Tell me something I didn't already know, Mark McGwire's estranged, born-again and presumably cash-poor younger brother.

:lol:

If McGwire already admitted to andro, why is it so hard for his fans to believe he was on something harder?

I was a fan of his since I was a kid and figured he probably was on something, but why does anyone care? He never broke any rules of MLB during his career...so really it should be a non-issue what he did or didnt do...

Some people are too wrapped up in preserving the 'old' of baseball and not adapting to the modern times...

Im not saying I dont believe it. Could very well be. But to be ratted out by your own brother, for cash, under the false cover of Christian concern... The stench is brutal, Mark McGwires own transgressions almost mild by comparison.

Quoth the Fonz: Exactimundo.

It's not the veracity of Li'l Mac's claims I'm questioning — it's his motivation for divulging this info about half a decade after it would've been truly relevant.

I tend to agree. To take this point even further, one who claims that McGwire should be kept out of the HOF due to his steroid use had better take a good long look at HOFer Gaylord Perry, the original spit-baller, and tell us why Perry can be in but Big Mac should not.

Lets face it. Contemporary baseball is wrapped in hypocritical, empty gestures... and spitting on a baseball is not a health issue. So McGwire is the devil while Perry becomes the lovable scoundrel.

Greenies and bennies go in too. Does that mean you kick out Pops, Mays, Joe Morgan and other HOF'ers who took speed?
