These things didn't even exist when those guys played, and now some cheater is going to come along and take his unrightful place beside them? It's just not right.

Even though I disagree with you, I can understand where you come from and I respect your opinion. But this is the part of the argument that I have serious problems with. There are hundreds of things that today's players have that weren't available in past generations. The equipment is better, the nutrition and training is better, treatment and recovery for injuries is better. They didn't have arthroscopic surgery and many injuries that keep players out for two months now were career ending 50 years should we strip their stats too? Also, where do you draw the line? Steroids and creatine do the same thing (artificial muscle growth), only to different degrees, so who, and how do we decide which supplements are legal and which aren't?

Think about what you just said. They don't prove he didn't take human growth hormone. They don't prove he didn't take horse steroids with an advanced masking agent. Think about it. They prove nothing.

If they prove nothing then how come we have to many positive tests?

In the court of public opinion they haven't proven he did nothing in the past, only that he hasn't gotten caught. The tests don't cover the past few years and that's a pretty important thing to remember in the eyes of the public.

Heh, and you don't think there are so many hardcore masking agents?

Yahoo's Poll:

"Poll: What do you expect from Bonds' return?

A. Drama B. Walks C. an 0-fer"

Seems as though Yahoo doesn't think too highly of him either.
