I can’t stand the ESPN jackasses and play by play guys… They are the dumbest misinformed bunch of retards EVER! I guess if you have a microphone you know what your talking about…
Tim McCarver and Joe Buck should not be allowed in a baseball stadium, Rick Sutcleif is a bitter ex player who never acomplished anything great in his carrer and still holds grudges against former teams/players he played against which is blatanly obvious in his commentating.
I can hardley watch a baseball game anymore even though it was a game I LOVED as a kid because of the annoucers. They are either out of date bitter old men or young guys you agree with everything these bitter old men have to say.
What gives you the right to talk about steriods in ANY context if you have never done any research?
The double standards are mind boggling.
They mention how Griffey JR, Alex Rodriguez, and Frank Thomas are clean great homerun hitters and they are doing it “the right way” What PROOF do you have to throw out comments like that with NOTHING to back it up. Just becuase they didn’t gain some muscle over their carrer? (which all of them have BTW.)
Hell I heard a sports talk radio show a couple weeks ago mention Tiger Woods is probaly on roids because he looked “to jacked” Thing is he was just wearing a very tight t-shirt…
They act like a sports stars who have gained 15 pounds of muscle over their carrer are juice monkeys, maybe they do more than pushups, run, and eat hot dogs now unlike in your time of “pure” baseball.
Hell Shawn Mermain of the San Diego Chargers tested POSITIVE for some sort of steriod last year and what did the NFL do? Give a minor 4 game suspension, blame supplement comapnies for spiking legal supplements with illegal products and on their own tv network say how horrible it was that Shawn Mermain had to go through this. Of course the supplement or comapny was never reported even though I’d sure like to know some legal supplement I might be taking has something in it that is not listed!
This is why the NFL is HUGE and growing more year after year, while I wouldn’t be suprised if MLB as we know it is dead in my lifetime.
BTW I HATED Barry Bonds as a player when I was a kid, even when he was on the Pirates. I NEVER Liked the Giants even though they are a hometown team.
I have a new found respect for Bonds now that I am older and I realize all the unfair biased BS he has to deal with when all he is trying to do is play baseball.
I hope he crushes the record and retires. The bad thing is this won’t go away even after he retires.
