So, does he juice?Posted Monday, August 6, 2007, at 10:03 AM
This photo came in an e-mail this morning. As my boss said, this looks like an editorial cartoon waiting to happen.
This weekend, as most of you know, Barry Bonds tied Hank Aaron's home-run record. I still haven't decided how I feel about it.
As far as baseball players go, I don't really care for Bonds. Of course, being a die-hard Cardinal fan I probably shouldn't, but I just don't like his attitude. He seems to be kind of hung up on himself.
His chase for the record, or the single-season record, just hasn't had the same feel as it did with McGwire and Sosa.
I honestly don't think the steroid mess has pushed that many people away. While it might not have been spoken about for years, the existence of steroids in baseball hasn't been a big secret. I mean come on, how else does a player put on 40 pounds of muscle in the offseason? There's only so much that can be done without some type of chemical assistance.
Baseball commissioner Bud Selig didn't even seem to be all that impressed with the shot. He had this "get me out of here" look on his face. You would think at the very least he could have pretended to be interested.
His comments afterwards made clear just how unimpressed he was .
What do you think? Do you think Bonds has been juicing? Does he deserve to be where he is?
