Vitale sez: McGwire and Canseco should take lie-detector tests (WITH POLL)

Dickie V, in his espn.com column, opines that both Mac and Josey should take lie-detector tests live on ESPN to settle Canseco's claims about steroid use:

To end this soap opera, let's invite Canseco, McGwire and the players implicated to take a lie-detector test. Administer the test on "SportsCenter" and have a professional give the test and then air the results.

Here is more of Vitale's take on this.  By the way, Dickie V really is a big baseball fan, he's a Devil Rays season ticket holder.

This story breaks my heart. I think back to the great moments of 1998, when Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa were battling for the home-run title and vying for Roger Maris' record. America's love affair with baseball and the crowds in St. Louis were so special.

To think that could all be tainted now makes me sick. I hope and pray there is no validity to what Canseco is saying.

The locker room is a place of sanctity, and whatever happens between ballplayers is the business of those individuals. It's disappointing that a guy has an agenda to make money off his former teammates with a book.

I believe some things that have been said are accurate, but I wonder about other statements. We don't know exactly what happened and how much of it is true and how much is made up to sell copies of the book. I feel that some of the details give Canseco some validity. Some statements, though, are dramatically drawn out to sell books.

Pretty dam funny.  Heck, if they ever do get the Bash Brothers hooked up to a lie detector machine, forget SportsCenter and show it live on pay-per-view.

Take the poll.
