John Delcos is advocating use of the asterisk for players linked to steroids. Though I believe baseball should be doing more to remove the cheaters from the game I’m also smart enough to realize that it never will because it’s not in their best interest. (A government approved independent third party really should be handling the program.) In light of this I have to agree with Delcos. If they’re not going to throw these players out then at least add a notation that draws a distinction between their records and that of the previous record holders. Roger Maris’s only sin was playing in an era when the regular season consisted of more games than in Babe Ruth’s time. If Maris got the asterisk then players who are linked to steroids certainly should as well.
