    Mcgwire is a joke and jerk

    Dont be ignorant baseball writers of america, he would have retired early due to injury had it not been for the juice. and he would have ended with maybe 300 homeruns and a 256 average for his career. that ist even Veterans Committee elected HOF numbers yo

    also it pisses me off whenever people bring up canseco even though he is the ONLY one to step up and admit baseball's lies..Mcgwire is the next most guiltiest player after Canseco and nobody ever talks about him anymore.

    he gets a free pass..why? I bought canseco's book the day it came out and loved it and believed him from Day 1 (based on my personal experiences and relationships with some braves players I know)

    Thank goodness the Reds beat the As in that World Series. I think we'd see some serious anger towards the Bash Brothers had they thumped the Reds.

    But they didn't.

    Let's find out who's ignorant here.

    Add all of his pre 1993 (he was out almost the entire year with a major knee/back injury) homeruns and see what you get

    Yeah, there were a few doubts but they were all erased when Eric Davis hit that homer. Man that was a great series and a great year.

    Why would he cooperate? He doesn't play anymore and he faces no legal consequences for nto cooperating. He has nothing to gain. Not that I'm trying to defend the guy, his legacy is quite certain at this point, but I sure as hell don't blame him for not cooperating with this investigation.

    McGwire has nothing to gain dealing with this commision. He compromised the integrity of the game. He needs to hide in shame and never to be seen in public again.

    I added them up, but the sum wasn't "early retirement due to injury."

    Wanna try a new tact?

    Re: Mcgwire is a joke and jerk

    A friend of mine was playing golf about a month ago and McGwire was in the group ahead of him, he took a few pics with his cell phone. He's still as big as a house, so if he was on roids or HGH I guess he's still using them.

    I'm tired of the andro talk when it comes to McGwire, it was perfectly legal and you could purchase it in any GNC store.

    Nobody talks about McGuire anymore because he retired years ago and has avoided the public. (And when he came out into public - the Senate hearings - he was ripped & ridiculed by media and fans.)

    People talk about Conseco because he wants and seeks out attention.

    It looks like he's just saying he wouldn't even be discussed for the HOF if it wasn't for the juice.

    If I was a voter for the Hall of Fame, when McGwire's name appears on the ballot I would say "I'm not here to talk about the past" and I wouldn't vote for him.

    Re: Mcgwire is a joke and jerk

    If I was a voter for the HOF............whenever I came to McGwire, Sosa, or Bonds name......I'd scribble it out and write Rose.

    Who comprimised the game more?
    Who's on first?
