Not by coincidence, since testing was implemented in 2006, the offense has gone away. Really not rocket science to figure out.
A few bigger stadiums has opened up in the 2000's as well. Petco, Safeco, Busch, PNC Park, Target Field. That certainly adds a bit too it as well. Combine it with better pitching and teams being more defensive minded (leading to lesser hitting players) and we are seeing some of the ramifications. There are certainly some explanations for why offense is down and it isn't automatically "STEROIDS".
