Steroid User Ties Gehrig's Mark

Last night, Alex Rodriguez became the first admitted steroid user to hit 23 grand slams in his Major League career.  Lou Gehrig remains the only Major League player to hit that many grand slams without the advantage of chemical enhancement.

Perhaps we will one day speak of those passed over for Hall of Fame consideration in spite of gaudy statistics and because of known steroid usage as having Alex Rodriguez' disease.  That is, unless the honor should pass to Barry Bonds or Mark McGuire instead.  One hopes for their sake that it is only their reputations that have been damaged by such usage.
