    Aaron: If Steroid Era stars enter Hall, bring asterisks

    Aaron: If Steroid Era stars enter Hall, bring asterisks - MLB - CBSSports.com Baseball

    COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- He wasn't speaking for the entire class of the 50 or so living Hall of Famers who have flocked back to baseball's nirvana here this weekend.

    He wasn't speaking officially for the Hall, for baseball or for anybody else.

    He was just one man, speaking his mind.

    But because the man was Henry Aaron, former all-time home run leader and still viewed by many as the game's legitimate Home Run King, and because the topic was steroids, each word carried the weight of a cement truck.

    Especially as he called for asterisks to be affixed to the plaques of any steroid user who is voted into the Hall of Fame in future years.

    Good for Hammering Hank I support this and I would go one better none of those Piece of Crap would get into the Hall

    I support Aaron's position on this, personally I still considered Aaron to be the home run king.

    I don't think juicers should even be considered for the Hall of Fame.

    Cheaters do not belong in the HOF. Baseball is a game of rules and statistics. If you don't follow the former than the latter mean nothing.

    Right on. Hank's always been my baseball hero, and any respect I had for most modern stars faded with the steroid era. From McGwire, I went to respecting Sosa, but now it seems like Howard and Pujols are the only clean power monsters left.

    Mark McGuire hasn't been voted in. Barry Bonds will be a very interesting case.
