Bonds and Steroids - WOW

I still think Bonds has done some illegal drugs, but he is on my keeper team so I still hope he puts up his healthy monster numbers. He has enough stuff to deal with not to have to be distracted with this.

Maybe I should bump him down my rankings a bit.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Basic physics? Steroids aid in building muscle mass. More muscle with the same weight of bat means you can swing at a great acceleration. AKA, more force. The ball weighs the same, but you put more force into it. More force on a constant mass=faster acceleration, a faster acceleration means a faster velocity, and a faster velocity equals further distance traveled.

As for hand-eye coordination, in the book, they have from various seized federal records that Bonds noted an improvement in his eyesight after taking HGH.

So this is why Juan Pierre doesn't hit lots of homers?!?!?!?! aw gosh its all so clear now! i don't know what i was thinking! ;-7 ;-)

Obviously there are other factors, but thats far more complicated and didn't feel it was necessary. Obviously, you have to have the right pitchs to hit and also have to change your swing to hit home runs and such.

dude, sarcasm in response to yoda ;-D

Yawn... When I see something with any sort of validity maybe I'll listen. This is just a couple of tabloid writers trying to sell books.

Note: It has been my stance forever that Bonds has not been proven of taking steroids. I have never said, "Bonds never used steroids", because I haven't been around him his entire life.

When I see some actual, concrete proof, I'll then say he used steroids. Until then, I see no facts to prove that.

Yawn, another apologist who doesn't have a clue what he/she is talking about. They go into great detail in the book listing all their sources and where all their information is from. It's all legit, and its time to face the facts.


Oh, so you've read the book?

Thanks CubsFan, I love being bashed and called an apologist simply because I like looking at things objectively rather than through the eyes of the media that feeds me. ;D

I hear he has a cocaine habit, creating his superhuman strength in which he uses to hit homeruns. ;-7

I wouldn't.
