Essentially that is what I'm saying.
The records of those hitting it out of the park while *Juicing it* should not.
As far as I know Maris or Mantle never juiced it, well Mantle maybe booze, but that is not a performance enhancer :)
For those who defend the "juicers" of the 90's, I always wonder just what Mantle or for that matter Babe Ruth COULD have done, had they not drank and partied so much.
I'd lay money down that Mantle would have broken the Babe's HR record had he stayed "clean".
For baseball historians, they always comment that Mantle was ungodly with his power. And looking at the distances he hit, he came pretty close to the Bambino.
Alas, alcoholism and a bum knee, and we'll never know.
Then again, the Babe hit in parks that had 500 ft. fences, so maybe he would have approached 1000 HRs in the modern era.
