Barry Bonds

This guy probably does the best job expressing something close to how I feel about the whole Barry Bonds situation. My biggest beef has always been, why, Barry, why? Bonds was a great player, an MVP, in fact, before he started juicin'. And he was also a multi-millionaire. Story is that he was jealous of Sosa and MaGuire and all the attention they were getting. Apparently, he was too dumb to realize he was a far better ballplayer than either one of them - and that being a better player always wins out in the end over shortcuts. He was really fun to watch with the Pirates. Despite his painful playoff performances, I was always cheering for him becuase I got the impression, he was pressing, and trying too hard. Yeah, he may have always been a dickhead off the field, but I didn't know him off the field. On the diamond, he played a beautiful game. Sad now that he has become this cariciture, this joke, and probably cut 10 years off his life in the process.

It really is sad about Barry. He will be known as Mister Asterisk.

They can't give him an asterisk yet, because they haven't proven anything. If they give him one, they need to give Big Mac and Sosa them as well - and how about Doc Ellis who reportedly pitched a no-hitter on acid or something...
