i don't think bagwell's name ever showed up in reports... it's odd that many of us will probably say bagwell roided up.

How come we never have these speculation witch hunts when it comes to pitchers accomplishments?

Someone like Thome would be a shock if he was a juicer. From his time in Philly, he always seemed to be a hard worker, and a good guy. I have a lot of respect for him, and loved him from his time here. I'm definitely glad he's into the 600 club. Great way to cap off a long career. Here's to having the privilege of watching a consummate professional and future HoFer play. ;-D

I say in all likelihood JR used PED's to try getting on the field during those injury filled years

He was def clean during his prime im sure

That's when he was 19 years old and no where near grown into his body. That has nothing to do with him gaining weight by the time he's 40.

Speaking of jokes, I also think it's a joke he just gets a mention on sports center when it happens with a soundbite and when Jeter gets 3,000 hits which isn't even as big an accomplishment he gets an HBO documentry made on him following him for weeks leading up to 3,000 :-°

come on now... posting a picture of a kid who could still be in HS and then insinuating he was on roids because his body is different after 20 years of being a professional athlete is a little unfair
