Jerry Juicer

Jerry Hairston Jr, son of baseball great Jerry Hairston, and current Texas Ranger is the latest to fall into the quagmire of steroid allegations emanating from the raided Orlando pharmacy. Looking at Hairston's career stats, it is easy to see why investigators were suspicious about the use of growth hormone. There is that extremely fishy three year period in which he hit five, eight, five home runs in successive years despite never once in his career previously breaking the four home run plateau. Hairston should be immediately banned from the game, have all of his records stricken from the books, and be removed from the Hall of Fame ballots.
