Two of the best posts I've seen on the board. What's worst about what all of them did was tarnish the clean ball players that probably were hall of famers but who's careers look less then based off of their cheating. My favorite ball player from that whole era was Maddux. Was never a huge Griffey fan but my respect for him rapidly grew as his career had a normal progression. He'd be number two during that time for me.
What about all the speed taken in the 70's and 80's? Not really sure if these guys were any worse than anybody else from any generation. They just happened to have different things available to be tempted.
