Quote from Lou (complete with obligatory "Look"):
"Look, he's hit a lot of home runs. Put it this way: If the steroids (controversy) were not an issue, he would definitely be a first-round selection to the Hall of Fame. How the writers treat it ... I think my opinion means very little.
"Is he a Hall of Famer? I would probably think that down the road he will be a Hall of Famer. Maybe not in the first few ballots, but people tend to forget, and rightfully so."
