    Is baseball destroyed by Steroids forever?

    I like to talk about how it was before Steroids.

    Regrettably, baseball fans seem to have largely gotten over steroids.
       
        That's a shame, because the keepers of the sport won't have an incentive to provide a clean sport unless we the fans give them a monetary reason to do so.

         Baseball has other bigger issues, like incompetent leadership at the top, and declining interest by america's youth.

    I really don't think that baseball is ruined forever by steroids, but it will always have an impact when the sport comes up in discussion. For on thing records are being broken because of athletic supplements such as steroids and Human Growth Hormones. It is not fair to those guys who are playing the game fairly. And I do agree with pendell2 on how a lot of fans have gotten over the fact that many baseball players used or are still using steroids, but the steroid era will never be forgotten.

    Steroids certainly has given baseball a black-eye but it hasn't destroyed the game forever.  In fact, individual player records and Hall Of  Fame selections have, and will continue to suffer considerably more that the game of baseball - from both a team and league perspective.
    The best thing the MLB can do to revive it's integrity regarding steroids is to have the league front office and MLB Players Association agree to more stringent and random Steroid, Drug and Human Growth Hormone (HGH) testing (when a reliable HGH test available).  With this transparency, fans will give back the respect to the individual statistics, and once again make baseball players true role models for our children.

    FYI, many baseball fans don't realize that before steroids, amphetamine use in MLB was widespread.  But in those days, there was less reporting and more cover-up by the league.

    No. Steroids did ruin the past decade and a half for many fans who loved watching the balls fly out of the ballpark. But we're all just going to have to forget about those such as Jose Canseco and move on to the great, young, clean players of today's game such as Joe Mauer and Dustin Pedroia. Baseball will be completely restored once the last of the Steroid era are out of the game.
