Wait until they renege on A-Roids contract, they will be the the biggest benefactors of PED's ever.
The "class" is tainted.
is this reasonable to say?"
No its not. Every think that maybe their players were just better? Hasnt it been proven that MANY MANY players have used steroids? Why did you only hear about maybe, 5% of the names on the Mitchel report? Because only 5% of those names sell papers and cause scandals. Many have cheated yet few have succeeded. Why? Is it possible that steroids dont have the effect that you're taught to believe they do? Roger Marris hit 61 Home runs in 1961. He hit 33, almost HALF of that in 1962. Why? Why did he hit twice as many n 61 as he did in 62? Where is the investigation? Look, I hate the Yankees as much as any NY Mets fan but lets be reasonable. Steroids didnt help them. Talent did. Arod was on them last year. Why was he so horrible? We ignore that year and go straight back to 2009. People believe whatever their told
A-Roid is obscenely talented, but he went into the stratosphere after taking something.
Caminiti echoed the same thoughts- These aren't reporters or fans stating it makes a huge difference, these are players. So not only do we have inflated statistics as proof, we have their own anecdotal evidence as well.

I disagree that we have inflated statistics. Like I said. Explain Why Marris hit 61 in 61 and 33 in 62? Now... Mark McGuire hit 49 home runs in his rookie year. He could hoola hoop through a cheerio during his rookie season. Reporters arent telling you about EVERYONE who is taking them? Why? Could it be that 95% of the players on them are NO ONE you care about? And you dont care about them because they havent done a thing to make you care about them? Why isnt anyone talking about the scuffed ball? No matter how strong you are, if the ball is unaturally unhittable, what good are steroids? Where is the outrage over Gaylord Perry. There is actually NO proof that anyones stats are inflated due to steroids, just SOME players who were linked to them having great stats. Why was A Rod so horrible last year? He was on them then too
Read this. Catalonotto might be ore qualified than both of us on the subject but he echoed everything I ever said about it
Because now he's broken, old, and tired. He isn't the same player he once was.
To completely ignore the era's inflated stats seems strange to me, because there is such a huge increase in power during that time... Completely out of line with the average the sport has had in the past. Yes, players are more athletic today then ever. Yes, they train smarter. Yes, they're very talented.
But when you see what we've seen, and heard what we've heard (again, from players), it's hard to look the other way.

No thats your opinion. Are you a doctor? You actually have no idea why he had a horrible year. You also ignored every question and point I made. Sorry but if read Catalonottos article, Im he completly destroys whatever argument you made. Im gonna go with him on this. He provides more than just an opinion. He asks questions and brings up examples
'Are you a doctor?'
... You would be surprised.
And there are plenty of examples that show inflated statistics when a player is on something, or how some of these guys can play well into their 40's when in the past that was unheard of. Medically speaking, there is undeniable evidence proving the enhancements that steroids can provide.
"A-Roid is obscenely talented, but he went into the stratosphere after taking something."
He was in the stratosphere since age 20 - so you're basically saying he took them his whole career.
