Question of the Day

From the AP:

The evidence keeps mounting that Barry Bonds might have been juiced for years.

Steroids. Human growth hormone. Insulin. He may have used them all during his pursuit of the home run record.

An upcoming book written by two San Francisco Chronicle reporters reveals the San Francisco slugger took quite the cocktail of performance-enhancing drugs for at least five seasons beginning in 1998 — despite his constant denials and claims of being clean. Bonds has always insisted he earned all his accolades from good old hard work.

Should Barry Bonds get an asterisk (*) on his home run records? (For you younger readers, Roger Maris had an asterisk next to his Babe Ruth-beating record of 61 home runs in 1961 because the season was longer than it was when Ruth set his record. It plagued Maris for the rest of his life.)
