I guess he finally hit puberty late 80's-early 90's. Even though he is an A$$h0!# you can't degrade what is the inevitable (715).
Hammerin' Hank still rules.

Too much discussion for a simple issue.

Would Bonds have hit more homers than Aaron without help from the juice?

No. When Bonds hits that magical home run, I will see this magic act for what it is. An Illusion.

IF he was and has been on the Juice then why isnt MLB doing something about it? Why isnt law enforcement doing something about it? over 70% of MLB fans are not in favor of him breaking the record. You get the feeling that if he breaks it anywhere other than In San Fran there is going to be a riot. Even then I can see there being a lot of pissed off fans at home giving him shit for breaking it. IT could be an ugly moment in more ways than one. IF Barry has any respect for the sport (assuming he did juice) he would stop one short and call it a career. We all know he can do it the way he is right now. The question will always linger, could he have done without the 'roids (assuming he was on them). Remember no matter whats been said in the media about him, there is no proof nor admission on his part. I hope for baseballs sake that he never took anything. IT is possible to have a body like his at his age with out juicing. The question is did he juice?

I think this issue is the fact MLB didn't list steroids on it's list of banned substances. So, even if MLB proves he was on the juice, it wasn't against the rules.

Or something like that... I know it's against the rules now, but it's too late to throw an asterisk or whatever next to 756+.

IMHO, without the roids Bonds is a Hall of Famer, but he never comes close to hitting 70 in a single season and he stays in the 500 club where he belongs.
