Besides that, do you think everyone that reaches the 500 HR plateau should be an instant hall of famer?
Frank Thomas hit his 500th HR...
But guys like Sosa that passed the 600 HR mark... with his alleged steroid use... will he get in?
It's funny, at the time of his mark the news was praising him for how a prolific hitter he is and so on... but did not mention anything about alleged doping.
What about McGwire and Bonds? Will they be inducted?
What gets me is that baseball acts like they never saw this train coming even when McGwire and Sosa were chasing Maris. Everyone knew... but because baseball was in the dumps and those guys pretty much brought baseball back to the American fore-front as America's Game everyone turned their cheek to doping. A lot had to do with the way they were. They were likeable and media friendly, something Bonds is not.
Yet, now these once celebrated and loved heroes are criminals. Why do we and the media build people up and just tear them down?
