I don't think they do. Even if the stat sheet reads one way, those guys will never generate the level of respect Aaron earned for himself by playing the game how he did.

No one should be surprised about the newest PED scam, Braun failed his test a few years ago, and got off on a technicality. Look at David Ortiz right now, yea right he isn't using something.

One of the worst things about all the steroid/ HGH baseball stuff is that its truly the fountain of youth, our country has soured on it so much but in small, controlled doses 60 would feel like 40.

As for Rose, unless he is proven to be illiterate, he has to be banned. In every major league clubhouse, most of them posted above the door, there is a sign, all the players know it and so do media members. If you bet on baseball, you will be banned for life. No exceptions.

Alex Rodriguez of New York Yankees says he is not ready to talk about PED scandal with Biogenesis, Tony Bosch - ESPN New York
Quote:
Alex Rodriguez said Thursday he is not ready to talk about the alleged connection between him and the founder of a Miami-area clinic at the heart of an ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal in Major League Baseball.

"Myself and others are being mentioned in a media report before the process is even concluded," Rodriguez said in a statement. "I would hope this thing would follow the guidelines of our Basic Agreement. I will monitor the situation and comment when appropriate.

Not ready to talk? What sort of preparation would an innocent man need to make before coming out and saying "I didn't do it?"


and.....Howard Bryant offers an excellent analysis of the difficulties MLB will be facing in trying to impose these suspensions
Biogenesis scandal will test MLB labor peace - ESPN

It wouldn't be fair to look at a player and come to conclusion that "he's using something" based on his age and performance.
Unless I'm missing something he's not linked to the current scandal at all. I don't see any proof that he's using anything this season.

There is a columnist who wrote an article accusing him because of his first 14 games of the season. It wasn't very convincing to most obviously.

I'm not a Redsox fan or Yankees fan.
Just my opinion..
