With the most recent “revelation” that Manny Ramirez juiced and with Barry Bonds having essentially admitted to using steroids (albeit “unknowingly”), the past twenty years of offensive baseball history should be reevaluated. I suggest that in retrospect, the lil’ guys should get shown some love: Ichiro Suzuki, for example, is one of the best to ever do it in any era. Let’s just look at Ichiro’s numbers:
~2,250 hits in 10 seasons. 7x MLB hits leader. 2x MLB Batting Champion (best batting average). Single-season record for 262 hits in ‘06. 10x All-Star.
Ichiro doesn’t cheat. He’s just widely gifted and works incredibly hard. And he’s humble. That’s swag.
