Sorry if this is off topic, but I just thought of that. Seems he would be brought up sometimes, retired or not.


to me that was just a fluke season and we have zero evidence to suggest other wise.

Roger Maris hit 61 and never came close again, was he on roids too?


Um Brady Anderson hit 13-24 HR's (besides his *magical season) during his prime. He averaged much closer to the 13. If memory serves me right Maris hit 20+/30+ a few times in a much tougher era to go deep. Your comparision blows

Seems to me that your example just bolstered wrveres' point.

The early 60s was not a tougher era to hit HRs in compared to the mid-90s.

Sorry... I hadn't realized that he told you that over dinner one evening. ;-7

Hey, since you're saying that the only way to explain his jump to 50+ is that he was on steroids, then I guess you're assuming he stopped juicing after that year since his HR #'s normalized after that? He probably had a guilty conscience, right? Or do you think he was still juicing when his numbers came back to earth the next year?

Well if Pierre does hit 50, it can obviously only be due to a fluke season and not steroid abuse according to some.

But a guy like Barry who has always had some pop in his bat has a big year, and it must be the 'roids.

This is from an article on Baseball Prospectus today, by Will Carroll:

The scariest thing is that it doesn’t look like we’re done with this, the debate or the suspensions. Multiple sources in baseball have confirmed to me that there are ongoing appeals and/or grievances, portending future suspensions. It’s unclear how long this process takes, though indications from both the Palmeiro and Ryan Franklin cases give a two to three month timeline from test to suspension. Yes, this means that there are players out there on fields now, perhaps affecting pennant races, leading categories, or heading towards winning awards, that are facing suspensions at some point. It’s also possible that some of these procedures might not be finished during this season. This isn’t about naming names or questioning the necessary due process.

Obviously it had NOTHING to do with a guilty conscience and everything to do with the 31 million dollar contract he signed in '97.

Before you bash someone else's deduction on this OBVIOUS FRAUD please grow up and realize what the TRUE IMPETUS for steroid use is.....

bling bling.
