Post Strike -- Home Runs Go Boom

When the records were broken by Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds I was as excited as the next guy. Sure, like all the announcers were saying, the ball was juiced and the stadiums were small but the playing field was balanced and fair. Everyone played on the same field and with the same ball. The game was healthy. America’s pastime thrived. Baseball was back

Then I read a book. Actually I read two books. One was called Juicing the Game and the other was called Game of Shadows…

I was stunned.

The ball wasn’t juiced. The players were!
