Captain America may never have been allowed to join The Avengers had it been left up to members of the Baseball Writers' Association Of America. Despite incredible accomplishments during his peak hero years that included fighting the Axis Powers and the Red Skull, voters may not have been able to look beyond the impact that performance-enhancing drugs had on his career. After all, young Steve Rogers was, by all scouting reports, a weakling before receiving that special serum from Dr. Abraham Erskine that turned him into America's super soldier.
This unlikely yet compelling "Captain America vs The BBWAA" storyline is the type thing one can find him or herself fixated on after a brief exposure to the Twitter timeline of Jose Canseco. The former steroid-abusing slugger turned social media misfit, railed against the BBWAA on Thursday morning for not electing Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and other steroid-tainted superstars to the National Baseball Hall Of Fame. One year after the BBWAA shut out all 37 candidates on the ballot, three players were called to Cooperstown on Wednesday as part of the Class of 2014: Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas.
Who are the idiots voting on the hall of fame.what a scam.players who have the stats dont make it and some that used PEDs make it.lol
Hall of fame voting hypocrisy at its best .let all ped users in or not at all.
In perhaps his most inflammatory tweet on the Hall of Fame voting, Canseco claimed MLB is already aware of PED users enshrined in Cooperstown.
There are already players in the hall of fame that used peds and Mlb knows who they are.
After opening his Twitter rant with common complaints about the voting process and results, Canseco's own universe began a brief comic crossover with the Marvel Universe (that also included one Superman mention).
The theory of captain america being created on PEDs and being thought of as a heroe shows how incredibly hypocritical Mlb is.
Mark. Bonds. Rafael. Sammy.Clemens.Juan Gonzalez.not in the hall of fame are you kiddiing
How is captain america in the comic book hall of fame right next to superman.lol
Why did they name the only super hero created on PEDs captain America. Hmmmmmmm
