Bonds would be dumb not to take steriods. Without them hes a hall of famer, with them, he might be the best player ever. 750 homers and 500 steals? thats unfathomable.

How can you say Bonds would be dumb NOT to take steroids? IF he did, he achieved the records you speak of by cheating. And those records may be thrown away. That's smart???

Posted by: Ron | April 29, 2007 9:46 PM

If the records are "thrown away", it'll just be because of a combination of racism and press abuse. Bonds' records should not be thrown away, unless baseball is willing to scrap Clemens' records, Schillings' records, McGwire, Sosa, Palmerio, Ivan Rodriguez, Lenny Dykstra, the entire early 90's Phillies, on and on....

BTW, you should add Curt Schilling testifying in front of Congress that "he had no idea there was a steroid problem in baseball", when he was on one of the biggest steroid-abusing teams ever (that Dykstra team)...
