So you mean to tell me you wouldn’t do anything for money? Not even if you we’re a Pro Baseball player? ….
The Hall of fame is apart of the game’s legacy. And if you take it away, you’re taking away the great history of Baseball. How can somebody in a good consensus possibly do this? – – – It’s just not right. It’s taking apart of our history. We can’t just pretend we didn’t see players like Barry Bonds play. Steroids, or not fans still paied to see him play, and they came back for more because of him. More importunity, though: this is just a slap in the face to someone like Babe Ruth, and how can you do that? Steroids or not, this is a disgrace to Barry Bonds. But you’re probably thinking wait a minute: Wasn’t Bonds a disgrace to Baseball? N0, not when you hit 73 home-runs in a season (2001 season), and not when you hit 763 career home-runs.
I’m not going to let steroids dictate my Hall of Fame opinions. Why should I? Why should you? I mean I’m sure if you were playing you would do the exact same-thing. Let us not be the hypocrites that point with self-proclaimed “knowledge” we like to pretend that when someone is doing something like this we wouldn’t do it. – – – Please, I beg to differ. With that pay-check on the line, you’d probably do just about anything to get a raise, and by that I mean putting up big-time numbers. But it should be noted that a raise to you is pocket-change to someone like Josh Hamilton. So after this, I ask you, wouldn’t you do just about anything for money?
Let me answer this for you: Yes. Don’t be a hypocrite, but don’t embrace steroids, just look at the stats.
