i think as we move away from the roids era, it will balance itself out again.

AL definitely had the advantage during the roids era because AL teams were built around batting and it was all about hitting the longball. well more so than NL, which always focused on pitching/defense.

The "roids era" hasn't ended and will never end.

Manny Ramirez was using masking agents to get by those tests (that's what he was caught with)...why don't you think anybody else is?

Smoltz has valuable AL East experience now. Why do you think Carpenter is so good? :-D
