Quote of the Day: Tom Haudricourt

Jan 12, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

I haven’t voted for him because he wouldn’t come forward and say
anything, but now that he did and admitted he cheated, I probably still
won’t vote for him.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Tom Haudricourt, approaching the sublime.

    If we suspect you of being a ‘roider, we’ll tie you up, weight you down with stones, and throw you to the bottom of the river so you’ll drown. If, however, you float, that proves you’re a ‘roider so we’ll have to burn you at the stake. This is how justice is served.

    What else floats in water?

    I think Craig might have to post this as the new comment of the day. Nothing describes the McGwire situation better.

    Aww shucks…

    I think that means you’re not getting enough fiber.

    He took Steroids because of injuries and he wanted to play, his numbers went up and he should be considered for the Hall of Fame, maybe the Hall of Shame.

    Oh, this one is pretty good, too:
    Wilstein — milking the story to keep alive his own minor role in it (he was the one who spotted the bottle of andro in McGwire’s locker years ago) — says now that he’s confessed, McGwire should be “banned from baseball.” Wilstein doesn’t mention whether baseball should also ban Clemens, Bonds, Pettitte, Canseco, Brian Roberts, etc., for the same offense.
    His rationale? “If McGwire’s admissions can serve any good now, it would be to prompt other steroid users to come clean.”
    Um, yeah. They’d certainly be motivated to come forward once McGwire is banned for life.

    I think we should go back and ban everyone either linked to, or strongly suspected of steroid abuse. That pretty much covers everyone from the 1990’s on. Plus we can throw in any power hitter from the 1980’s and anyone with suspect statistics. The pre-1980 hitters we should ban would be Hank Aaron (biggest power numbers at the end of his career), certainly Roger Maris (career high in HRs in 1961 by 22, never hit more than 33 after that), George Foster (52 and then 40 in 1977-1978, only one other season with 30), Jim Rice (4 years with big power numbers, otherwise just average) and Willie Stargell (two years with 48 and 44, otherwise his high was 33 and was usually in the mid to high 20’s).
    So that leaves Ruth with the all-time and single season HR records, followed by Mays, Robinson, Killebrew and either Jackson (fluky HR seasons probably indicates steroid use) or Mike Schmidt.

    The Hall of Fame is a joke, primarily because of the bozos who vote in the election.

    Very small rocks?
