Ok...so lets start off by acknowledging that Barry Bonds is one of the most hated and chastised men in this era of the MLB. That being said, most individuals state that this is due to his supposed steroid use and his record shattering career where be dethroned many athletes...most notably with the amount of Home Runs in a single season and a career. All that being said, it has never been proven that he actually used these substances knowingly.
Yesterday Mark McGwire former 1st baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals admitted to using steroids, and many are simply saying that he did the right thing, and Cardinals manager, Tony LaRussa, even considered using him as a pinch hitter to help and try and get him into Cooperstown.
I still don't understand why this isn't front page news...well I think I do...whatever
