    Yachtzee, Bonds could still be playing, yes, but at this level? There's no way on earth. I refuse to believe that without steroids, he'd be within shouting distance of Aaron. Hall of Famer without steroids? No question. All time home run leader? No way.

    Steroids are supposed to reduce the amount of recovery time after physical exertion. So, in theory, they'd help pitchers rebound faster after an appearance.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    It can help a pitcher throw just sheer gas. A bullpen guy could benefit from this, especially a closer.
