I don't know if your being sarcastic, but 90% is RIDICULOUS. In every single sport, people have been getting bigger, and stronger.
Believe it or not, if you were to work out 2 hours everyday, alternating upper and lower body everyday, in 2-3 years, you'd be pretty damn BIG. Personally I don't know this b/c I'm just lazy, but my brother used creatine, while he worked out for 4-5 months, and he got HUGE. He stopped taking it b/c he got to the size he wanted, but, from personal experience, I saw how quickly someone could increase in size using non-steriod supplements.
Plus, the "biggest" guys aren't being brought up to the majors. The best guys are, and, no matter how strong you are, you need to be able to hit a major league fastball. That isn't accomplished by big muscles, but by natural talent, good eye-hand coordination, and a little bit of luck.
I'm sick and tired of people saying people are on steriods b/c they got bigger as they got older. I understand some people are probably on steriods, but I doubt its higher than 15%, with most of the 15% being role players, not superstars.
