Yep. Probably b/c greenies vs. steroids (and other drugs that are given to animals) are not comparable to a lot of those people. You? You think greenies are equivalent to steroids and other animal drugs. Such is your right... as it is the rights of those who think different than yoruself.
So the 60+ HRs/Yr. club gets entered multiple times in 5 years. Only twice before in MLB history. Guess that greenie thing is only good for the long-term (career) thing.
Got a problem with Hank or Willie? Fine. Don't have a problem with them? Fine. Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire... they are a different group. They did different drugs. Public perceptions change. I choose not to compare anyone in today's game with those who have been retired for a long time. I will not defend a drug user and cheater b/c others before him may have done it. Want to defend Barry? Fine. But do not drag the names of others through Barry's mud while doing it. That is not an argument... that is an excuse.
