Baseballssteroidera.com was created and compiled solely by George Godfrey. It is a collection and summary of media reports about performance enhancing drugs in baseball.
For those writing papers about performance enhancing drug use in baseball, I highly recommend citing the original author of each article. BSE's main purpose is to regurgitate and contextualize media reports.
This site was created in July 2006 in an effort to better document an era that is sure to be analyzed for generations to come. At that time, it was clear that fans and analysts were attempting to reconcile the era both morally and statistically. The first step in that process is to gather as much information as possible.
The burden of proof has always been a significant and controversial part of this story. The same holds true for this site.
The goal of this site was to compile media reports and provide contextual tools (lists, timelines, etc.) to make a large portion of that information, as a whole, easier to digest. Hopefully, the information at this site is a good starting point.
With all due respect, BSE is not interested in link exchanges or advertising opportunities. I will not respond to any such inquiries.
