Well, I'm pretty sure that Ankiel was in the minors in 2004, therefore any steroid would be illegal. As for if HGH was specifically on the list, I haven't a clue, but for people to try and justify it when they would be the first to crucify Bonds smells of hypocrisy.

To me I see it as less of a PR stunt and more of a psychological stunt. The hitters see this "man possessed", who is bleeding out of his surgically repaired ankle, pitching through the pain to dominate a game.

If you really believe that Bobby Bonds never used greenies then you are in denial. These have been a big part of the game since the sixties. Willie Mays was named in the cocaine investigations of the mid 80's as giving amphetamines to one of the accused to help him play. Willie Mays and Bobby were teammates and good friends, so I find it likely that Bobby took these things as well (according to some players only one or two players on each team got by without any greenies before the ban). They even had "leaded" coffee in each clubhouse, which was speed laced coffee. When TJ Quinn was asked how many players failed the amphetamines test last year, his response was that he never got a quantitative answer, just that there were a lot. It seems this is a lot bigger problem than just Bonds.
