Clearly creamed


I just watched the first at-bat back for Barry Bonds. On the tenth pitch, Bonds launched a shot deep into left-center. Initially, it looked like a homer; FoxSportsNet even did the "HR-Bonds (704)" scroll at the top of the screen.

Well, it turns out Jeffrey Maier was in attendance, or perhaps it was Jeffrey's ugly uncle. Either way, a fan reached out and caught the ball. What looked like a homer turned out to be a long, long double. Bonds scored a couple pitches later on a Ray Durham single.

Keep in mind that this was Bonds' first live at-bat of 2005. Love him or hate him, one has to concede that was pretty impressive.

Comments:
Agreed. What was also impressive is that he didn't miss a pitch, fouling off several before hitting the double.

It is a shame we won't know how his accomplishments have been affected by steriods.
 
It is a shame.

I wonder what would happen if Bonds put up another year or two approaching his '01-04 numbers, during the current testing regime?

(He's probably too old to approach that now, but who knows.)
 
Generic Zocor Simvastatin drug is an hmg-coa reductase inhibitor or "statin" used to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride levels in your blood or to raise good cholesterol (HDL) levels in adults.

Generic Lipitor ATORVASTATIN drug belongs to the group of medicines called 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors.It works by blocking an enzyme that is needed by the body to make cholesterol, thereby reducing the amount of cholesterol in the blood.

Generic Crestor Rosuvastatin drug is used to reduce the amounts of LDL (bad) cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglycerides (another type of fat), and apolipoprotein B (a protein needed to make cholesterol) in the blood. Rosuvastatin also increases the level of HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood. These actions are important in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis (fatty deposits in the arteries), which can lead to heart attack, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.

Generic Norvasc Amlodipine drug is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and to treat angina (chest pain).

Generic Plavix Clopidogrel drug is used in the prevention and treatment of heart attack, stroke, blood clots, and acute coronary syndrome.
