Comments like this really rustle my jimmies.
If this attitude was consistent through baseball, half of the record books would be empty.
In an environment where PED useable was so common, I think it's pretty unfair to just write a player off. PED's obviously give you a greater chance to be a better player, but it doesn't turn everyone into a superstar. The initial talent still has to be there.
Steroid testing in baseball didn't begin till 2004, so anything done before that shouldn't be deemed as "cheating".
