The record books have been tainted with cheaters as of late.
The days of the epic home run showdown between Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa can no longer be looked at as shining moments for Americas past time. While that chase might have rekindle the flame of the the MLB's fans, those who sat and watched feel cheated.
We should feel cheated. Players who made us "Oooh" and "Ahh" are no longer heroes, but players who decided that their God given ability was not enough. They needed just a little bit more.
While some players owned up to their mistakes, others still live in a falsified world and have convinced themselves that they never did anything to get an edge on the competition.
Selfish players leave behind inflated stats. The statistic that ballooned the most due to these rampant times was the home run.
