Barry Bonds is a cheater

Bonds is a cheater

Update: I found this hilarious. Despite not mentioning steroids anywhere in this article, these ads popped up. Someone selling legal steroids must have bought the keywords for Barry Bonds.

Without a doubt any record he breaks should have the biggest asterick available next to it. It is disgusting the way the media drools over every move he makes when there are much more exciting things going on in baseball. I could care less if he breaks the home run record. If he does, hopefully Hank Aaron will refuse to participate in the charade.

first of all you are a dumbass for saying that about barry bonds. There was no law against using steroids so there is no problem with him doing it. If he used them when there was a rule against them, then there would be a astericks. So dont say anything against him

I agree with parker, he sounds like he knows his baseball. Barry Bonds is an amazing player, he deserves those batting titles.

Actually Parker, there is a law against using them without a subscription, so not only should all his stats be thrown out, his butt suspended from baseball for life, but he should also spend time in jail.

Barry Bonds is the biggest cheater on this planet. His girlfriend said he admitted to using steroids and its his own damn fault for not knowing about the products his trainer gave him. I also think that he knew they were steroids because barry bonds is an ass pounding cheater. If he died it would be good for baseball because then the homerun records would actually be legit. Barry Bonds i hate you because you are an assclown

O what now barry bonds. It seems that the steroid punishments are going to be enforced more and now it seems that after the 3rd time that they test barry bonds for steroids he will be banned from baseball forever. then we will be rid of at least one of the cheaters. I'll give everyone a few good reasons why Barry Bonds is a homo who is on steroids. 1. His ex-girlfriend told reporters that Barry admitted to knowingly using steroids. 2. Barry said he "unknowingly" used steroids which is total bull [expletive deleted] because anyone who uses steroids knows they are using them. 3. I think it was Giambi's trainer who got caught giving steroids to Giambi and it was the same trainer Bonds uses. 4. Anyone who criticizes the accomplishments of Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron can just go to hell. Also, even if bonds were to break the record ruth is still better because he played in the deadball era where spitballs were used, the equipment wasnt as good, and there were still no lights in baseball, and the medicine wasnt as good so injuries were more devestating to careers. The last reason i have for barry bonds being an [expletive deleted] cheater is because he is an assclown. Barry Bonds can take his acne covered back and jump into Mccovey cove with some damn bricks tied around his ankles so he dies; just like he almost killed baseball by being an [expletive deleted] cheater.

Hey parker ur a [expletive deleted] assclown. Anyone can say whatever they want about barry bonds because the [expletive deleted] cheated. Like Brian said there were rules against steroids and Barry is still using steroids today when there still are rules against steroids. There also should be a damn rule saying that Parker, cameron, robby, and taito (what the [expletive deleted] kind of name is taito anyways. u need to get on the damn raft that brought u into this country and sail away to wherever the hell ur from. I hope a shark eats u on the way too) can't get gay with each other all the time. F u all and suck on my junk

Who ever says Bonds is not a cheater is so wrong. The man says he didn't know what was going into his body, are you kidding me that is like saying I didn't know it was pot I was smoking. The man never hit more than 49 HRs in a season and then out of no where hits 73. The man gained like 50 pounds in the matter of like one season. Have you seen pictures of him goes from a stick off a tree to the whole trunk. Also his doctor says that Bond's "gonads are the size of peas" I'm sorry but when that happens, you are not using artritus cream. I'm sorry to tell you Parker and all that agree your wrong.

The hardest thing to do in all of sports is to hit a baseball. Yeah, a proven fact. Any man can be huge and swing a 50 ounce bat a hundred miles an hour, but can he hit a projectile being thrown at different speeds and coming at different angles? Im not saying Barry Bonds is or is not on steriods and isnt "cheating", but according to Jose Conseco everyone is... Even pitchers which he is hitting off of are on steriods. We are in a different era of baseball, players are bigger, faster and stronger. In Hank Aarons era, when he feasted on expansion pitchers, he had an advantage too, Barry sees a different pitcher every at bat. So there are many cases you could argue with both players about advantages and disadvantages. Being an ex pro baseball player myself I can tell you Barry Bonds is twice the baseball player Hank Aaron was if you put them in them in the same era in the same cercumstances. The END.

GARC. Steroids may not help you hit a baseball (though they do because bat speed is a main component in that), but they sure as hell can take a guy hitting 20-25 homers a year and help him hit 50-70.

i think that maybe barry bonds cheated or maybe he didnt..im not sure if he did but he very well could've. he maybe did use steroids but hopefully not. i think barry is a great player. just taking steroids dosent make you necessarily a better player. i've known a person that has taken steroids. and his shoulders seized up and couldn't throw a baseball again. i'm glad there are new rules against steroids. i think that steroids need to get out of the game. but players like alex sanchez or mike morse who get caught using steroids, and can only hit like 2-3 hr's a year is sort of bullshit.
i'm out

Critics have noted that when Bonds was a rookie on the Pirates in 1986 that he was a lean 183 pounds. Now he is built more like a football player. Bonds weighed 185 pounds in 1998; Bonds was listed in the 2000 Giants media guide with a weight of 233 pounds. Just look at him – he is one big muscle.
Big Mac (Mark McGwire) gained 17 LBs in 14 years. Buy the way Mark hit 49 Hommer's his rookie year. Bonds hit 16. Bonds gain 50 pounds in two years! That same year he hit the 73 dingers.

That's a Winner! What a Cheater! What a Loser!

I'm balck so don't call me a racist about this. It has nothing to do with being Black. It has everything to do with cheating. The Cardinals Albert Pujols is the real King on and off the field. Just like Kirby Puckett.

I agree with Jeff. From Pete Rose to Barry Bonds, the love of the game went out the window at some point. These were gifted athletes. For want of fame, fortune, noteriety they screw the game and the fans that gave them so much. Its obvious Barry was on the "sauce". Was 73 homers worth having your "nads" turn to "tads"??? I speak from personal experience. The name BALCO should say it all to anyone who knows this "game" (designer drugs). Thats the reason his girl friend bolted. Guess he can go back to his "never divorced" wife. Long live records of the Hammer and the Babe. They got them the old fasioned way, they worked hard.
God Bless Kirby Puckett!

After reading over many opinions on this page i have come to a conclusion. The Giants organization is the biggest winner because they are profiting on one of the biggest money-making scemes in the history of baseball...the long ball. In the business of making money, no one cares how its done. Making a quick buck is all the Giants care about - they know he's been "juicing" and they're just turning their heads. I think its sad Bonds fell into the "trap" of steroids, he certainly would have made it into the hall without them.

p.s. - You should pick up the latest issue of Sports Illustrated (March 13th)

The difference between Pete Rose and Barry Bonds is simple. At least Pete didn't bet AGAINST his team. It was obvious to everyone that Bonds was doping. Just like BIG MARK, he lied to the fans of this great game. I would love to see Pete Rose in the Hall before either one of those two. Pete didn't do anything that 85% of the general public doesn't already do. As for those "home run records", they need to be erased from the books.

Anyone who thinks steriod use in baseball is acceptable has the brain capacity of a cro-magnon. Barry Bonds is a cheater of the biggest kind. You will see some saying that there were no laws or rules against it in baseball? Yes there was, it was FEDERAL, not MLB! It is a federal crime to use steriods that are not prescribed. It was also against the rules of baseball. What the worthless lawyers have done is this: they say that the particular substances were not mandated until 2003, so therefore they are NOT against baseball. Is this what we have come to as humans? Obviously taking drugs that increase your testosterone levels many times is not going to be acceptable in training. All these substances are precursors to testosterone. So basically all these substances create testosterone when they enter the body. They are steriods. They make this era of baseball illegitimate. We must do something now if we are to save the game of baseball for our progeny.

I agree with you Artie, however, most of the numnuts reading your post don't even know what the words "cromagnon" or "progeny" mean. ESPECIALLY fans of the "bronx bums". You Yanks fans understand that don't ya? Youse Guys! Ya Bums! 200 million plus in payroll and still can't bring home the hardware. Jeter is the only ballplayer on the squad who's not a BMW(bitchin,moaning and whining for all you yankee fans) player. I think steinbrenner should have traded the whole team for a truckload of Tyson chicken. Yankees need B. Bonds. Add anoyher 100 mil to your payroll and you can all go down together! Andy and The Rocket did the right thing. They knew that the bronx biotches have more baggage than the titanic, and headed in the same direction. Why do yankee fans continue to support the most "expensive" payroll in professional sports that ,year to year, don't have any better chance of winning the world series than the atlanta braves. I see the "bronx bunnies" signing marquee (means big name for you yankee fans)has-beens for big dollars. Most of these players are on the backside of their careers and just want to have on their resume's that they wore bunny pinstripes before they retire. I hope Bonds does leave SF. NY Yankees deserve him, heaven knows George can pay the price.

What the f*** is wrong with steroids... if they can enhance your baseball skils then why the hell not... if i had some i would take them... they would make me look better physically, and they would make me a power hitter.. and barry BOnds is a f***** great player... steriods cannot give you consentration, or the skills to make a diving catch.. they might help you hit farther... but hey f*** it.. if it works why not.. instead of banding it.. just let everyone take them to make it fair.. so that everyone will be equal and strong... and if they dont like that then f*** them.. and im am sure that barry has takin them because a man that big cannot sound that much of a b****.. when i herd him speak for the first time.. i was expecting a deep mans voice instead i herd a 10 year olds voice.. i was like wtf. for sure hes on some s***..

B.Bonds is achieving records in an unlawful manner. Steroids are illegal, in society, no matter what sport. Although with a perscription they can be taken legally to repair damaged muscle tissues. B Bonds was not using them for that reason. Also his "I didnt inhale" excuses are outdated. He knows he looks like an ape and swings the bat like one as well and he can go to hell.

to all those ppl who actually think barry bonds is the best baseball player can just suck a huge ass c*** for being so damn stupid, first of all how do you look like a stick, then end up looking like a tree 100 ft high in like a year, like wtf? and he ends up hittin 73 homeruns.... thats just all bs, nobody can hit that many homeruns unless sumtins boosting you up, barry.. just confess you fat big piece of crap! dammit man ur dick probably looks like a fly now just fess up u piece of crap. i think ALL of this stats and awards should be erased and burnt, it just pisses me off so much that he was an mvp and has 700 homeruns, somebody just kill barry bonds so NOBODY wont have to see him already, hes a f**, bonds is killing the game of baseball and i cant wait till Selig finds out the real results of that monkey. I HATE THAT FAT OVERGROWN BABOON HE CAN JUST GO TO HELL

hey joemamma, tell us how you realli feel. dude, you are dead on track. actually the bsball players are a little behind. nfl players have been doing the shit for years while Roselle and Tagliabue turned a blind eye. y'all remember "Lyle Alzadoe"? baddest mf ever played for the raiders. dead by 41 via steroid use. liver went bad, had transplant, continued using the s***, ruined 2nd liver, kidneys shut down and the dude died. weighed 165 lbs and was 6'6".
upside of lyles situation was that he "came out" against steroids before he died. guess barry and balco weren't listening.

Barry Bonds was one of the most tanlented players in the game ...but his a cheater...steroids..might make you hit more homers...but at the same time it destroys your body..let me ask you a question ...what do you prefer? Homers or a healthy body? hah..? Barry Bonds prefered to damage his body in order to hit more homers...wrong choice pal..

Bonds is undeniable one of the best hitters to ever play the game, but, not only does he "big-league" everyone around him, how do you know how much of this power actually came from the steroids? I deffinately think all of his records should be astrisked because, noone can prove that he could have done this with out the steroids. And, JoeMomma...Your balls actually do the majority of the shrinking.

testo-sterone. (notice the last part of the word? All steroids look CHEMICALLY similar to testo-sterone, hence the name steroids).The longer his body goes without making its own test, the less likely it is that it will ever get back up to full production. At this point his penis will indeed see a loss of size..I don't care if it was Harry Reams. If and when he comes off the "juice" a loss of musculature will become evident within a matter of 2 or 3 weeks. This is not to mention the damage done to his liver, kidneys and most os all, his heart. The heart is the only muscle that gets bigger and maintains its size. Why is an enlarged heart dangerous? Because it requires more blood to pump than a normal size heart. If Barry goes for a mile run or running sprints, his heart pumps faster. Keep in mind during his drug regimen his blood volume has not increased. Now his heart is pumping faster, faster and then too little blood to pump, then......FULL BLOwn CARDIAC ARREST! A little dick is the least of BARRIES worries.

The only reason Bonds was able to hit those 73 home runs in the 2001 season was because of the drugs. If he wasn't juiced, he would not have been in the physical shape to hit the HR's and his numbers would have been around 40 (give or take 10) for that season. Take away his 73 HR's for the 2001 season and let the rest of his stats stand. That seems to be the best punishement for an assclown cheater. Oh and take away the 73 AFTER he retires. Yeah, yeah there are those willing to go down with the good ship Barry Bonds, but the history books will call him a cheater and rest of us will curse his name for tarnishing Babe Ruth's name.

I remember when I was 5, my friend asked me if I liked the Giants or the A's. I had been briefly introduced to baseball and instinctively answered Oakland A's. Thank God. I would hate to be a SF Giants fan right now, trying to remain one of the brainwashed SF faithful, blindly supporting the WORST thing to happen to the game. Yes, THE worst, even worse than the strike in 94! Barry Bonds cheated for 73. Barry Bonds cheated for 714. Today, Barry Bonds cheated his ass off for 715 and no one in the media seems to give a crap.
"What Bonds is doing is great for the game, forget for a second the allegations of steroid abuse". What a load of garbage. My mother told me growing up that cheaters never prosper. Today, Barry Bonds called my mom a liar.

Barry Bonds is one of the greatest players of all time. You can never take away his accomplishments. They will always stay. Even if they are erased from the books, you can't take away what he accomplished. NEVER!!! If Bonds is convicted of using illegal performance enchancing drugs, then you should take away all the other records, because you never know what other players from the past might have taken. Pete Rose always had "greenies" before his games, some form of a drug. Bonds' godfather Willie Mays kept a bottle of red juice in his locker, the same thing, except in a liquid form. So if you take away all his milestone home runs and his 73 homer season, then the other records should be erased. Barry is one of the greatest and definitely should go to the Hall of Fame. Steroids may have destroyed the game, but they saved baseball. Why? Because attendance grew to see players like Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro, and Bonds hit home runs that go out of the ball park. What would you rather see? Little RBI singles or monster home runs, like Sosa's 524 foot rocket at the home run derby. If Bonds is not indicted and even if he is, and he breaks Hank Aaron 755 record or he doesn't, then I will always compare him with the best players, such as Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and a bunch more. And, how could have Hank Aaron hit 755 home runs with all that hate mail and death threats. He must have used something, right...? Barry Bonds will always one of the greatest players baseball has known. And that's just how it's just going to be. You can NEVER take away what Bonds did. He is still, one of the greatest players EVER!

Barry Bonds will always one of the greatest players baseball has known. And that's just how it's just going to be. You can NEVER take away what Bonds did. He is still, one of the greatest players EVER!

The end

Barry Bonds accomplishments are meaningless. He is/was/will be, a crybaby, cheating loser.
I hope Bonds gets out before his tainted home run total surpasses Aaron. Barry Bonds is neither the ballplayer, nor the man that Ruth and Aaron were.
You're a cheater Barry. Are you proud?
You loser.

If those accomplishments are meaningless to you, then you try doing them too? Let's see if you'll ever hit 723 home runs or steal 509 bases. Just try!

They're meaningless to people because he cheated moron.

How do you know he cheated, smart guy? Are you the grand jury? Show me some evidence that he cheated, Mr. know-it-all. What a smart guy we have here.

You can't be serious? I really hope you're a 9 year old Giants fan, otherwise you bring new meaning to the word naive.

Brian, I really hope you're a light sleeper, because when Bonds breaks the home run record, he'll be all over you like a bad itch. I really hope Bonds breaks the home run record so he can rub it in your face.

At the rate he's going now, it'll take a few more years for him to get there. And since he cheated to get at least 200 of those homeruns I'm not really sure how that proves your point.

Seriously dude, how old are you? 12?

Not exactly. Bonds' knee hasn't healed 100% yet. He hit his 724th home run in San Francisco's 7 - 5 win over San Diego. It was Bonds' 84 home run against San Diego, most against any opponent, in case you missed it. At the beginning of the season, Bonds' knee was ailing badly, but now since it has healed more, he's hit more home runs. He has 16 on the season, 708 when he started the year. He hit most of those in the middle of the season. For example, he hit home run number 714 (they won that game 4 - 2 against the A's) and 715 in May (they lost that game 6 - 3 to Colorado). He hit 716 in June (a 14 - 2 beating by the Giants over the Marlins), 717 also in June (an 11 - 4 win against the D'backs), and # 718 two days later against the Mariners (they lost 5 - 4). He hit 719 at the end of June against Oakland (they won on Ray Durham's walk-off HR in a 8 - 7 win). He hit home run 720 in July against the Dodgers (they lost that game 9 - 7). He hit 721 at the end of July or something against Philadelphia (they lost 6 - 2). He hit 722 against San Diego in a 9 - 3 win. He hit 723 in August in a 5 - 2 loss to Colorado. And now, he hit career home run number 724 in a 7 - 5 win over the Padres. That's my point, when Bonds' knee keeps healing, then he'll start hitting more home runs. He just might get to 730 at the end of the season.

Actually his homerun pace after the All-Star game has slowed down. He's going 5 more at bats between homers since the break. Don't let facts and performance enhancing drugs get in your way though man.

His knee will never be 100% again, funny that he doesn't seem to recover as quickly as he used to. I wonder why...

Maybe what you're saying is true. Early in the year, San Francisco struggled because Bonds was really the only person doing anything on that team. Early in the year, he leas San Francisco with 13 home runs. But now, Bonds' teammates have stepped up. Ray Durham has gone on a real tear, he has 19 home runs this year, and has sort of evolved in to a David Ortiz clutch hitter. He's done it many times. Games like in San Francisco's 2 - 1 win over Los Angeles early in the year, Durham had the game winning sac fly for the win. Also, in San Fran's 7 - 6 win over Milwaukee, Durham drove in the game winning runs to win. Players like Steve Finley have stepped it up, Pedro Feliz, Eliezer Alfonzo, and Moises Alou. Bonds is getting more help from his teammates. Maybe that's why. If Bonds doesn't break Aaron's 755 record, then he should be able to pass Aaron's other record: Hit 733 home runs with the national league. He has 724 right now, and all 724 have come with NL teams - the Pittsburgh Pirates (1986 - 1992 in which Bonds hit 176 home runs with the Pirates), and 1993 - 2006 with San Francisco in which he's hit 548 home runs. That's as many as Mike Schmidt has hit in his entire career! Also, Bonds is the only player in major league history to hit 100 home runs with one team (176 with Pittsburgh) and 400 with another (548 with San Francisco). The Giants were the best team in their division and in all of baseball in 2001 - 2002 when they made the world series but eventually lost to the Anaheim Angels, but they did get pretty close. I mean really, when Bonds hit 73 home runs in 2001, he went from 493 home runs (tying Lou Gehrig) all the way to 567 home runs. Imagine all the players he passed - Lou Gehrig (493 HR), Eddie Murray (504 HR), Mel Ott (511 HR), Ernie Banks (512 HR), Eddie Matthews (512 HR), Willie McCovey (512 HR), Ted Williams (521 HR), Jimmie Foxx (534 HR), Mickey Mantle (536 HR), Mike Schmidt (548 HR), and finally, Reggie Jackson, his distant relative who had 563 home runs. He passed Jackson with his 564th home run, also his 70th home run of the season. Seriously, the guy is a great player.

Don't believe the book of Game of Shadows a.k.a what a stupid book - waste of paper - toilet paper costs more than that book. If the authors of the book, Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams wrote the book, then why won't they testify in the BALCO investigation? To not give up their sources. That's such a load of B.S. I could have come up with a better answer.

Dude no one cares. He cheated and everyone knows it. You keep bringing up stats, none of which mean a damn thing since he had to cheat to put all those numbers the last 8 years or so.

Did you really just call Ray Durham a David Ortiz-type player? And you're trying to claim Bonds has decided NOT to hit home runs since his teammates "stepped it up"? Good lord help us all. I guess that's why the Giants are in last place, Bonds is such a great team player he's decided to suck on purpose.

The Game of Shadows authors were subpoenaed because they leaked grand jury testimony. You know the one where Bonds essentially admitted to taking the Cream and the Clear? They wouldn't have been called to reveal their sources if they were just making up information.

It still doesn't matter. The government does not have ENOUGH information to indict Bonds and everyone knows it. They had a chance when the first grand jury's term expired, but they didn't indict Bonds on perjury or steroid use. Bonds' hasn't been indicted yet, which means no one can say anything against Bonds. We don't know if he used steroids. No can officialy say he used performance enchancing drugs. We CAN say that Rafael Palmeiro used steroids because he was caught, and his drug tests came back positive. We're not talking about his records or anything right now, we're talking about STEROIDS and BALCO, and it just seems the the federal government doesn't realize that. There are all these polls that have absolutely NOTHING to do with the BALCO investigation. For example, I saw one that said: If Bonds is indicted on steroid use, should his records be taken away? WHO CARES ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW? We're talking about something else right now. Just leave Bonds' records. Since Palmeiro got caught, why didn't his accomplishments go away. So you're going to punish a player even harder just because he's heard more around the world. That's stupid. And plus, without Greg Anderson, this investigation is all for naught. He's not going to talk, which means the government should shut up too. Greg Anderson is the key piece, and his lips are sealed. He's not going to say anything which means, basically, nothing is going to happen to Bonds without Anderson saying something. Anderson is Bonds' friend, and he's just not ready to burn him like that. That would mean Anderson was a traitor. HE ISN'T GOING TO SAY ANYTHING, SO YOU CAN JUST FORGET ABOUT THIS INVESTIGATION. Go watch some Yankees-Red Sox instead or the basketball world championships (Team USA beat Puerto Rica 111 - 100 in the perlinminary round in the basketball championships).

Barry Bonds is a god. I don't care what anybody says about this steroid thing. Of course this ex-girlfriend says he used them so she can get back at him for breaking up with her. She's just pissed at him so that's no proof. He never tested positive, I'm sick and tired of people just hating him and booing him even if they don't know all of the facts. Everybody shut the hell up and respect the best baseball player ever!

Posted on August 28, 2006 at 11:11 PM

And even if Barry did use steroids, which he didn't, how many steroid users have there been in baseball? Over like 1,000? and how many players have hit 725 home runs? Oh yeah only 2, Barry Bonds and Hank Aaron. So it doesn't matter, Barry is amazing.
