McGwire led the race most of the year, and through the middle of June Sammy wasn't even a factor. Remember it took Sosa's MLB record of 20 homers in one month to even bring him into contention. If memory serves prior to that point it was a "race" between Big Mac and KGJ.
About the time when Griffey dropped back is when Sosa had his "magical" charge, but he still trailed McGwire through July and August, so the focus on actually breaking the record was all on Mac. It wasn't until Sosa really came close to McGwire that focus switched between the two.
One question - did you read the article and the supporting articles published on CNNSI today? I don't possibly see how you could support Bonds regarding the Steroid question if you do.
