If it isn't steroids what is it??

Postby rib217 » Tue Sep 19, 2006 3:37 pm

I of course have my opinions on the steroid issue; Barry Bonds, McGwire, Sosa, the whole lot of em. However occasionally you hear or read the post that so and so didnt use steroids or its not proven or whatever they say. You know the posts.

If it isnt or wasnt steroids, then what was it. Why had no one gotten near the Homerun record and then in a relatively short period we saw it beat, beat again, and shattered to pieces? And not by guys in their prime. What other explanations are there?

There must be some other explanation if you stand by the argument that it wasnt steroids. What is it?

having a personal chef, high protein diet and year round 7 day a week workouts as opposed to having a silver face on a plaque saying that he ate 3,000 hotdogs.

and having video tape files of every major league pitcher at the push of a button for an improvement in pitch detection helps too.

True, but all those things have been accessible to players for years, why the boost so fast and by so many players?

Wasn't the talk of andro a really big thing a few years ago? I thought they admitted to using it, but it's been awhile and I don't remember.

Expansion, hitter-friendly parks, juiced balls, better bats, smaller strike zones, etc, etc, etc...there are hundreds of possibilities.

i think most research has shown andro doesnt work. however, the last 10 years or so have seen a large increase in supplement use (the legal and effective stuff like creatine), nutrition, and weightlifting. these things may have been available for years but they didnt really become popular until the 90's. many of the ball players of the 70's and 80's said they hardly ever spent time in a weight room. there are some smaller parks, potentially watered down pitching due to expansion and possibly juiced balls. maybe not everyone can agree on who took roids, but i think we can all agree a sizable amount of players took roids. beyond that though, i think people are hitting more home runs because they are trying to hit more home runs. chicks dig the long ball, bigger contracts for 30+ homers, etc. people are hitting the weights and watching tape because they want to hit more homers.
