Mark McGwire: Hitting Coach??

I wanted to share something that I saw in USA Today today (and something I wrote in my blog).  Did anyone see the feature article on Mark McGwire and the fact that he has been quietly helping hitters in various levels in baseball?  I have very mixed feelings about him.  I hate him for using andro and how he acted in the 2005 hearings in Congress.  I hate him for doing a lot of this for the Cardinals and against the Cubs.  But outside of this, should he be penalized harshly?  Does what he did rank as bad as Pete Rose and Shoeless Joe Jackson?  I'm just throwing this out to see what everyone thinks.  When I see NFL players able to come back from drug suspensions and be successful afterward (Shawne Merriman comes to mind), it made wonder a bit after I read this article.  Check it out at: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/baseball/2008-06-30-mcgwire_N.htm

I write this as I see the WGN poll question asking if Barry Bonds will ever play again?  Let's hope not...
