It was nice to see McGwire didn't make the list. I always knew he was clean. :D

Once hitting a home run that landed on the rooftop of a building across Waveland Avenue behind the left field side of Wrigley Field. It is believed that this is the only time a home run has landed on the roof of any building neighboring the outfield bleachers of this ballpark.

Add a asterisk to this one


We're talking about Glenallen Hill. He can do what ever he wants when he wants. ONe of my favorite Cub Personalities of my era. No body, and I mean nobody, can pimp a home run like Glen Allen, ande the half buttoned down jersey. You just don't seee that any more.
NO!......Welp!?

Honestly Griffey? I don't know about that one buddy.


I know - I'm just going by the fact that he was a guy that had several BIG years followed by many years of injuries. I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised. I don't know that he was one anybody has pointed the finger of suspicion at like Clemens, McGwire, Sosa etc. Maybe the fact that his body broke down as he got a little older is an argument that he DIDN'T juice...

The problem is that EVERY player in the last 10 or so years is now suspect. They will all forever be labeled as 'played in the steroid era' whether they juiced or not.

I interpret that as a disadvantage for most of them, though, playing against guys that are juicing.

Actually not at all. Griffey will never be labeled as 'played in the steroid era'. Do you honestly watch baseball or not? The guy played outfield with a passion that you don't see out of everybody. He hustled and laid out when need be. That's how he got hurt, not roids. Watch the game and then you talk, until then don't talk of something you know little about.

Wow! Anyone else see Fernando Vina's interview on ESPN regarding his steroid use? Definately not convincing at all. TaTaTaTaToday Jr. I think all these guys in the report are going to say they didn't hear from Mitchell, only took HGH, and took HGH to recover quicker from injury.

not bad, with the exception of the NL wild card coming out of the weak NL Central.

NL wild card was anyone's to take last year. I think the NL west is pretty much up for grabs, anyone but SF should contend for it.
