Well, pitchers havent been pointed out yet.
From what Ive read and heard on the radio the Mitchell report is supposed to name up to 300 players involved with HGH, steroids and amphetemines.
I dont disagree with what your saying about records, but I also dont agree with all of it. Hitters for the last decade have been facing watered down pitching. Pitching is a skill, much more difficult to master than batting, and there just arent enough of them around to make competitive staffs for ALL the MLB teams. In fact, I think its pretty weak. I also think there is going to be several pitchers ( Clemons , Petite, Prior ) that are going to be named on that list. I do think achiveing 300 wins now is impressive, but only because pitchers are such prima donnas nowadays.
Heres the thing I struggle with. In the 50s, 60s, and even 70s it was common to enter a clubhouse and see a bowl full of pills. Uppers, Downers, steroids, whatever. Ive read several books from former players that openly talk about it. Why is it none of those records or players are called into question? They are performance enhancing drugs like HGH.
I think the game back there wasnt worth as much, nor was one persons charector when speaking of the whole team. In this day and age there is too much money involved and star power is what is making the most. Pete Rose is the only person in 20+ years of my baseball experiance to ever catch the shitstorm, and thats because he gambled on his team. Bonds will walk away fine, his record will stand, and god willing A-Rod will be clean and beat it.
