After the lockout when fans weren't attending the game anymore because they had soured on greedy owners & the game lacked excitement, McGwire & Sosa SAVED the game! Steroids & mainly "Andro" brought baseball back to prominence. Owners, managers & Bud Selig the commissioner all knew Andro was in full effect but yet didn't place this drug on MLB do not use list. Why? The owners & Selig was benefiting from the notoriety that was stemming from the chase & making billions of dollars. It was so rampid & obvious that I once saw McGwire do a interview with the Andro bottle clearly visible in his locker! Lol Bonds who was clearly the best all-around player of our generation & at that time 4-5 time MVP was on the outside looking in at Mac & Sosa getting all the publicity & just wanted to be on the same playing field so he took HGH which was also not banned. They let him break all the records legally by the rules & wait for him to retire from making all the money he could for MLB & owners, then when he tries to go into the sunset they whistle blow! Just wrong! Bonds is a NO-BALLET HOF meaning there shouldn't have even been a vote. We knew what we saw for through 2 decades before the alleged HGH use. The man was the greatest player of any sport I ever seen & argubly the most dominant athlete of any sport all-time. Too bad he never left SF & played with other great teams or great players elsewhere.
