So if it is not such a big deal or difference-maker, then:

* Why did Barry Bonds increase his HRs from 34 to 73 (more than doubled from a sure Hall of Famer pre-PED)?
* Why did Sammy Sosa increase his HRs from mid-30s to 66?
If you think the last two bullets are relative to mostly weaker pitching, smaller parks and juiced balls, I have to say no freaking way.
PEDS are not like a pet rock. There must be something about them that causes all of the above to happen.
