Re: Pete just said he thinks Tracy Jones juiced
Tracy's incredible strength and workouts were chronicled in a few spring training stories in '87-'88. I remember the stories talking about him benching 450lbs and going on to detail his workouts which seemed extreme. I was an impressionable young man back then and was fascinated with Jones, Daniels, Larkin, McClendon and few others. I kept thinking if I could someday bench 450 I could be a big leaguer too. Crazy the stuff you remember.
It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
