…. Going in for the kill

The Giants beat the Dodgers again last night, this time by a 6-4 score. Bonds homered again, and gave David Pinto something to think about:

…. So what do we make of (Bonds’) fantastic start?

We’re in the third year of serious drug testing, and no steroids or other PEDs turned up in Bonds. He allegedly tested positive for speed, but most don’t put uppers in the same category as steroids. There is the possibility that Bonds uses something that isn’t detectable. (Other than HGH. I hear now that HGH doesn’t build strength.) But we also need to consider the possibility that the test are correct, and Bonds is free of perfomance enhancers.

In other words, we have to consider that a forty-two year old man with two surgically repaired knees and a surgically repaired elbow can still hit with the all-time greats. If this is true, if he can put up numbers like this old and disabled, how much did performance enhancers really help him?

Hmmmm… A well-thought out, reasonable approach to the Bonds question. Now I’m amazed. ;-)

Leave it to David to come up with the most clear-headed ideas on the subject.
