    Baseball players don't change their batting stance or swing a whole lot... And then we have Barry Bonds... Here we have a guy who bulked up like the Hulk and changed his swing ENTIRELY... That's not natural...

    I can see Barry going after the authors of this book too... :redface2:

    When Bonds testified, he was given immunity...except for perjury. Oops?

    Eh, whatever. Is there anyone out there who honestly belived Bonds? The human body does not miraculously alter itself, no matter how hard you train. This is as much the fault of the MLB as it is Barry Bonds.

    The difference from 98 - 99 is already evident. Look at the size of his head by 2001.

    Yeah, I'd say '98 was the last time he looked normal... At his age, you're not supposed to get stronger and bigger... It just doesn't work that way...

    Wonder if he'll play this season or simply retire? I bet it will be the latter.

    I file this story under the sarcastic "No shit" category.

    Sammy Sosa, I'm preparing a folder for you next!

    My wife won't be very happy about that (the standing...not Barry).

    And not to be random, my son knew the first letter of the alphabet as early as 15 months old. To this day he still points to my giant (no pun intended) A's refrigerator magnet and yells "A!"

    I really don't care for baseball, and he's one reason. I hope he vanishes. I can't stand to think of someone like him holding another record.

    I'd love to go to a game at Dodger Stadium just to see Lowe or Penny strike him out.
