Did doctoring a ball make you throw harder ?
Did using an emery board put you in fits of rage where you could hurt someone ?
Did putting pine tar too far up the bat give you a good possibility of getting cancer ?
Did "loading" a bat make your hat size go up ?
Did stealing signs make you impotent ?
You're seriously going to put these in the same level as steroids ?
You avoided answering the question. Good job! To answer your questions:
Did sharpening spikes threaten the lives of other baseball players leading to the gaining of extra bases that would not have otherwise been had? Yes.
Did doctoring a ball create a lot more movement thus leading to extra strikeouts, a better ERA, and more wins? Yes.
Did using an emery board create a lot more movement thus leading to extra strikeouts, a better ERA, and more wins? Yes.
Did putting pine tar too far up the bat make it easier to hit home runs? Yes.
Did "loading" a bat make it easier to hit more home runs? Yes.
The questions you asked are borderline retarded. Each of the things you mentioned are cheating and directly lead to better numbers which, as you said earlier, are all that should matter for the Hall.
Would I say that raping someone and murdering someone is the same thing? No, but both of them are pretty ed up. Just because doctoring a baseball doesn't have THE EXACT SAME EFFECTS AS STEROIDS doesn't mean that it's magically not cheating and that it doesn't do anything to very unfairly change a player's stats.
