Who are the cheaters? Can you pinpoint them?
No. Nobody can. That's the problem. You don't know who cheated and who didn't. For all we know, Derek Jeter was on steroids every year he led the Yankees to a World Series championship.
And that brings me to my next point...what do you do with team records? What about the Yankees beating the Red Sox in the 2003 ALCS? Giambi (steroid user) hit 2 homeruns in the deciding game. Boston would have been in the World Series if not for that.
How about Bonds in 2002? His team went to the World Series that year. Is it fair to the other teams in the playoffs that the Giants beat? The Giants had an unfair advantage by having Bonds on their roster. That's not fair, is it?
You see my point? There is no way to fairly eliminate records. You can't judge who has abused drugs and who hasn't. You can't change the past. You can only move forward, which is what baseball should do.
