Look at the physique of Mantle, Mays, Aaron, Clemente, Robinson, et al and then compare before and afters of Bonds, Sosa and McGwire. I stand by my previous post so we can agree to disagree.
Simply having huge muscles doesn't necessarily equate to hitting a ball far or throwing it harder, having great concentration and faster reaction times means just as much. I've played against plenty of massive bodybuilder type guys in softball and it is hilarious to watch them try and swing a bat.
