When faced with a tough decision following MLB's celebration of the steroid-laden feats of Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire in 1998, Bonds made the wrong one. That reality cannot be ignored or changed, but it also should not be overstated. At a time when cheating was rampant and all but encouraged, Bonds cheated too.

The latest Alex Rodriguez suspension is one of those events that at first glance appears to be poisonous, making everybody associated with it -- Rodgriguez, MLB and the New York Yankees -- look bad. That may be an accurate first take, but there are also clear winners and losers here.

The voting for the Hall of Fame is still hamstrung by a flawed electoral system, a backlog of good candidates and myriad steroid related problems, but the election of these three candidates is possibly a step in the right direction.

Fantasy Leaguers Can Save the Hall of Fame

From a fantasy perspective, it doesn't matter if a player was a steroids user or if he never merited serious consideration for Cooperstown. All that matters is whether his statistical performances helped his fantasy teams during his career.

The St. Louis Cardinals, after winning the NL pennant, have been reasonably active in the post-season. Perhaps their highest profile move was signing shortstop Jhonny Peralta, formerly of the Detroit Tigers, to a four year $52 million dollar contract.

David Ortiz, like many of the great players of his generation, has been linked to steroid use. Had Ortiz not been so good with the media, and such a likable player, the Hall of Fame discussion, and the discussion of his recent World Series performance, would be very different right now.

Although A-Rod faces the loss of enormous amounts of money, whatever is left of his reputation and his livelihood, this story is only somewhat about him. It is also a reminder of what a complete, and neverending mess MLB, led Bud Selig, has made of the steroids issue.
