this is what they never understand, They keep getting it wrong .. Barry put on his bulk, two years before BALCO. After the 98 season. Not 2001.

Two lines from of an anynoumous source, and then a history rehash is the firts sign of poor reporting.


Well.......Bernard did go from 3 HR in 1998 to 16 in 1999. Then, he followed that up with 2 more double-digit HR seasons. Coincidence?? I do think so. :-D

"In addition, Bonds was said to have received human growth hormone, a powerful substance that legally cannot be distributed without a prescription, investigators were told."

Human growth hormones are sold in health food stores. That statment is false.

There are different kinds of HGH, some are pretty much useless and can be bought over the counter. Some are HIGHLY potent and require a prescription.

Yes, there is no reported source, but WR, you have to admit the evidence is mounting. At what point will you give up your stance? When Bonds admits it? When the authorities come out and corroborate the evidence? Sure, it's very circumstantial now and won't hold up in court, but it's building...

OK so exactly how much more evidence is it going to take for people to belive that Bonds was//is on steroids, oh wait and HGH. Makes you wonder what else these guys are on. I would definately put an asterisk next to that *73.




*He CHEATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As i said in my other posts, you have to be BLIND not to at least suspect of the players of this generation. Its getting worst by the moment.

Well, I completely understand the belief that they are innocent until proven guilty... but it is rather naive to think that these guys have no involvement whatsoever.

This very well could be someone leaking bad information to the press; or, it could be a credible source. The SF Chronicle isn't the New York Post--it's quite reliable.

Add this to the other circumstantial evidence and it's getting hard to think of reasons or excuses why these players weren't on steroids.

I'd love to hear about Giambi's diet.

By the way, even if they can't prove that they took the steroids--just that they bought them, as the article implies--then this is still a very bad development for baseball. That's posession of a banned substance and the government could charge these players.
