    Bonds hit 57 home runs against the Reds and we want them back...

    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.
    From what I've read, he wasn't much of either. He had a longtime mistress whom he threatened and abused repeatedly.

    I hope these author's evidence withstands scrutiny so we can put his denials where they belong. I wonder how they can write a book based on grand jury evidence. I thought it was a federal offense to leak grand jury testimony/evidence.

    I absolutely can not wait to hear Harold Reynolds and the rest of the boys at ESPIN go to work on this one.

    Bond's makes me sick but the ESPIN hacks make me want to go to Conn and do bodily harm.

    The sources are pretty extraordinary. According to SI, this article was a result of a very exhaustive two-year investigation, and the material used came from, among other things, transcripts, sealed testimony, a secretly recorded conversation with Bonds's trainer, Greg Anderson, and memos and evidence lists obtained from BALCO.

    I think this may be, at long last, the proverbial feces on the fan. This is not a case of a brief semi-star like Jason Giambi or a case of shaky evidence as it is (at present) with regards to McGuire. This is probably the single most famous baseball player currently in the sport, a huge personality and the guy who holds the single-season home run record. The steroid thing has really been snowballing the last couple of years and I think this is going to blow it up. I think it's going to be huge.

    I almost feel sorry for him, this being his last season and all, but I can't really. Not much sympathy for someone who would so knowingly and adamantly do that to himself.

    But he points to the sky after a home run. Say it isn't so

    Bonds may not get it yet, but I don't think he's going to be playing major league baseball this year. This very well could be it for him.

    on what basis? Barry and his good dose of paranoia will keep him playing until he breaks Aarons record.

    I don't know that it will be his choice.
