The steroid thing doesn't worry me at all....I doubt he was using them in 04 and he still put up huge numbers. He's been under the media spotlight for a long time, so I don't really think that will affect his performance too much either. What concerns me is his age. Eventually his age is going to have to catch up to his bat speed and that's when we are going to see the mortal version of Barry Bonds. At his age that day has to be coming soon, I personally don't want to be the one who owns him when it does. Another concern at his advanced age is his health. He has been relatively healthy lately in his career, but if there were a freak accident or maybe even a strange steroid-related sickness/injury, his old body would be a lot slower to recover than would a young guy like Beltran. I'm not taking any chances with Bonds next year.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
