Default Why Roger Maris HR record should be true record

MLB should make Roger Maris's record of 61 HR's in 1961 the true record for a single season.

Since Bonds, McGwire and Sosa were all steriod users , Roger's record should be the true record. How can Maris hitting 61 in 1961 not be touched in over 30+ years, then broken by 3 players who never even came close to 61 without the juice


so from 1961 MLB should look at all the great players and HOF'ers who never even got close to 61

Time to make Roger the true record holder, funny how since they test now, nobody gets with 10+ of the record

and while they are at it, put Aaron back as all time HR leader

Good post Chris. I have to admit I bought into the whole excitement of those times and homers. Thinking back I was wrong.

Even without the taint of steroids, there is no way to accurately measure and compare players and teams from different eras. This is true not only in baseball, but football, basketball and hockey. Most all-time records meaningless with exceptions. Super Joe's 56 game hitting streak is ageless, and will probably never be broken...

Yup, agree Dell.

If someone get to 20-25 now they get nothing to hit anyway.

Should any modern baseball records count? I mean for the past 20 years at absolute minimum at least 50% of players have done at least one steroid cycle during their careers...how many home runs were "taken away" by juicing pitchers?
