Much like Rangers legend Nolan Ryan who was asked to throw out the first pitch in the ALDS for Texas, Giants legend Barry Bonds was invited to throw out the first pitch prior to Game 3 of the NLCS in San Francisco Tuesday. Bonds was in excellent spirits and received a nice welcome from his home crowd. What stood out immediately was how much different Barry looks. He’s no longer all roided up on horse pills and cow hormones and he actually looks normal. More accurately, as LBS contributor Alan Hull put it, he looked deflated (and we’re not talking about emotionally). Check out the pictures of Barry Bonds now and back when he was juiced up for comparison:
Looks a lot different now, doesn’t he? Any wonder how he bashed 73 home runs? The prosecution rests, your honor.
