Mark McGwire

IMG_3530[1]Is Mark McGwire a hall of famer? In my opinion no. My standards for cheating are a little different though. Is Barry Bonds a hall of famer? Yes, and here is why. Barry Bonds was a hall of fame-caliber player before he obviously took steroids. Bonds had a high batting average, produced home runs and runs batted in, and stole 30 bases. Those are hall of fame statistics. Mark McGwire had a low batting average, he did hit home runs and had a lot of run batted in, but he only had 4 stolen bases. McGwire in his first 5 years batted .253. That should say it all.
