What difference does it make? Everyone is on the juice these days. I still think A-Rod is A-mazing. Does the allegation tarnish his career accomplishments? Not any more than any other player from our time.

I think contemporary baseball records have to be viewed in context. But that doesn't make me value a player's accomplishments any less.

"EVERYONE is on the juice these days." Oh Really?? The logic you put forth amazes me.

I won't fully make a judgement about A-Rod until further information comes out but if it's definetely proven he's been using, I'm not going to just pass it off as you just did.

Yeah, I'm able to just pass it off. Baseball with or without steroids is still very exciting to me. The approach to the game may have changed, but the drama of a 3-2 count remains the same from my perspective. I'm just a spectator, so it makes little difference to me.

Wow dranon, your assumptions are ridiculous. I won't be back so don't bother replying. People like you are deaf, DUMB, and blind and it's impossible to have an intelligent conversation with someone whose views are as twisted as yours.

Maybe a little Prozac would help Ms. D.
