BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-14 16:00:00 (link to chat)Stats and records have long been the backbone of baseball fandom. How can we reconcile that with the new age of "cheating" and potentially the whole record book being ambiguous? No cliched, "cheating in baseball has gone on forever" please. This stuff is different and will only progress. Sophisticated artificial body parts are a natural progression down the line.
(bobbailey from Canada)
I guess I come at this from a different angle. Mark McGwire* was anointed a cultural hero, and it turns out heís a cheat. Yes, this makes the record book ambiguous and messy, but no matter what, the numbers happened. My question is why is it only an outrage when a player in the record book or on the doorstep of the Hall of Fame cheats. There were a bunch of players named in the Mitchell Report and a good number of them were inconsequential. Whereís the outrage over the allegations about Glenallen Hill* or Ricky Bones*? The steroid controversy isnít about the players or the records themselves. Itís about the fact that our culture got caught with its pants down picking heroes by how many home runs he hit. And thatís a stupid way to pick heroes. (Russell A. Carleton)
