    Cascade events make that an across the board problem.

    Did they take away Norm Cash's batting title yet?

    MLB and the players were certainly complicit in allowing the stuff to go on. They liked all the publicity that Bonds, McGwire and Sosa were generating.

    Special circumstances make for special decisions. Bud should get some guts and not force MLB into another black eye summer. It will be beyond embarrasing watching MLB pansyfoot around this issue.

    How sad is it when possibly the greatest statistic in your sport HAS to be belittled by the league?
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Bud will have to put out an APB to locate his spine before he could do something like that.

    Never really given the subject much thought but my knee jerk reaction is that this ranks right up there with Petey so ban him from the hall also.

    Another interesting aspect is his testimony at the Balco trial. If the Feds can ever prove he perjured himself then Bonds will go to jail for a long time. The Feds do not like to be lied to.

    Bonds does have his budding career as a transvestite going for him.

    Wow, I never suspected Bonds took steroids.

    I bet Bonds will get mad he didn't write a book first and make money on the story himself.

    The question of whether or not to ban Bonds is one issue; the question of whether or not Hall of Fame voters should vote for Bonds when he becomes eligible for induction is another issue. On the latter question, my answer is clear: If I was a HOF voter, Barry Bonds (and Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro for that matter) would never receive my vote for induction.

    Looks like these authors have piles of real evidence instead of the usual "well, his arms are big" hearsay.

    Good. Now go get McGwire and Sosa, too.

    I think you're exactly right. That was a major beef with the writers when the HOF changed the rules about the writers not being able to vote for guys on the ineligible list. They felt it was their call to decide who should or shouldn't be on the ballot. If they want to vote Pete Rose or Barry Bonds or Juan Castro in, it shouldn't be that big of a deal. It's not like Bonds is going to be standing in front of his plaque every time the museum is open shooting himself up with Winstrol.

    Absent from this discussion is any comments on how sad this whole ordeal is. The type of regimen the book describes Bonds as undertaking is the type of thing that has you dead of a heart attack by 50. Ultimately, this is an unblieveably selfish act on Bonds' part, because he likely will end up depriving his children of a father and his wife of a husband.

    It's just a sad, pathetic thing to see.

    I know I'm out on a limb here, but I predict there will be a lot of talk about this.
