    How we did it. See also. Addressing the current record pace of homers across the league on a visit to CBS Sports HQ this week, he downplayed the notion that lots of dingers are bad for baseball. Physically, he's a lot bigger than he was.

    The previous record was home runs which was previously held by Henry Aaron. Barry stands right on top of the plate. But what baseball needs more than an investigator is an ethicist, someone who will help us know what to make of all this. And it is the subtext of the current scandal over steroids in baseball.

    Courtesy of MLB People who know Bud Selig well, especially those who have worked with or for him over a number of years, will tell you that he moves at his own pace. Longtime national baseball correspondent Richard Justice also worked closely with Selig in the early stages of the project. Even if a game is on ESPN and people will be watching, he will still sit out. He gets into his hitting position and holds it.

He also kept meticulous records of Bonds' program; the authors report that Anderson's records indicate that Bonds took up to 20 pills a day and learned to inject himself. I am a history buff, and so the history of this means a lot to me.

Barry is also much more selective at the plate and smarter about taking a day or two off. Also, this is the third book in the "Meg" series, how are people still unaware of the dinosaur shark underneath them?

I remember quite a bit about the man named Bonds. No one will read this book and come away wondering if steroids really work. In 12 years, he had never approached 60 home runs in a season, and he did not seem — as he did entering the season — on a course to threaten the career statistics of Ruth and Hank Aaron.

There's not too many rich black people in this world. I remember occasionally seeing one of his home runs on the news like when he bear hugged my beloved Twins hero Torii Hunter after Bonds was robbed of a home run during the All Star Game.

Editorial Reviews Having broken the single-season home-run record last year and gotten off to a charging start this season, Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants has established his credentials as one of baseball's all-time greats.

Pitchers tried to get Barry to fish and chase pitches. But he will take a walk. Barry is not a selfish player, saying he is going to hit the ball even if they don't pitch to him. In grand jury testimony quoted in "Game of Shadows," Bonds acknowledges applying a substance known as "the clear," which federal investigators say was a steroid, after it was given to him by his childhood friend and personal trainer, Greg Anderson.

He can pick up pitches and see little things other hitters can't see. Last season all of his walks weren't intentional. The book is due out next month.View Barry Bonds Baseball card values based on real selling prices.
