:Big Mac won't get a taste of Hall of Fame
It was an interesting decision by McGwire, who could have chosen to lie, as then-Oriole Rafael Palmeiro apparently did. By saying he didn't want to talk about the past, McGwire all but admitted to using steroids.
And now he stands before us looking for entrance into the most prestigious hall of fame in sports.
I don't think so.
I think Cardinals shortstop David Eckstein, who might be 5 feet 7 inches, 165 pounds after a week-long Pizza Hut jag, is more deserving of a Cooperstown bust than McGwire is.
Just amen, brother. Amen.
