BASEBALL: Walks and Power

Via David Pinto, we caught up with Brian Gunn's look at Barry Bonds' 2001 power surge in the context of the steroids/HGH flap (which remains basically unproven at this point). The interesting part: Bonds' tremendous leap forward in walks in 2001 didn't start until after his home run rate took off.

(Also note that the steep decline in Bonds' strikeout rate didn't come until 2002).
