Since he hasn't seen the light of day in an MLB uniform since 2008, this is sort of a formality, but he sure had a dominant (albeit, likely steroid-aided) run earlier this decade.

His run from 2002-2004 with the Dodgers is absolutely mind blowing.

The needle in his ass retired five years ago.

He barely deserves consideration for the hall of pretty good.

Can any serious baseball fan answer anything but option 3? Eric Gagne? Hall of Fame? Can we also have a poll about, say, Dante Bichette?

We letting in Bobby Thigpen too?

Heck, he may have a better case since he did it sans "help".

He was useless when he was not juicing.

I think he could be used as example #1 for those guys like McGwire who contend that steroids don't really help you play baseball.

I should clarify that I misread the poll questions. I don't think he would be a lock if he were clean, but he would have definately would have deserved consideration.
