Bonds and BraWn are innocent. And so are Bill Ayers and O.J.

Selig wants nothing negative to be seen with or around the Milwaukee Brewers is my guess. He's pretty open about loving the team still. Who knows, just a guess, maybe a little bit of a conspiracy theory. When you have power like him though, its possible.

Key point. Milwaukee Bud's support was lukewarm (at best) to Bonds. He finally grew a pair and showed up to praise Bonds. Gee let me think what is the major difference between these two players. Oh Yah.

Bonds never tested positive. Braun did. News Flash.

Not sure. But in the 1880's, yes.

In 1889, a Pittsburgh pitcher named Jim "Pud" Galvin became the first baseball player to be widely known for using a performance enhancer.
