    first off, this is NOT a book going after barry bonds, its a book going after baseball in general





    giambi shot a needle full of roids into his ass directly in front of several reporters, and then told them it was a vitamin shot...


    wtf?

    lol





    this book shines a light on every cheater in baseball



    its fuckin amazing.




    point being tho... i think this book and what it says about bonds in it gains a little more credibility when u read it and see the hardcore evidence, irrefutable evidence, against him, but it makes it even more credible that its not just bonds that they talk about it, but all baseball players, thus eliminating the conspiracy theorists' ideas that this is a barry bonds smear campaign




    this book is the truth.

    only this one gives hard evidence and testimonial to the facts, not just the testimonials of one black-balled player with seemingly some kind of vendetta

    yeah it's crazy to think Canseco is the man that actually got the ball rolling on this steroids thing.

    i think the biggest name young guy your going to get is Juan Rincon...

    i think a couple of the big hitters from that era who are still around like Arod and Griffey benefited from a thinned talent pool from expansion, and the way pitchers had to alter their games due to everybody hitting homeruns...it's like everybody was a threat...even brady anderson...
