Bonds not the only one...

I started lifting 1 month ago and i gained 5 pounds...

It has been reported that Bonds works out 6 hours a day in the offseason. Bonds has said it, Bonds trainer, the GIants, gary Sheffield has said it, and it was also reported back in 1992. So bonds prob could be buff but he grew oh so much in 2000...

Even if Sosa and Bonds are taking roids', which I highly doubt they are, they are still two of the greatest hitters to ever play the game. Getting huge isn't going to all of a sudden make you the best hitter in baseball. If that were true, then Arnold would be battling out for the MVP, instead of becoming Governor.

if you give a body builder a bat, he can't go out and hit 73 homeruns... Bonds, Sosa and Giambi still have to hit the ball. Bonds was by far the best contact hitter last year. You dont hit for avg if you JUST TAKE ROIDS... Giambi can't hit worh beans.

don't get me wrong...they are fantastic athletes...but they get extra HR's. i think without roids, they would probably each have 15% less HR's. and that's being nice, IMO.

I will agree that it makes no sense to bother testing the guys if MLB is not going to enforce a punishment for breaking the rules.

Saying a guys on roids has no more value then me saying you are on roids. So a guys bigger now then when he was before 30. That proves nothing.

Sosa might be on the juice but if you look at his early pic. compared to his late pic. the arms, chest, and body are bigger but if you look at Barry his head has went up a few hat sizes. Is that normal???? 8-o I didn't know you could work out your head muscles. Any way something is going on there.
