    SI is blowing the lid off Bonds

    A new book is about to be released that details Bonds steriod usage. It is detailed in the SI article below. If these two authors have any credibility then it's going to cause havoc for Bonds and MLB. Very interesting article that details the great lengths Bonds went to get juiced. And the reasons why;jealousy of the attention McGuire was getting during the 1998 season.

    I'm not going to go back into the archives and do anything childish to prove a point, but......

    This topic was discussed heavily two and three years ago, and there were several members of this board who did not believe Bonds was juiced.

    I think Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams from the San Francisco Chronicle have more credibility than Jose Canseco. They have been on the front lines of the BALCO investigation.

    ...and in other news today, the Earth did not crash into the sun.

    "Shocking revelation" this ain't. Will be curious to see how MLB handles it, though.

    This isn't Richie Sexson or Adrian Beltre, though. This is the single most recognizeable star the sport has. I'm not sure the media will LET them ignore it.

    It took congress threating to get involved to get a decent steroids policy.

    MLB will love the media attention.

    I agree. The media coverage for this will last beyond the playing days of Barry Bonds, and MLB will suck up every ounce of it.

    Re: SI is blowing the lid off Bonds

    Olberman was on the Dan Patrick Show saying that this book has the potential to be for Bonds what the Dowd Report was for Rose. He also said that if this is proven to be true, if Selig is any kind of Commish, every record of Bond's would be stricken.

    Apparently when Bonds was questioned about the book he said something flippant, somthing like he wasnt going to read it and wasnt going to respond to it. They made the point that a normal person's reaction might be something more along the lines of "I'll Sue!!"

    CNN is owned by the same company as Sports Illustrated. Little bit of synergy going on there.

    I just don't understand why anyone would want to take something that gives you "sexual dysfunction" and baldness. I mean I'm a Certified Financial Planner and well I do like to make money but I would draw the lines somewhere.

    I never looked into the side effects of steroids until this article but it does make the Palmeiro/Viagra deal more understandable.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
