Bonds, Sosa, Giambi , Canseco etc

Their stats should be highlited as suspect of performance enhancement and, please , don't pull off the No Facts Crap, anyone who has been to a game and seen the size of these guys know that it is not natural.

I watched Canseco hit 4 Home Runs in one game, it was like he was swatting flies.

Re: Bonds, Sosa, Giambi , Canseco etc

Those guys and others should be ashamed to be mentioned with the likes of Mantle, Gehrig, Williams, Ruth...

Mantle could've probably hit 800 if he'd have been healthy and sober in shape...

Gehrig, cut down in his prime...

Williams, off to war...

Ruth, out-of-shape partier (must have been a Yankee thing...)

These modern day "sluggers" are doing it with steroids and watered-down pitching...

Ole Hammerin' Hank wasn't some juiced bulked up monster...
