Bonds is the games ultimate JACKASS to make comments like that. He never was, nor will he ever be, half the player that Ruth, Mays, Williams, or any of the other baseball greats. None of them had to cheat to get results.

So your saying that it isn't cheating when players use performance enhancing drugs, since they're not illegal yet. IMO, this argument is absurd. If Ruth used a corked bat (which I doubt he did), then he did use a form of cheating. He was able to gain an unfair advantage over other players. Maybe it's not even about cheating or not. It's about right and wrong, and what Ruth did (if he did it) was wrong, and he knew it.
