In an interview with WFAN’s Richard Neer Newsday’s Ken Davidoff shares his thoughts on all this HGH talk. In it he shares a unique perspective not often heard from the media where he is tries to explain how Barry Bonds steroid era 73 homers of 2001 are just as legitimate to the Babe’s 60 homers in 1927 due to the fact that Ruth didn’t face African American, Latino, and Japanese players because of Baseball’s policies at the time.
Neer in hearing this replied by saying “but that was rectified eventually I mean maybe it was 30 years later” to which Davidoff responded with “Take the emotion out of it take the emotion out of it. Statistically those 60 home runs are just as illegitimate as Barry Bonds 70 home runs, or I should say they are just as legitimate. Because you have to view everything through it’s context.”
