A lot of people use this argument, but here is my objection:
Obviously steroids improve your strength, and in some cases quickness. A bat's weight is a big issue for players, but the lighter the bat seems to a player, the quicker the swing will be, and the easier it will be to control his swing, there for making contact more.
As far as Sosa and McGwire, they struck out a lot. But Bonds' swing is much better than theirs, and he was very good when he was skinny too. So he def. has very good contact, but I still find it hard to believe his bat control and quick swing is all pure at this age. just a thought.
