    Mark McGwire's steroids confession is fine, but he should never go to the Hall of Fame. Whats you opinion?

    Yes...but before Barry Bonds.

    Steriods only gave him a few more feet. He would have hit most of the HR anyway.He easily cleared the fence on almost every one of them. Steriods didn't make much of a difference. Half of his at bats that year were walks anyway...trying to keep him from hitting the damned things.

    Bonds wasn't an HR hitter till he got on the juice so it effected him more.

    look at the history of hitting 50 hr's....
    every decade since Ruth first hit 50,there have been 2-4 guys a decade reaching 50....the seventies only once,the eighties no one did....something like 18 times from 1923 til 1989....in the nineties that number was exceeded....in just a 10 year period.....guys who never hit 40 (Bonds,Sosa) were now hitting 60-70 .....
