As I've said, it has nothing to do with if he was great. He was great before he cheated. He cheated, so he lost my respect....along with the rest of them.

But a billion dollar business couldn't test for it?

They weren't illegal because no one knew they excited!

Bonds is a cheating douche.
McGwire is a cheating douche.
Sosa is a cheating douche.
Braun is a cheating douche.
[Insert cheater here] is a cheating douche.

It's because it wasn't illegal at the time. Just like andro. And ephedra. And test 400. Once the decided it was illegal...




And again, If it was that easy why has no one been as dominant and great as bonds? A Rod Braun man ram... No one was even close.


He was special. End of story.

Greatest ever? Maybe. Maybe not. Greatest of 90s and 2000s? Yup

As great as Miguel Cabrera is right now, why isn't he as feared?


This s**t is like politics and religion. No one wants to see it any different than they believe.

Only thing that will be agreeable is that GGG

Bonds wasn't feared until he started taking steroids.
No one feared the guy on the left

lol Bonds wasnt feared before 2000? from 1986-1999: 3 time MVP (top 5 in MVP voting 7 times), 445 HR, 460 SB, .409 OB%, .559 SLG (.968 OPS), 2010 hits, 423 doubles, led baseball in walks 5 times, etc.

I love when people post a picture of Bonds when he was in his 20's next to a picture of him at almost 40 and act like it happened overnight. Because people usually have the same body at age 40 as they do at age 25...

Dude once bonds allegedly started using he gained at least 20 pounds and his batting average went up 30 points (from .290 to .320ish) his stolen bases also dropped (age had something to do with that too)
Was bonds a great player? Yes
Would he make the HOF pre steroids? Yes, Being the only member of the 400-400 club kind of guarantees that
Should he make the HOF now? No, if Pete rose isn't in because if gambling, these cheaters def should not be in!

Agreed. AJ has a temper, but the ump should have whispered in his ear he missed the call. That would have killed it before ball four. Power trip, and no ump accountability.

Halladay to make a rehab start Thursday

If everything goes well Amaro said he'll only need 2 rehab starts before hes back in the rotation

Curious to see how he pitches. They say his arm slot is 6 inches higher then it was before

I'd rather pitch him in rehab, then continue to work on his mechanics in the off-season.

The Angels pickup of Tommy Hanson looks so bad that the club sent him down to Triple-A.

Imagine if that was Josh Hamilton?

Never liked Tommy Hanson. Horrible mechanics and an arm injury waiting to happen.

I believe he was out for a bit last season due to a back injury.

When I read he was going to the AL, I said oh shhh.

Jason Vargas.....never sold on him

Joe Blanton.......lol he was already a bad pitcher

and

Ryan Madson....never pitched an inning for the Halos.

A summary of a piss poor off-season for the Angels. Josh Hamilton is another chapter.
