By Jim Tison This should go without explanation. Imagine had the Babe had those kinds of (ahem) "aids" available in his day and age. Further imagine that every sports legend been encouraged to use them and their use publically condoned.

But none of that ever happened, except for Bonds (and a few others who are going to either be banned from the HOF or have one of those ugly asterisks by their "record"). Society being what it is, I don't think Bonds needs to be considered in the next race for the HR record.
