    Ibanez vs Bonds

    There was so much made about Barry Bonds' unreal statistics after the age of 38 and just about everyone agrees how he was able to do it.

     

    However, I keep reading all these articles about the stats that Raul Ibanez has been putting up the last few years (he's now 41), yet none of them even mention the dreaded "PED".

     

    What gives?

    Raul Ibanez faces far more stringent drug testing than Barry Bonds did late in the latter's career (and more stringent than Red Sox great Ted Williams did in 1960 when the Splendid Splinter set the single-season homerun record for a player over 40 with 29 dingers).

    That article was from 3 years ago.  There are plenty of substances that tests do not pick up

    Because no one cares about anything Ibanez does.  

    Bonds was breaking sacred records while being thoroughly unlikable and adopting a Victim Complex.  Ibanez just flies under the radar.  The man could guzzle Stanislozol while injecting himself with horse tranquilizers while standing in the batter's box anf no one would do a thing.  "Raoul being nobody,"  they would say..
