MLB 2022

I've been thinking about this the past couple days...

 

Judge is sitting on 55 with about 3 weeks left.

 

If he passes Maris, would you consider him the all time HR leader because of Bonds, Sosa, and McGwire's steroid use?

 

Would you test him before the season ends?

 

Just wondering

That is a great, interesting question.  And a question that should be on the table.  But, we shall have to wait 5-10 years to determine in retrospect..... in case PEDs, steroids, corked bats (major contributor), and juiced balls for a season or two after MLB strike seasons (bring back the fans - it really was a thing). 

 

But also, the parks are smaller, the batters are better, the technology (and scouting reports) are all better.  And some of the mid-relief pitching isn't as tough on hitters. It adds up, sure, but it shouldn't take away from the major stuff that was going on with PEDs/Bats/Juiced Balls. 

 

I feel right now - guys like Judge, Stanton and Pete Alonso are just big ol' boys who can rock the ball out of any park at any time (with the scouting reports on pitchers alone).

I guess the HR stats are still there, , it’s just the HOF voters are ignoring them as individual inductees.  Like Pete Rose- his all time hits record is in Cooperstown. He, as a person,  is not. 
 

And none of those guys won the triple crown- a very real possibility for Judge . Going to be a fun watch for the remaining 15 games. What a friggin year! And he will win the MVP
 

As far as testing- HELL NO. The other guys weren’t tested. They don’t take away past stats anyway. Just suspend  80 games for future games.
