Barry Bonds’ Home Run Record Tainted by Mechanical Device

Michael White of Editor & Publisher gives us another reason to believe Barry Bonds home run record will be tainted and this one has nothing to do with steroids. White believes that Bonds’ has a “mechanical” advantage due in part to the device strapped to his elbow every time he comes up to bat. Sure, it looks like protective gear but chances are it may be more than that.

White says, “The apparatus is hinged at the elbow. It is a literal “hitting machine” that allows Bonds to release his front arm on the same plane during every swing. It largely accounts for the seemingly magical consistency of every Bonds stroke.”

White goes on to give 8 more logic reasons as to why the hitting machine strapped to Bonds’ elbow will have added 75-100 extra homeruns to his career total by the time of his retirement.
