I'm considering putting the "25" in my sig too.


Do you have room in your sig with all the love you're giving to Prior? I wish he would just stay health and dominate like he could. But with the track record of cubs pitchers and injuries recently, I'm afraid for his arm, and legs.

Ok, I've read it all and no one from the Bonds side is really making much headway. It's tough to deal with people where their minds can't be changed. But here i go again.

First, Ruth used corked bats? Sure he did. Was it illegal to do so? I'm not for certain but I do believe the rule was made because Ruth did use corked bats which means they weren't illegal bats when he used them.

Now with regards to PAs over ABs. It was already proven that the PA/HR average went way up the Bonds supporters obviously don't think it went up high enough. So I'll throw this into the fold. With Bonds walking so much he's not swinging the bat as much. If he doesn't swing the bat he can't hit a homerun. So the AB/HR is much more telling. But in either case it still shows Bonds at the age of 35 dramatically increased his Homer rate.

Also, Every player takes amphetamines. There are ex players that say the inclusion of amphetamines in the testing is going to ruin baseball. It what keeps players going from game 120 to 162. Without them the play is really going to go down mid season.

Bud should look into the sources of this book (and i love the fact none of the Bonds supporters even try to say he didn't take steroids anymore.) and figure out what to do with Bonds BEFORE he breaks any records. It'll be pointless afterwards.
Barry Bonds for US president.

This reasoning is really bogus. According to some of the sources, almost every player was taking steroids in the 1990s, too. Everybody's doing it cuts both ways.
