defense is a little too general, because throwing also factors into that. ... I would maybe suggest accepting "glove, arm, contact, power and speed."

Possibly strong arm for throwing as well. When I'm describing one of my players or scouting someone else's I don't say he is good at throwing, I say he has a strong arm.

Bonds at the top of the home run list is a joke. I wonder how many Aaron would have popped had he been all 'roided up.

im guessing the same amount as he has now. Steroids will do nothing to make you hit a baseball better. Plus Bonds was walked more than anyone, many intentional, which reduces his chances of getting a HR. Steroids literally played no factor in him being able to hit a baseball better.

Wow, do you really think that? Helping one make contact .. no. Helping one hit the ball further, turning deep fly outs into HRs ... absolutely!

A little knowledge is dangerous, skibumb. If you think steroids don't help players hit more HRs, then I've got some land in Florida you might be interested in. To quote Jose Canseco, "Steroids make a good player great and a great player super-human." For 87 years prior to the Steroid Era, a Major League player hit 50 or more HRs in a season 17 times. In just an 8 or 9 years span at the height of the Steroid Era, that feat was accomplished 18 times.

Saying, "steroids literally played no factor in [Bonds] being able to hit a baseball better" doesn't make it a factual statement. In fact, it just shows your gross ignorance on the subject.

The truth is complicated. It's my belief that steroids probably had some effect, but nowhere near as large as the average person seems to think. The greatest difference was likely among older players who benefited from the quicker recovery time that taking steroids can give. So, yeah, Bonds probably wouldn't have been able to set the record without them. But even so, he's one of the top 5 pure hitters of all time.

Then again, the pitchers were taking steroids too...

If we are playing the "What If" game, I don't think it matters because Griffey would be at the top had it not been for so many injuries late in his career.

@quizmaster a lot of pitchers were juicing too which allows them to throw harder which makes the ball harder to hit. But when you actually do hit it, it goes further. This was in addition to the fact that the hitter was on steroids which allows him to hit the ball further. For a guy like Bonds who had no issue ever making contact the roided out pitchers probably helped his HR totals. For everyone else who wasn't a complete freak of nature I wonder what the effect was...

Undoubtedly, steroids helped Bonds hit home runs. That said, he had the best eye and the best hands at the plate I've ever seen. Steroids don't do that. Let's not forget how much the MLB brass loved all the dingers, especially after the fallout from its debacle in '94 (poor Expos fans!).

Bonds was an all-time great hitter. An egomaniacal jerk, but an all-time great hitter. When he saw all the accolades that McGwire and Sosa were getting, knowing full well that they were juicing, he decided he would one-up them both. That's why his HRs/AB ratio skyrocketed so late in his career. And why his head size grew in his 30's, unlike what normal human growth is like.

And there is a difference between something helping you make contact and something that helps you hit the ball further. Bonds had phenomenal hand/eye coordination. But the steroids added bat speed and strength. As a result, long fly outs turned into home runs. Anyone who doubts that is either a fanboy or an idiot.

Took a while to remember Citi Field. Tried Downing Stadium first. (apparently the New York Black Yankees Negro League team played there prior to 1950)

Was hoping you were going to find a way to include the greatest outfield in MLB history - on June 21, 1998, vs the Houston Astros, the Cincinnati Reds featured Dmitri Young (LF), Mike Frank (CF) and Chris Stynes (RF) in their lineup. Young, Frank & Stynes!

Excellent, excellent quiz! As for the steroid argument, it is complex and the issue becomes more complex when we factor in that a far greater number of players were using amphetamines, too. I think PED use should be banned, but I also don't think that all who ever used it should be stripped of their accomplishments or anything. If I had a hall of fame vote, I'd absolutely vote for: Bonds, Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, and Manny Ramirez, but I'd not vote for McGwire, Sosa, or Rafael Palmeiro. That is because I believe that Bonds, Clemens, Arod, and Manny would have been hall of famers without PEDs, and that McGwire, Sosa, and Palmeiro would never have put up the numbers that they did without getting help. Yes, PEDs would not take someone like me or any non-pro athlete and make him a pro, but when you add it to already good or great players, the results can be huge.

To end my PED point: If you or I took PEDs, we would not make the major leagues. But for those alread there, it helps a lot not only in power, but in recovery speed and stamina. Adding PEDs to incomplete players like McGwire, Sosa, Palmeiro, and many more made them all-star and even at times MVP-quality. When you took a 3-time MVP in Bonds and a 3-time Cy Young winner (and 1 MVP in his own right) in Clemens, then you get the greatest hitter/position player ever in Barry Bonds (4 more post-PED MVPs for a record 7 overall), and the best pitcher ever in Clemens (4 post-PED Cy Youngs for a record 7 overall). Bonds and Clemens were 2 of the greatest 20-25 players in the history of the game, so when you added PEDs to what was already there, you had THE greatest position player and THE greatest pitcher...but their pursuit of being top 10 hurt their rankings and legacies so that you rarely see them now on top 10-15+ players ever lists, because no one knows what is real and what isn't.
