It's a bitch. Pesky reporters, too.

Beginning in 1998 with injections in his buttocks of Winstrol, a powerful steroid, Barry Bonds took a wide array of performance-enhancing drugs over at least five seasons in a massive doping regimen that grew more sophisticated as the years went on, according to Game of Shadows, a book written by two San Francisco Chronicle reporters at the forefront of reporting on the BALCO steroid distribution scandal.

I actually like Bonds, especially as a player. But anyone with half a brain, hell even a quarter of a brain, realizes that dude was on "the juice." There is just no denying his sheer mass, head size, and power which, at his age as a player is just not right.

What's weird, though, is I hardly care. I still almost wish for him to beat Aaron's record - mostly to see how the press, the Hall voters, and the historians handle it.

Baseball purgatory, like Rose, is what probably awaits him. But it will be interesting to see.

Also interesting will be how he tries to diffuse this story like he has countless others. This book seems to have quite a bit of legs to it and these fools did them some research!

You like Bonds and you're not a Giants fan? You're a dying breed.

I sure as hell hope he doesn't beat Aaron's record. I'd hate to see a class act surpassed by an arrogant cheater. But maybe that's just me.
