Roger Clemens! Alex Rodriguez! Who's Next?

Ari HoringSenior Analyst IFebruary 10, 2009

" It was such a Lucy Gucy era", Alex Rodriquez said.....To be honest I don't know what substances I was guilty of taking."

A-Rod is right about the era being lucy gucy.

Maybe we should just not let anyone from the steroid era in to the Hall of Fame?

It seems unfair to me to allow certain people in and other's not considering anyone could have been using steroids.

Who’s to say Ken Griffey Jr. didn’t take steroids?

Who’s to say anyone else didn’t take  steroids?

Now that A-Rod, one of the few supposed clean power hitters from the steroid era has admitted to using steroids, is the Hall of Fame committee going to rethink their strategy?

How many voters have said they won’t vote for anyone who used steroids even once.

A-Rod supposedly hasn’t used steroids since 2003, but has still been arguably the best player in the MLB. Is there a difference if he used steroids early in his career compared to Bonds, who used them later. Or is he just as guilty?

When Steroids were deemed by baseball and the media as the “unforgivable baseball sin,” the obvious users whose numbers spiked were Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds.

Now that we find out more and more  how many other big name players used steroids, should it really be so unforgivable.

Are we targeting the wrong people?

Every time a player gets alleged or admits to using steroids their career takes such a huge hit.

However, if there are so many people that have done this “unforgivable sin,” obviously the institution itself is at fault.

The truth is that the MLB allowed to this happen. They sat by, gained all of the financial resources, and did nothing to stop or prevent this at the time.

Why was Major League Baseball the last major sports organization in the United States to implement a comprehensive drug testing policy?

We need to forgive all the players who used steroids and move on, because such a large majority of people used them.

The entire era itself is at fault and it’s unfair to target individual players.

If a teacher stands by and allows half of a class to cheat on a test, are the students really cheating then?

The truth is that the amount of people who uses steroids is probably more than we even realize.

Who is going to be the next baseball player to get their image tarnished because of Steroids?

I wonder how many players who used steroids are right now wondering when their name is going to somehow get revealed to the public.

We have to face reality. This problem can’t ever be fixed. The records books are always going to have an asterisk next to them.

But we can be put the steroid era behind us, learn from it, and move on. By punishing those who get caught we aren't going to be able move on.

As much as people might not want this too happen, McGwire, Sosa, and all the other alleged steroid users need to be forgiven and put them in the Hall of Fame in order for baseball to move on. 

If we can’t put them in, then, then why should anyone else from the steroid era should be allowed in?
