Barry Bonds hit 70 plus homers in a single season and we're here talking about spitballs.
Cyclone and I used to go round about this: spitballs were effective in their era because they used to play the entire game with essentially the same ball. The thing was so dark you couldn't see it. That's why it was hard to hit.
