he was very good before he got huge all of a sudden. IDK you don't see records broken everyday, and i felt that i should appreciate it. He was one of the greatest in baseball in my opinion, it would be like rooting against Jordan for me. Yeah you can argue that the power isn't as real, but if you look at his Avg and Obc it's still very impressive, yes the threat of the homerun bolsters these stats up a bit as well, but i don't think anyone could have cheated as good as Barry did. That is it doesn't take just anyone to pass this guy, with or without steroids.
