How many were hit because of steroid and HGH use?

He and Bonds are high on the list of career homers because they CHEATED!

Mays, Aaron, Ruth and Frank Robinson did it the right way and they have the satisfaction of knowing they did it on natural talent. A-Rod knows he cheated and doesn't deserve the accolades the others on that list are accorded. What an empty feeling A-Rod must have...there is no glory or satisfaction or even a feeling of accomplishment in reaching a goal if you cheated to get there.

This man is a cheater and they should not be celebrating this milestone. He is not a hero but a shame. Oh yeah Steve what about Griffey!! You failed to mention the greatest natural longball hitter of my generation.

Not mentioning Griffey was an oversight...I wasn't trying to be all inclusive, just make a point.
You might notice I didn't mention Mantle, Greenberg, Williams or Gehrig or 30 other guys who did it the right way either.
