Read about it today, but it doesn't bother me, you still need the basic skills to get into the league. You can't give any monkey steriods and think he will be a star, it still takes talent. In the 80's, we used to take the hops from Oki to PI just to bring back a gym back full of the stuff, so even in the Corps, especially in certain units, juice is a problem. As for Bonds, its the same, you need the talent first. All the people that say the records should be taken away are full of it. They forget that equipment and basic nutritional science has changed so much that it is hard to compare eras. Babe Ruth was a different era than Hank Aaron as Bonds, all using different equipment and science to help them, so for their era they were all great atheletes.

Everyone is getting on baseball players for taking steroid. Why don't you go to the NFL and ask them how many take steroids. I bet it's just as much or more than baseball players. But no one is going around and telling them they were wrong and not athletes because of it.

Btw, Barry Bonds recently admitted to taking steroids. Under the basis that he didn't know they were steroids.
