And if you take away ARod's 2009 post-season, the Yankees haven't won a championship in 12 years.
Edit: I missed "with the Yankees." My bad. It's correct.

They were already potential HOFers without the drugs - but they got greedy. They had to be the best and make the big bucks.
I think Jack Morris put it best: They had a choice between money and the HOF, and they chose the money.
Some may not fault them for going after a bigger payday - I'm sure many of us would consider it if the opportunity was there. But in doing so, they gave up there shot at "immortality" as HOF inductees.
And, even without playing a game, A-Roid manages to become involved in another PED scandal AND **** off the GM.
