    If baseball was like track and field there would be no controversy; if you’re caught cheating not only they erase your stats from the record books but they take your awards away and go after some of the money you’ve earn during that period. But since that won’t happen I think Alex Rodriguez will be the 1st test case where we’ll see a Steroids Era ballplayer may get into the Hall. He gets in and others of that era will follow.

    But there already ARE cheaters in the Hall of Fame. Baseball is faced with a situation in which if they don’t place players of the Steroid Era in the Hall of Fame, then they do not have the best collection of talent in their Hall or if they do place players of the Steroid Era in the Hall of Fame, purists will feel that the Hall is tainted. Either way, the Hall loses credibility in the eyes of a very large group of people.
