From his mlb diary: (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/news/article_perspectives.jsp?ymd=20050323&content_id=974896&vkey=perspectives&fext=.jsp)

My family has been incredibly supportive of me because playing baseball is what I've always wanted to do. But there has to come a time when I take some of this (muscular) weight off and forget what other people think or want me to do.

If I want to live until I'm 80 years old, I'm going to have to become a leaner-type, cardio-type individual who keeps his heart rate up. I'm not going to fight that losing battle against my weight when I'm retired and my metabolism slows down.

Yeah that was a head-shaker / eye-roller. I would have posted this myself, but I've been so weak since giving up the flaxseed oil.

Let this be a lesson to you, kids. Stay away from the flaxseed oil. Just say no.

As we have been told, steroid use comes with all kinds of repercussions. One of them is acne. Another is rage. And another is that, over time, parts of the body may begin to deteriorate, ligaments and tendons may endure unnatural strain, weight-bearing parts of the body may slowly begin to deteriorate because of the stress caused by additional mass and weight.
Like the knees, for example.

AH...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

God stop... You're killing me Barry...

I am dying here...

Please stop...

Make the bad man stop hurting me with laughter Mommy...

I swear... I've got tears streaming down my face...:D::whiner::D::whiner:

Too freaking much...

Oh Barry, thanks... I needed a good laugh...

Just for the record, I thought bigger muscles meant better bone density and a stronger cardio vascular system in general. Why would that be a hinderence to living to 80? :dunno:

It's not the big muscles that are going to kill you young, Barroid, IT'S THE ****ING STEROIDS...:rolleyes:

He's slimming down not because he's had to get off the 'roids, but because he wants to live to be 80. Sure, Barry. We all believe you.

WHAT? All of a sudden being muscular decreases life span?

I better stop lifting now. What a joke. I used to try and defend Bonds, but it's damn near impossible now. I wonder if he realizes if he kept his mouth shut about all this stuff it wouldn't nearly be as big as it is.

This guy doesn't get it. It's going to be a great day when he's finally banned from baseball.

If being muscular takes years off your life, hell. I'm going to make it to 110.

A retired Boston sportswriter just looks at the mess

There is only one story this week. That being the historic humiliation of baseball. The licking they put on the game was savage and raw. Our congratulations to Congress. Apparently, they had nothing better to do.


Many people are shocked. More still are embittered. "Say it ain't so, Mark" goes the cry. But it is so, alas. And Mark will pay by forfeiting his little cubbyhole in Cooperstown, which had been considered a lock. It's sad.


There's a lot of anger out there, especially among the baseball scribes who got taken for a ride in the bogus home run festival of 1998. They are out for blood.


For the relative few of us who never took that patently contrived assault on the record book seriously and recognized at the time that there was something radically and terribly askew, there is no righteous outrage, no thirst for vengeance, no demand for Mark McGwire's scalp. There is only sadness.
