One of your favorite atletes? Your standards are hella low my man. Im not asking offensively, but what years of Barry did you watch with the most intent?

I just can't believe anyone would have any respect for this douchebag of a player

He is easily one of my favorite as well. Look, I understand he was juicing, but so was every other baseball player...and had been for a while before he even started playing.

I watched him since his trade to the Giants. Who cares what kind of person he was off the field? He entertained his fans like no baseball player before him - and that's all it really matters.

Hey I'm sure there were 4 or 5 players who refused to juice. And they probably had incredible careers in Triple A.

Are you suggesting that Bonds was taking up their place?

It was more of a joke that if you weren't roiding at the time, you were probably weren't gonna cut it. BTW, for the first time ever I'm gonna play fantasy baseball. I noticed all of the 50+ home run hitters have disappeared. When I was a kid, everyone had someone in their line up hitting at least 45 it seemed.

I hope that cleared it up. I can't respond anymore because I'm planning my 2k post.

Oh okay. Bautista hit 50+ HRs last year. Many ppl think he is taking something. Yea, batters were doing steroids, and pitchers were doing steroids. People think 90s and early part of 200s was the steroid era. Steroids and greenies became a big part of the game in the 60s.

Greenies, yes. Steroids, no.

Greenies, yes. Steroids, no.

Anabolic steroids have been part of the game as far back as 50s. I read an article a long time ago, where a player was quoted talking about steroids use during that time. Greenies were a bigger part...player from the Braves during the 60s talked about they'd be in a jar like coffee beans around the lock-room and players popped them all the time.

The point is, people took all kinds of legal and illegal things to get the edge over others - and that's been true since long time ago. Those things were legal then, but illegal now. Some player talked about how players used to take high doses of caffeine. Yes, even very high dose of caffeine can give you serious edge over a player who hasn't taken it.
Arguedas also quizzed Bell about an e-mail she sent to Bonds' website in April 2004 listing all the women she knew that Bonds was sleeping with in New York, Phoenix, Las Vegas and elsewhere.

"This is the guy who you described as having penile dysfunction," Arguedas said. "That's a lot of action."

I would imagine so. There was never really a case to begin with.

Such an effing waste of time. Who's gonna prosecute the prosecutors for stealing tax payer's money?

Good one. I lol'ed.
I can understand why so many hate him, especially when they are not Giants fans. But hey I don't care, he was one of my favorite players to watch. The most feared hitter, seemed like every AB something awesome was gonna happen
