Brian Giles. No way the vein in his neck is naturally that big. Come to think of it, Marcus Giles looks like he does 'roids too.

first of all, this is a great thread idea.

1) Gotta second the Javy Lopez love...where had that sneaky Lopez been hiding all that power?

2) Bret Boone took steriods

3) To be original I would just like to throw Steve Finley's name in the hat...I just think he juiced.

4)Clemens is too obvious to warrant an explication.

This thread is PAINFULLY stupid. I think he creator of this thread just wanted to see 5 pages of responses to his post.

EDIT: For those who will then say "Why'd you bother to even read this thread", #1, i only got halfway thru page 2. #2, Trust me, i won't be back in here.

I'm not sure Gonzo should be such a slam-dunk, either. I saw a year-by-year photo essay of his batting stances a couple years ago -showed how he had basically changed himself as a hitter, and the evolution coincided with his different teams and batting instructors. The whole photo essay was presented as a primer on the evolution of a hitter, and was pretty compelling. It made it reasonable to think that Gonzo may have found his groove a bit later than normal - just before his production began it's normal decline with age.

Was he evere really even that huge? Easy thing to say, but I thought he was always tall and lean.

I agree. A thread ripping into baseball players are legally innocent of the crime they are being bad-mouthed for. This is stupid.

painfully stupid?
i would tend to say it attempts to provide some sense of entertainment. There are threads here on stats and figures, those are like the international section of the newspaper. Everyone should read them because it is information that will open your eyes to new things.
This thread is like the cartoons. One can read it, for a laugh, for entertainment.

If you can't appreciate it bounce.
