Jeff Conine wants Hall of Fame to be clean
Yeah, but what does Jeff Conine know? He's just a guy who was a major leaguer for 17 years in the heart of the Steroid Era.
And if he'd "said something" when he played, he would have been accused of being a sanctimonious moralizer who broke the clubhouse code and accused his betters without evidence because of his unyielding jealousy.
You guys are so predictable, and so clueless.
Always wondered why all the non-users didn't band together as a political voice in the union to demand drug testing.
That's ironic. Conine always looked like a user to me.
Frank Thomas hasn't named any names, so he hasn't really told us anything other than the fact that MLBers roided, which everyone other than the clueless or wilfully blind already knew.
It's beyond bizarre that you would criticize a non-user who didn't rat out users more than the users themselves.
“I think all the guys of my era and my playing time would probably agree, that if you didn’t do anything, you don’t see why guys who did should get into the Hall of Fame,” Conine said.
The analogy's off. The i-banking Conine equivalent would be a pre-crash Merrill or Bear manager saying, "I don't think Jimmy Cayne or Stan O'Neil should be inducted into the Finance Hall of Fame." I see nothing wrong with that, and certainly nothing "hypocritical."
Not wanting steroid users in the HOF and being a former steroid user yourself do not need to be mutually exclusive. Maybe his opinion is based on first-hand knowledge on how much of an edge juicing can provide and he feels remorse over it.
