From what I remember the minors always had tougher testing policies than MLB and hey had hgh testing a while ago....I think since they don't have a union they can't fight strict testing and all that.
Look I am not going to go on and on with this.
I believe what I believe, and it's based on research.
All I know is that If steroids are as effective as you think they are the question still remain.
1. Why has offensive production remained consistent with historical trends.
2. Why aren't player numbers more volatile than normal.
THE FACT REMAINS: There is no evidence of any enhanced player performance to be found in the STATISTICS of the game.
If steroids are effective for hitting a baseball, they are invisible to the measurements that we have available to us.
Unless someone can actually show me proof, I'm not going to buy steroid hype just because they work in other sports.
Wait what!?!? so dudes who hit like 20hr max per year suddenly getting massive power and hitting upwards of 45homers isn't enough evidence to you? Roids and HGh aren't even just about improving your power, they help accelerate healing and let people have much faster recoveries from otherwise debilitating injuries that would take a while to come back from. What proof do you want? A lab test on a guy off Roids and his power an strength then test him post Roids? C'mon now man.
Look at a dude like Griffey, one of the GOATs and m favorite player ever, he missed like 700 games and still got 630 homers in an era where mad dudes were on the juice. He had a natural break down of his body over the years. Had he been juicing Griffey would've gotten 800 EASY.
Barry Bonds going from a great all around guy with speed to a dude with arms busting out the sleeves and his head growing 2 sizes bigger isn't evidence to you?! nobody is saying bonds wasn't a GREAT player before he juiced but Roids make a mediocre player have increased power and you can hit balls longer than you would otherwise that's common sense. Yeah you still need to hit the gym but it helps you get stronger much faster and recover much quicker to do more reps. That's one of the more ridiculous things I've seen.
