Re: Grace accuses Sosa of juicing
Of the prominient players who have been accused of using steriods and similar chemical enhancements, Barry Bonds is the only one whom I am confident was a Hall of Fame quality talent without the juice. Bonds's alleged steroid use reportedly started after the 1998 season; at that point he was already a three time MVP winner and had career numbers worthy of the HOF had he retired then.
As for the rest of the alleged steroid users, such as McGwire, Palmiero and Sosa, absent the juice I very much doubt that they would have had HOF worthy careers. That doubt alone would be enough to keep me from voting for their induction into the HOF.
