    Was about to say this. Didn’t he fly out to the track on his last AB?

    The Mariners magical era and steroids were pretty much the same time


    Barry Bonds was beyond great. Fuck the hatters

    Baseball hasn't been the same since imo

    Brett Boone was roided up, but I never felt that Griffey was

    Edgar was. I’ve always felt Junior got an automatic pass when he very easily could have been roiding. I KO ent until proven guilty, but every star but him was supposedly using steroids.

    I find it hard to believe that anyone having high end success in that era wasn't taking something. Junior is no exception. No, he never got ripped or any bigger aside from his ass, but not everyone using PED was trying to get big. There are other benefits to be had...reflexes, hand ey coordination, etc.

    Edgar's power benefitted from the short right field at the dome and he was clearly frustrated a few times after the move when balls were caught on the track. Just a year or two later his homers became notably longer amd more abundant and he looked bigger. It was pretty obvious.

    Means nothing to me. I don't really agree that the game is worse now, but it was undeniably great then and IDGAF if the clear and the cream were the reason for it.

    I'm not giving Junior an automatic pass, but I just felt that beautiful swing was going to get homers with or without roids.
