People emotionally freak out when their sacred paradigm is challenged, even when it rather easily disproved.
lol okay because before McGwire/Sosa went all nuts in 98 there had been TWO players in baseball history to hit 60 HRs and then Sosa went and did it 3 out of 4 years. And the top 6 single season HRs in baseball history happened by Bonds/McGwire/Sosa. Brady Anderson hit 50 as a 32 year old after never hitting more than 21. Bonds hitting 27 more HRs as a 36 year old than he ever had in his career.
Bonds hit .370 and .362 as a 37 and 39 year old. Had a 1.045 OPS as a 42 year old.
