And, ironically, the trainers who know the secrets are also the ones who deal in PEDs? McNamee and Greg Anderson being two of those miracle workers? The fact that we aren't seeing the numbers yet we still have the workouts and fitness revolution is telling.
As we'll see later, you say that steroids were most rampant in 2001-2004. Team HRs averaged 182 in 2004, 164 in 2012. How do you reconcile that?
The stats prove that scoring and home runs were declining while steroid usage was increasing. Again, that is the exact opposite of what your steroid theory would predict. Steroids causing scoring simply does not compute. I gave you a nice big list of reasons why home runs and scoring began decline after the 2000 season. Did you even read that list before you replied with questions that I already answered?
