The Science of BarryBondsology

Whatever your thoughts are about Barry Bonds being at 713 career home runs, here’s an interesting editorial from USA Today called “No Scientific Evidence,” giving plenty of reasons beyond steroids for why baseball players today are so much stronger than they were in the past. The reasons include:

  • Better nutrition, from childhood to adulthood
  • Better training, from childhood to the pros
  • Larger pool of players to choose from
  • Year-round training and weight training
  • Medical and surgical procedures that let players recover from injuries quicker and have longer careers.
  • Changes in ballpark design

[We miss Romania, but it has been great to be able to go to a couple of Cardinals games (and see an Albert Pujols home run!) and to watch baseball on television.]

Grace and Peace
