You can ad whatever you want but it wasn't an example of begging the question. Applying normal aging curves to project performance is an established technique.
Assuming Bonds wouldn't age normally in a scenario where baseball was clean actually requires justification.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
