hmm, lets see. In Ruth's day the pitching mound was lowered to favor home runs, the left field wall was shortened to favor Ruth's left handed hitting, and he notoriously corked his bats. Sorry, everyone's a cheat in that game IMO.
I've never once heard any mention of Hank Aaron being a cheat.
And right after the MLB strike, they switched to a ball that yielded a lot more home runs to get more fans back into the game.
actually Bond's has less at bats than Aaron, but I still dont like bonds.Hank Aron and The Babe also didn't have steroids and "strength enhancing" chemicals. There really is no comparison. Its apples and oranges really. Yeah, Bonds can say he has more Hommers now, but also, how many games did it take him to get them vs Aron too. Personally I think Bonds is a roid pushin looser. But then so are a lot of professional athletes these days.
I'm sure its just the nromal growth spurts that guys have in their mid 30s.from size 42 to a size 52 jersey; from size 10 1/2 to size 13 cleats; and from a size 7 1/8 to size 7 1/4 cap, even though he had taken to shaving his head.
The King has also admitted to using the "juice" a time or two in race events.It's no different than Richard Petty's Nascar record which cannot be broken now because the tracks he won on are gone and they don't run 40+ races a year now either.

(it's just that his juice was NOS) :tonka: :tonka: :tonka:
I think he's a tool, but its baseball in general, and Selig, which are the major problems.He is a total douchebag and baseball needs to clean up their act starting with bonds
agreed. they created this monster themselves.I think he's a tool, but its baseball in general, and Selig, which are the major problems.
After the strike whenever 10-15 years ago, baseball was basically dead. The popularity of hockey, basketball, and football are huge.
So, they turned a blind eye and didn't prohibit steroid use, and juiced up the ball. Face it, McGuire/Sosa HR derby brought a lot of people back to watching. Hell, I watched some times to see if he'd hit 70.
