Wow that is viciously written. What a fair tale
This part is easily exposable:
According to the book, Bonds, in comments to his mistress, Kimberly Bell, often dismissed McGwire with racially-charged remarks such as, "They're just letting him do it because he's a white boy." But Bonds looked at McGwire and his hulking physique and decided he needed to dramatically increase his muscle mass to compete with him.
Wasn't Sammy Sosa competing too? Bonds would only make that comment if Mac were there only one. If I remember correctly, Sosa hit 60 first, it was a pretty even race. And don't say it's not understandable that player with the best AB:HR ratio ever ended up with the most.
Theirs was a volatile relationship. Bell retained answering machine recordings of him after he threatened to kill her, remarking that if she disappeared no one would be able to prove he even knew her.
You can't make that claim without playing the tape. Wow these guys are going for deep wounds.
