    3. I think the numbers of the past 15 years (call it 1995 – 2006, more or less) basically have to be judged against each other – on a sliding scale.

    All sad – all frustrating to have to discuss
