Excite - Sports News: "Bonds hit his 712th homer in San Francisco's 5-3 loss to San Diego on Tuesday, moving him even closer to matching Babe Ruth's total for second place on the career list. "

Yep, he probably has taken drugs. Everyone has known it for some time now, just as we knew that Sosa and Mac were taking drugs. Baseball made a lot of money on those two after the scandal of the strike year.

So why jump on Barry Bonds? Nope, he shouldn't have taken drugs, but who knew what Ruth and Aaron were taking? Ruth drank a lot of booze in his life and probably shortened his life quite some time. It wasn't fair for Aaron to take better care of himself and have so many more games than Ruth. If Ruth had played as long he might have hit 900 homers. Who knows. And what about Mantle? If he had taken care of his legs and his liver he might have hit a bunch more. What does it matter anyway? Put Rose in the Hall of Fame, give him his records. Get off Bonds back and lighten up. Baseball players have never been really respectible anyway, have they? If skateboarders can smoke pot, why not a few steroids for the baseball player? It's their body, isn't it? If a woman can kill her baby to be happier, why cannot Barry have a bit of an edge in the batter's box? Besides, how many pitchers beefed up a little? It's about happiness and self-esteem. Isn't it?
