NY Times: Steroid Cloud Stops McGwire From Entering Hall

Shaughnessy: Strong Message Sent to McGwire

"Jose Canseco admitted his transgressions when he sat before Congress. Rafael Palmeiro lied to us. Sammy Sosa hid behind the language barrier. Barry Bonds never was called to testify because of a case already pending. But McGwire sat there, all lawyered up, looking about 80 pounds smaller than in the days when he was hitting those tape-measure shots. He kept saying, 'I'm not here to talk about the past.' And we've heard nothing from him since that day.

"It was universally viewed as a confession. It eliminated any chance of a perjury charge (something Bonds yet may face), but it cost McGwire his reputation. Yesterday it cost him Cooperstown." -- 1.10.07, Dan Shaughnessy, Boston Globe
