Re: When/If You Played A Sport Did You Cheat To Win?
I heard Fred Smerlas making this point today on the radio, and I agree with him.
The problem with the baseball thing is that you can't just toss these records. All these guys who passed Maris were using, but, how can you prove Maris wasn't using? He went from 31 HR to 61 in one year and never hit over 30 again. I know he had Mantle in front of him, blah, blah, blah, but can you prove he wasn't on steroids? So, whose records do you cut? Was Reggie Jackson on the juice? How about Roger Clemens? He went down and down from '93 to '96 with the Red Sox, then boom, he goes 21 and 7, and 20 and 6 with Toronto.
So, what can you do with these enhanced records? Nothing, gotta live with 'em.
