An interesting fact occurred to me today after noticing Barry Bonds cranked #755 off Clay Hensley. Hensley tested positive for performance enhancers back in April of 2005. Seems more fitting than if Bonds had nailed one off Greg Maddux. Sometimes we forget the little people busted for performance enhancers. Fortunately Baseball’s Steroid Era is keeping track.
Is it possible that Bonds could crank #756 off a once-juiced pitcher too? Probably not, unless he enters a long slump until the Giants face the Brewers on the 24th. In that case he could nail one off Derrick Turnbow.
