I'm just the opposite.
Personally, I don't have a problem with people using steroids if they are willing to pay the health prices

I need to preface this by stating that I do not follow baseball.
Having said that, I believe that it should be stressed that Barry Bonds never tested positive for steroids. It became an issue because of the allegation by Jose Conseco as contained in his book. He also made allegations against Mark McGwire, although I don't think the controversy was anywhere near the level as it is with Bonds.
IMO, Conseco's book is simply a vitrolic litany of unsupported claims against people whose careers he can ruin and, therefore, how many books he can sell. He seems to be a bitter person who had less than a stellar career.
From what I understand, the press never cared for Bonds because he didn't/doesn't cater to them. I think it is shameful that he is being castigated for something that has never been proven.
Lastly, from what I understand, steroids may make you stronger, but it doesn't enhance anything else. That is to say, steroid will not help if you can't hit the ball. The same goes for pitchers - steroid won't help if you can't accurately throw the ball.
