Maybe it's not all the HGH and/or Steroids. Check this article out concerning his armguard.
http://www.editorandpublisher.com/ea..._id=1003621797You don't know much about society or baseball? Or you think race has something to do with this?
As the MLB commissioner he represents baseball. Baseball (like all sports) it's nothing more than entertainment. Without fans to be entertained there wouldn't be professional baseball. Selig not being there to celebrate an * was a perfect way to represent what the fans think.
Selig is partly to blame, no doubt.
First, your guess means nothing. Second, while lots of guys were probably juiced how many of them have evidence (circumstantial or not) against them for doing so? Even out of that list you gave there are some guys you're taking a blind guess on. Third, Bonds is the only one breaking records right now. We aren't roasting Sosa because the guy is hitting .243 with 16 HR. Sammy would be getting killed if he was going for the triple crown.
More speculation. Were there plenty of great players in the negro leagues? Of course. You don't know if they were the best. Furthermore baseball was king back then. Bonds is playing in an era where the best players are on a court or football field. Should we add another * to 756 because of that?
Now your comparing ballparks dimensions to steroids and segregation. C'mon guy.
I noticed you left out the number of at bats Bonds has had compared to Ruth. Convenient considering that has more of an impact on HR totals than anything you've mentioned. Guess we can just call it 756***
Maybe, that's why they are called fanatics. Too bad we will never know. Until that happens it is the Giants fans who are crazy and delusional, not the ones in LA.
back to back dingers! i think i need a pretzel!!
