Barry Bonds sorry he was such a 'dumbass' all those years Barry Bonds got labeled as rude, surly and obnoxious during... I do not let a player’s usage or suspected usage influence me. There is no way of truly determining impact, nothing else from that era is “penalized” (are we eliminating the Yankees’ World Series championships, won with players like Clemens and Pettitte?) and the penalties for usage do not include a HOF ban unless you test positive three times. If they are eligible and on the ballot, PED usage should not be a factor in voting.

Remember, nothing is alleged to--or can have--happened to all of MLB over some one or two seasons: the claim is that PEDs were being used at a slowly but steadily increasing rate (and thus "distorting records") from very roughly 1980 through the present. Were that so, or anything like it, we would expect to see a clear long-term uptrend during this period. But we don't: we see a nearly flat line that, if anything, slopes slightly down. The "boost" just isn't there. But that doesn't seem to stop anyone from talking about it.
