The thing that kind of kills me is that they're ALL undetectable, until they're detectable, then you're fucked. So you're just chancing it anyway, because the odds are that eventually they'll be able to detect what you've been taking somehow if you continue to cheat. You don't think that Ben Johnson's trainers told him he was taking undetectable stuff, Barry?

I'm just amazed that nobody seems to care. As long as he's hitting long balls, the fans don't care, and as long as he doesn't test positive, MLB doesn't care. How much will he boost attendance around the league next year when he's going for Ruth and (possibly) Aaron's records?
The man could even admit it, and, while everybody says "I hate that asshole", they still buy tickets, they still fight over the balls, and Bonds still makes a lot of people a lot of money. The media loves this stuff because they don't exactly love Bonds, so it's reported like mad, and while I don't like it, it doesn't seem to affect anybody else. Hell, you just had a guy (Sheffield) admit to using, and MLB said "That was 2 years ago, you're fine" and they let him play.
This is stupid. This is something completely designed to destroy reputations. Accuse a guy of something that you can't prove he did in such a way that he can't defend himself against it. Not defending Bonds or anything but this really does sound like bullshit. It all just comes down to accusations and denials without really changing anything.
Well, this is his trainer we're talking about. The trainer has denied it in public the whole time, so to catch him on tape saying that he did use steroids isn't really an accusation. The trainer is dumb though. He forget the first rule: DTA.

Wins above replacement is a terrible stat for judging the performance of a pitcher. Let's look at the two extreme cases here. Pitcher 1 never gives up a run. His ERA is 0.00. The opposing team will always strike out against him in 9 pitches.
