Bonds had incredible hand-eye coordination long before he took any PEDs. I've never heard anyone state that PEDs enhance hand-eye coordination. If Bonds had never taken a PED his career would have ended sooner, but he would have been in the HOF, as he was already one of the greatest players ever. Ask any seamhead. They may hate him, as he was a total dick, but no one ever questioned his natural abilities.
