James says Cooperstown should expect steroid players


A compelling article has been penned by Boston Red Sox Senior Baseball Operations Advisor Bill James about why he believes yesterday’s steroids users and accused users, including Mark McGwire, will eventually be enshrined in Baseball’s Hall of Fame.

I began to read the four-page article with a healthy dose of skepticism. “So what if a stats guru had finally decided to break his silence about the steroid era? What possibly could he say that is new?” I thought to myself. By the end, James’ practical arguments had me in agreement.

Rather than recap it, lest I leave out important supporting points, I offer the link for you to read it in its entirety.
