A lot of those who are responding to the Mark McGwire/Hall of Fame vote contend that McGwire had yet to be found guilty of using banned substances (remember, Andro was not illegal when McGwire admitted using the over-the-counter substance).
Still, none of this convinces me that McGwire went through the steroid era cleanly, mostly because he still refuses to adamantly say that he did!
Big Mac has yet to deny Jose Canseco’s claim that they shot each other up with steroids during their Bash Brother days.
Why not call him a liar, or sue for libel to clear his name?
I know I would – if I knew I was clean and there couldn’t possibly be a smoking gun. I’m still waiting for Mac to come to his own defense.
Thus far, his silence continues to speak volumes.
