      Well, they should still be able to manage a top 2 or 3 pick, even if they can't out-suck the Astros. I like Hollon, Martinez and Meadows in this class at this stage, so that could work out well for them.

      I also really like Soler, so I think Epstein has already made some very impressive moves.

        Really? You make a fuss about Bonds and Clemens, but not McGwire after the last 2 years?

        Oldie but a goodie.

        • McGwire is nowhere near the league of Bonds or Clemens.

            He's admitted that he bet on games as a player, was it just not on his team? I can't remember.

                As far as I remember he didn't bet on the Reds as a player

                  Dude that placebo effect is what made Bonds look like he belonged at DE over LF. If you can dream it, you can be it...

                    Even if the roids don't help you square up a ball it certainly keeps you in the lineup longer and adds distance to the long ball. Ask Brady Anderson and Brett Boone if it helps.

                      No, he just played a long ass time to accumulate those stats

                      Steroids didn't improve Bond's insane hand/eye coordination and his legendary plate discipline. The increased muscle mass improved his raw power but moreso it probably just helped him sustain his ability for a longer time than the normal person

                      we are still talking about a dude who likely hits 500+ bombs with 300+ SB's. Probably doesn't break the HR record but still, easily one of the best players ever and easily the best palyer in my lifetime

                        You're too smart to be all full of the stupid as all hell steroid argument. Steroids help you recover from injuries faster, increase muscle mass (there are thousands of legal substances that do this as well), and increase stamina/help you have a longer career (ditto). They didn't magically make Bonds a great player when he was older, his insane work ethic did.

                        • If the Cubs and Astros both really want the first pick, the Pirates would gladly love to sweep the next three series for them.

                            • ....******* seriously. It's like arguing with a creationist. Just look at the damn fossil.

                              There's absolutely no way in hell the guy on the left hits 70+ HRs.

                                You do realize Ty Cobb played the same lengthy career right? (both played 23 years) Just checking.

                                No but are you saying they don't make players bigger, faster and stronger?
