I keep hearing that, even though we know they cheated, we can't remove Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Mark McGwire from baseball's record books.

Sure we can. It's easy. Here's how.

Simply write the following entries into the record book.

Most home runs in a season, Roger Maris, 61 in 1961

Most home runs career, Henry Aaron, 755.

Why pretend Bonds', McGwire's and Sosa's accomplishments were legitimate?  Why let kids think the way to break records is to cheat?

As far as I'm concerned Roger Maris and Henry Aaron are baseball's home run kings.

I don't care what the record books say.

Where can I comment?
