Do you think that the Steroid Era of baseball has ended? There aren't nearly as many home runs as there were 1989-2007, and the sport is now more defense-oriented.

Hard to say. Recent rule changes that favored defense and the amphetamine ban were more strongly associated with declines in home runs, or so I've heard. They were also up a good bit last year,
but like they say, it's not immediately clear why that was or if it was just a blip.[/URL]

Man. Now I'll never beat teams 60-0 in baseball video games...
Or I can, but I'll have to try now.

Absolutely not. Be it hubris or new methods of juicing, players desperate enough for that edge will find a way.

Yeah, people are definitely still juicing in baseball. It's gone down since the days of Sosa, McGwire, Bonds, etc. most likely but it's still there and it will never go away.
and that's the waaaaaaaaaay the news goes
