    I guess details are coming....
    Why is it that it seems way too late and almost un-newsorthy? I expect his career will now be finally laid to rest and we can get on with real baseball sometime in the next few years.

    His fans will say he's being picked upon and that he was the greatest hitter in baseball history. Bunk.

    Whether the steriods helped him or not, his career should be done, but watch someone sign him.

    I'm not really one of his "fans" but he is being picked on and he is the greatest hitter in baseball history.

    Better late than never.

    I wonder if the timing of this happening before the release of the Mitchell report was intentional.

    What a disgrace. I hope that people don't feel that protecting Bonds from his own stupid and possibly illegal behavior is somehow protecting baseball. I have always felt that is what was behind those that always seem so anxious to sweep this garbage under the rug and forget about it.

    Baseball will be fine if this loser goes to prison. In fact, I am beginning to think it will be better off.

    Yes...and Marion Jones is the greatest female athlete in track history.

    We'll never know what an "unroided" Bonds would have done.

    What's sad is that he took a HoF career and turned it in to a mockery. Very ironic that his ego actually will lead people to appreciate his talents and accomplishments less.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Palmeiro didn't lie to a grand jury...just a Congressional sub-committee

    Yeah, no problems there. Just ask the tobacco company executives.
