Perhaps Gonzo's former teammate, Jason Grimsley, can shed some light on this one. When Gonzalez first started out with the Astros, he didn't hit for a lot of power, similar to a teammate of his back then, Ken Caminiti. Then, he became a Cub in the late '90's and went on a home run hitting spree. The same thing happened when Caminiti went to the Padres.

Yeah but he could still be taking HGH, since it's not even being tested for. Gonzales is just getting old. He's aging like ballplayers used to before the steroid and HGH era. Like Babe Ruth did. He's 38 now, what was Bonds doing at 38? I'm not saying Gonzo didn't use the juice, he probably did. But his career doesn't really fit the mold. He started hitting HR's when he got out of the Astrodome and into better HR parks.
