Out of the Shadows

According to the book, Bonds, in comments to his mistress, Kimberly
Bell, often dismissed McGwire with racially-charged remarks such as, "They're just letting him do it because he's a white boy." But Bonds looked at McGwire and his hulking physique and decided he needed to dramatically increase his muscle mass to compete with him.

One of the game's greatest players ever, marred. I'm sad because
he's been the best player of my short lifetime, and this just coincides
with another great(Kirby Puckett) dying.

Both flawed men, both great players. But it's hard to separate the on and off-field problems.

Talk about it here.
