    Did steriods ruin the game of baseball?

    Many people are starting to wonder if performance enhancing drugs have made it easier for so many players to become stars in the game of baseball.

    yes it have to many degrees , the use of this drug has kill the true game
    homeruns flying now left and right with a half swing
    it hit hard at great players like Mark McGwire was his 70 off steriods
    some doubt brutha BONDS 72 blast and even SOSA 66 giving bad name
    and shame to true greats like Reggie Jackson // Lou Brock // Earnie Banks
    Ted Williams // Jackie Robinson // Babe Ruth and many more

    I definately think this steriods scandal hurts baseball. The people in question aren't minor players. They are the biggest stars of the MLB from the past few years. I think every star performance...record breaking performance will be questioned for some time. There is good reason for doing so!

    I'm not really up on baseball, or any sport for that matter ... but this seems like a very bad thing. It is encouraging the youth to depend on such things, rather than their raw talent. I heard on the news yesterday, that they are thinking of wiping out the stats for those folk who are proven to have used these drugs. I think they should wipe out their numbers.

    I agree because these players didn't get these numbers alone
    but by the use of steriods to build them up surely Mark McGwire
    record should be dem this what put his back out using this drug
    but did B.Bonds really use this in his feat to 72 homeruns ??
    and was Sammy Sosa using this as well is the question !

    I agree Destee! To keep the integrity of the game intact, if proven to have been on steriods at the time they broke records, those records should be erased.
