    ESPN.com - MLB - Computer study claims 1998 baseballs were juiced

    Is it steroids? Juiced baseballs? A combination of both? None of the above?

    How was it that a record that stood for so long has now been blown out of the water 3 times in 4 years?

    1961 - Roger Maris hits 61 homers to break Babe Ruth's record of 60 in 1927
    1998 - Mark McGwire hits 70 homers and Sammy Sosa hits 66
    2001 - Barry Bonds hits 73 homers

    Your thoughts?

    I think they should cut open McGuire's and Bonds' balls and take a closer look.
