Jeff Bagwell Wishes to Defend Himself

Jeff Bagwell had a pretty good career.  A guy who hit 449 home runs over 15 years with the Astros, Bagwell won the Rookie of the Year in 1991, and an MVP in 1994.  He's a career .297 hitter, and his name has often been linked with PED's, though there's never been anything more than innuendo about it.

He spoke with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick recently and continues to be defiant.

I'm not sure Bagwell's got true Hall of Fame credentials anyway, so I'm not sure this is worth getting worked up about.  Don't get me wrong, I have high regard for Bagwell.  I'm just not sure he's elite.  That's a Hall of Famer in my eyes.
