    And you would lose that bet.

    It's just laughable to say that "you don't hear a peep" from Rose because he knew he cheated. Except for the fact that he denied it for years and has applied for reinstatement multiple times and has appealed to the Hall to change their rule.

    I aim not only to inform but to entertain as well. I'm pretty much on the mark on both fronts consistently.

    I think we can all take something away from this that's useful.

    Sadly I understand this ... not the chalkboard, but your sentence.

    For the record I would vote Sosa and McGwire in (after Bonds and Clemens) based on that one magical season that saved baseball after the strike (or lock out).

    Sammy also had the corked bat incident which made him look like he just had to have something to help him hit homers.

    As I recall, and was refreshed by this link, McGwire basically went in the back door on that. The so-called "health reasons" ... almost everyone who used PEDs could say that since it actually was partially true for a lot of them. I personally never had an issue with him and he hit some home runs that I still can't believe. A couple of them in Miami for sure.

    I recall back when we had a stats league. I had Glenn Davis, I recall, as my 1B and McGwire as my backup. McGwire was coming off a .205 season or some such. Davis got hurt the first day or so and I had to put McGwire in. He responded with something like 11 home runs the first 3 weeks of the season.
