Federal prosecutors still care deeply about steroids, and lying about their use to Congress as the aborted Roger Clemens trial shows.

The shredded reputation of Clemens remains in limbo after last week’s mistrial in the perjury case against one of baseball’s all-time greats.

“I think there’s certainly some performance-enhancing drug fatigue,” said Charles Yesalis, a professor at Penn State and longtime outspoken critic of PED abuse.

Alex Rodriguez still has plans after the 600thThe seventh and youngest player in Major League Baseball history to hit 600 career home runs, Alex Rodriguez, is still under a lot of pressure to prove critics wrong who often find it amusing to link A-Rod with anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs.

It is believed by some that the 600th home run may just not be enough for A-Rod to gain an easy entry into the Hall of Fame once he becomes eligible five years after retirement.

People still doubt me and my performance because of what happened in the past, Rodriguez told Suzyn Waldman of WCBS Radio.

Andre Dawson says steroid era will make things toughAndre Dawson is about to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and think that writers will have their work cutout to se which they direction they would prefer going.

Dawson remarked that the steroid era has made things difficult for the writers and players from the 70′s and 80′s are being viewed differently by the voters in light of the steroid era.

Hall of Famer Paul Molitor said of A-Rod’s about-to-come 600th home run and PED admission in 2009 that Alex Rodriguez is a gifted player and his 600th home run will be quite an accomplishment despite allegations and admission of steroid use.

Mark McGwire adamant talking about steroids and A-RodMark McGwire, the Cardinals’ hitting coach, said in the visiting dugout at Citi Field that he has moved on from the steroid era and is no longer interested in answering questions related to steroids or from where he got them during his major league career spanning 16 seasons. McGwire also said that he would not be judging Alex Rodriguez in his quest for 600 home runs.

It is worth noting here that McGwire came clean about his long-time use of steroids during a televised interview with Bob Costas in January.

After McGwire came clean, he was welcomed back into the Cardinals’ fold in downtown St. Louis during a fan fest.

This finding was revealed by a study by Tufts University physicist Roger Tobin, a specialist in condensed matter physics with a long-time interest in the physics of baseball.

Tobin remarked that the home run explosion coincides with the dawn of the “steroid era” in sports in the mid-1990s and dropped significantly when Major League Baseball instituted steroid testing.
