Is there proof that steroids can improve one's playing ability?

Here's my list. I'm a bit more liberal with PED guys. I don't think it's as big a deal as most. But I also think Rose should be in the hall with a huge explanation of his transgressions where his name in mentioned.

Jeff Bagwell
Craig Biggio
Barry Bonds
Roger Clemens
Edgar Martinez
Mark McGwire
Dale Murphy
Mike Piazza
Sammy Sosa
Alan Trammell

Because you only need proof for things that don't fit your own preconceived notions amirite? Doesn't really make sense to have two different burdens of proof. An illegal drug is an illegal drug.

If you can't vote for Bonds, who exactly CAN you vote for?

7 MVPs
8 Gold Gloves
762 HRs

1st all-time in BBs
1st all-time in INTENTIONAL walks
2nd all-time in extra base hits
3rd all-time in AB/HR
4th all-time in total bases
4th all-time OPS
10 times highest OBP in NL
7 times highest SLG in NL

Why is he not an instant, don't-even-worry-about-voting inductee?

Because he took something that wasn't against the rules at the time?
Oh no think of the children. Why isn't someone thinking of the children etc etc

In a last ditch effort to dissuade GiantsFan and Aussie from hijacking this thread into a debate that no one else seems to want to have, I offer the following photo of baby ducks and a kitten, in hopes that it's cuteness will lull them into a state of bliss.

Just looked it up, Babe Ruth #1 all time OPS. God amongst men. The Hall of Fame should be just George Herman Ruth and they should have a 2nd class of HOF for everyone else.

I keep saying that if Maddux isn't a unanimous selection next year then there never will be one.
4 CY awards, well liked and doesn't seem to have any steroid rumors.

I agree with you about Maddux. Should be one of the easier and smoothest HOF inductions(and unanimous) in recent years.
