he shouldve stayed in seattle, take steroids and hit 850 homers as a DH later in his career. an extra 500 AB, less injuries, less wear and tear.. wish he worked out too.

Bonds sosa mcwire and clemens should be in the hof steroids or no steroids you still have to have some type of talent to put up the numbers they did steroids aside

Its weird their numbers got better as they got in their mid 30's. Thats normal ! But of course they had talent. All would not be mentioned in same breath as Griffey but the juice allows them to be mentioned in same category. Takes away from Griffeys career numbers especially if you didnt see him in his prime.

Griffey was the best of his era to do it if you ask me. Just felt he was a better defensive player than bonds.

If Griffey juiced he may never have been hurt and hit a legit 850 homers. He got a legit 630 and missed a ton of time in his prime.

Greatest juicer of all time.Bonds first 40 homerun season at 30 ,numbers then rose . Griffey by 30 had 2 56 homerun seasons, 49 HR ,48HR and hit 40 on pace for 65 in strike shortened year. Griffey clearly better fielder not worth even getting into.

Steroids were rampant in sports as far back as the 60s. He is punished because he had the skill and enhancements. Those other jabronies were barely hitting 35 hrs on the gas. And every pitcher was juiced. It was a time of the sport and it was an important one for it's longevity. There are most likely dozens of players who used PEDs in the HoF. So it's because it only made those good players great and made Barry go from great to GOAT that he is out. Having people with less credibility than you or I voting these guys in is a joke.

Barry Bonds was the best baseball player of all time before he even went to the Giants. He had 9 gold gloves and was 40/40. Simply the 🐐 its a goddamn shame if he doesn’t get in.
I think he, Rose, McGwire, and Clemens get in. McGwire will get in before Bonds and Clemens. He’s still crazy popular with fans and the media and just got into the Cardinals’ HOF. Rose will get in but he won’t be alive to see it. Bonds and Clemens may get in after 20+ years by veteran committee.

@M T that's true I agree with you on that but it can generate faster bat speed and it will turn those routine pop fly outs into home runs.

I don’t agree with roids but roids don’t make your eye contact for the ball better 😂

Some of you people don’t realize how much steroids actually help you. Faster bat speed= much much much easier to hit a baseball, the distance it goes is just a plus. Bonds probably would’ve been great without steroids, but we don’t know because he still used them

Baseball execs are scumbags. Most of us remember the state of baseball at the time coming off strikes. It was weak and completely broken. Along came Sosa and McGuire and they breathed life into a lifeless baseball body. They knew players were juicing at the time and were ok using it to recover itself. But then spit them out when they were done with them. Those are straight up facts.
Fred Bet And the commissioner who oversaw it all is in the HOF. The irony!

The fact that the media, half of them that have no type of athletic talent who are just “professional spectators” of a game, are the ones who vote to me is still ridiculous. Voters should be players and coaches who actually know the work and time players have to put in to be hall famers. This needs to change!

I been saying this for years! The media should absolutely not decide who gets in the HOF. Those guys a lot of times hold grudges against certain players for whatever reason or another.

It's a joke. They hold their grudges from when a player wasn't kissing their a$$ for exposure. The fact the someone as qualified as Skip Bayless (just meaning a talking head who spews opinions as facts) gets to vote and control the most prestigious honor in the game is criminal. Bonds is a first ballot hall of famer and anything less takes credibility away from the HOF. Clemens as well.
