His grand slam on Tuesday night tied him with Lou Gehrig for most all-time, with 23, but his is legacy tainted?Despite admitting that he did use performance enhancing drugs for a short period while playing in Texas, Alex Rodriguez will forever be linked to the steroid era. Whether he likes it or not, he is a player that is going to be closely associated with one of the darker periods in baseball history.

It’s now likely that he could pass Gehrig and stand alone as the all-time leader in grand slams. Will his accomplishment come with an asterisk next to it?
