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.

I don't know who's on the Juice right now - but I bet that she's tall and blonde.

hahahha.......LOL!! That's funny!

Seriously though, Brett Boone is a guy that, while I like him, stands out as kind of a journeyman 2B until suddenly, in his mid thirties, he starts in on a sudden power surge..... Kind of curious, wouldn't you say....?

I agree Boone for sure. Whenever you hear that a guy, "adds 30 pounds of muscle over the offseason" it means they had some help.
I know the future!!!!!!!

The reason why people jump to that conclusion is because many, like Bonds, blew up in their mid to late thirties. That just doesn’t happen often. It’s not impossible, but it is highly improbable.

I have been all over Bonds on this issue in past threads. So, I won’t pile it on here. This issue is very very disappointing for any fan of the game. The only consolation is that everyone is coming to the realization that this is a serious and widespread problem. Let’s pray MLB stands up and finally does something. Denial has been as much to blame as the players themselves.
