6. Problem With That Reasoning, BC. . .

. . .is that if bat speed went up with juice, we don't know how much bat speed would have slowed without juicing.

Then the career last fewer years, with some bad trail off years at the end, and then we look at the numbers and might so "close, but no cigar." The juicing clouds the whole issue, so to just assume that he would have done enough in those last 7 years is too big a leap for me.

Definitely so with Clemens, who was still relying on power pitching way past 30. If no juicing and his stuff weakens and velocity goes down, does he get to 300 games?

Until we actually see the career in totality, i don't think an assumption like that can be fairly made.
