    I agree about Sheff. The $400K we signed him for has pretty much been entirely justified already. Talk about a very low risk, somewhat high reward contract, and I think he’s been delivering more than I was expecting.

    I’m mixed on the issue of roiders in the Hall. One of the guys that really makes me struggle with it is Bonds. Watching him play as I grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, what I saw was a first ballot Hall of Famer. During the part of his career he was one of the greatest and most complete ballplayers of our generation. He hit for decent power (relative to that era), hit for average, got on base constantly, ran the bases well, was prolific at stealing, and played gold glove defense. I look at what he did pre-BALCO, and I still see a Hall of Fame baseball player. The problem is that he went on to juice himself up and gather together some ridiculous years. Inducting him is inducting everything he’s done, you can’t just let in part of that career. I hate cheating, but I think most of what he did in his career was worthy of our top honor.

    So yeah, I’m still torn on the Hall of Fame: Steroids Era issue. Glad I don’t get to vote, cause that’d lead to a lot of agony trying to make a decision.

    Thanks for the comments Jeff. Great point on Bonds. I guess the only thing I would say to your comments is “yes” I agree that Bonds probably had HOF numbers before he began using Steroids but at the same time he had a major part in tainting the game we all love and for that, in my opinion he shouldn’t receive baseballs highest honor.
