I'm watching a classic SF Giants game from 1989. All of the players look so skinny.

This must be the pre-roids era.

1. Exactly - they are all muscle, no roids.
Check out baseball players from the 70's. They look like normal humans.

Sports is all about roids now. The stupid has finally caught up to the guys who report about it.

2. Late '60s you still have skinny players. No 'roids, working out and more day games did that. nt
