Shirley Povich spotted the cheaters in his last column. He knew that McGwire and Sosa were cheating, and he mentioned the "protein" shakes they were drinking. Maris is the single-season homer champ. Judge might beat Maris. He has already matched Ruth's second best, and surpassed Jimmie Fox in 1932 and Hank Greenberg in 1938.

Shirley's last column was just amazing.  The Post probably still has that in a searchable archive.  I've posted it before here but more than a decade ago probably.
