    There's definitely still players using, and let's face it, players will forever continue to use them.

    Fans should just accept it, and move on.

    Right, but not productive enough that shows me PED's had any effect, if he was using anything.

    It seems to me, if Arod was using, it was to get back onto the field. This isn't like Barry Bonds...

    I don't know if the reports are true or not, but whatever Arod may have been using must have been some weak stuff. Arod's performance from 2009-2012 has overall been pretty damn mediocre.

    Look at Bagwell's case.

    Don't be so sure.

    Bagwell didn't get in, in his first two years.

    Obviously suspicion is enough for some writers to vote no.
  7. Poll: Which one of these suspected steroid users will get in the HOF next year?

    I realize that there is absolutely no evidence that Piazza or Bagwell juiced, however many people suspect them for whatever reason.

    Mays wins because of league quality, not to mention he lost nearly two years serving his country.

    Pre 1999 Barry Bonds>Albert Pujols

    As a hitter, and as an overall player.

    Bond had back to back 200 OPS+ seasons (204 and 206), while Pujols career high is 191.

    Say what you will about...

    I'm curious to hear the argument that Walker/Votto> Arod as hitters.

    I'm not even sure if Votto should rank ahead of Cabrera.

    From last year to this year when the formula was changed.

    Okay, I shouldn't lump everyone in together, I'll admit that.

    No, it's about WAR.

    If WAR didn't exist, we wouldn't hear about this "injustice" in every other thread, and you know it.

    Win shares has Trout at 37, Cabrera at 32. So again, Trout wins, though it hardly shows the massive gap that WAR has.

    Regardless, Trout's season is ridiculously amazing for a rookie.

    Maybe, maybe not. He may rise for all we know. And again, I never said Cabrera deserved the MVP over Trout.

    And I never argued other wise.

    But there's no doubt that the massive support for Trout over Cabrera is strictly due to WAR.

    The funny thing about Trout's WAR is that once Baseballreference.com tinkers with the formula again, Trout's WAR can drop drastically. Kemp last year had a WAR over 10.0, and now it's 7.8.

    Which can either be beneficial or hurtful to Griffey's WAR. Guess we'll never know.




    Just curious as to why.

    War from Fangraphs paints a different picture than baseballreference. WAR from Fangraphs has Griffey's best season beating Trout's.

    Either that, or players aren't abusing them like they did back then because it would be too obvious now.

    Kevin Brown was on the mitchell report, and never denied the allegations. He definitely was using steroids.

    Still an underrated pitcher though.
