  • Legendary slugger Hank Aaron • Regarding what he feels should be done about record-breaking players (ahem *Barry Bonds* ahem) who use steroids.

Sports: Compare and contrast: How three MLB stars handled steroid allegations

  • Barry Bonds He continued his major league career, ignored the allegations, set a home run record many fans consider invalid while the rest of his team struggled, and has spent much of the last year in court.
  • Roger Clemens He stopped his many-year trend of showing up to training camp somewhere and possibly playing in June if he felt like it. But he didn’t admit anything, despite a massive report that mentions his name more than anyone else’s.
  • Alex RodriguezHe admitted almost immediately after the news came out. He’s going to have a career after this. Good on him. source

Sports: Barry Bonds is in “the clear,” but not the good kind

  • Unsealed docs say he used steroids in ’03. The documents claim he used a type of steroid called “the clear” (also known as THG), along with a female fertility drug designed to help him beat steroid tests. Bonds, the all-time home run leader, is on trial for perjury and obstruction of justice for lying about his steroid usage. source
