Although, pitchers from the dead ball era are given a break, so maybe i don't know what i'm talking about.

However, I'm not a McGwire fan, but the fact that Baseball was on his and sammy's nuts to recover from the strike, i think it's hypocritical how they treat these guys. MLB knew what was going on and now it's like they have the plague.


why should there be different milestones when many of the pitchers they faced were juicing as well?

That's a good point, i don't know. You know the numbers aren't just skewed by the juice, the balls were juiced and the ballparks were being built incredibly small. It was just a thought. What an ugly era huh? i mean i enjoyed the Giants those years they were good and 2002 was awesome, but looking back, how terrible was it. Guys were hitting 50 bombs like nothing. Brady Anderson hit 50 for christ sakes.
