BIG PAPI ON BONDS
David Ortiz thinks everyone should give Barry Bonds props because he’s not sure steroids even help Bonds.
“I look at it hitting-wise, because I don’t know what steroids can do to you as a baseball player. You’ve still got to swing the bat, man,” Ortiz said. “If I ever use steroids, and then I know what the difference can be and I’m using them, I’ll tell you, ‘Yeah, whatever,’ but I don’t know what the feelings are when you use the steroids. But I can tell you how it feels to pull yourself together to swing the bat.”
He can’t possibly be this naive. He continues:
“I tell you, I don’t know too much about steroids, but I started listening about steroids when they started to bring that [stuff] up, and I started realizing and getting to know a little bit about it,” Ortiz told the Herald.
Maybe Big Papi better read up some more. No one disputes Bonds has a great swing. Bonds won 3 MVPs before he ever even started taking “supplements”. If he had retired before his 4 consecutive MVP award seasons I still maintain he would have been a Hall of Famer. But to think that roids wouldn’t help any player is ridiculous.
