At some point this summer, Barry Bonds' bat will make its quick, slashing arc, and a baseball will sail over the walls of Pac Bell Park; perhaps into the seats, maybe into San Francisco Bay.

I think Barry should have come clean on the whole steriod issue instead of hiding and denying it happened. The whole HR Record will be tainted and Barry will always have steriods hanging over his head no matter when he breaks the record!

Why should Bonds "come clean?"

Why doesn't baseball do us all a favor and do what you want Bonds to do?

The commissioner could get up in a press conference and admit that BEFORE Bonds was ever implicated, many players were using steroids, and because of it, power numbers were bringing the game back from lack of interest.

Owners knew of use, managers knew of use, and if they knew of it, then Baseball knew too! You see for the commissioner to be able to contend that they had no knowledge of rampant use at the Major League level is one of the most blatent lies ever perpetrated on the American sporting public.

By not admiting to that, they sanctioned it due to their inaction. This is bigger than Barry Bonds, and bigger than the record he's chasing. Baseball wants to use a few players connected to an investigation they had NOTHING to do with as scapegoats in a PR nightmare that went badly wrong.

Baseball made a lot of money on Camminitti, McGwyre, Sosa, Bonds, Dykstra, Canseco, and who knows how many other players who MIGHT have been on the stuff.

THEY HAD NO POLICY.

If they had no policy, they have reason to go after people now. To care about it now, when they did not care about it when those players were saving a dying game is just plain hypocritical, and cheap.

Selig needs to be investigated by Congress to find out what HE knew. This is classic mis-direction by an organization that was flying under the radar until the US Federal Court brought light to the subject of steroid use in Major League Baseball, and like the guy who gets caught weaving all over the road, with booze on his breath, is denying he ever took a drink.

Baseball is guilty, and all Bonds is doing is saying that until Baseball comes clean, he has no reason to.

If he IS guilty. Two wrongs do not make a right.

I think he is tarnished. Don't forget Bonds said it was a racial issue on the criticism of him. What a jerk and a joke.

So because Bonds is a Jerk, that absolves Baseball from being wrong??? You see that is why he's a target! He is the perfect scapegoat for Baseball to run their game on. America already hates him, so who better to attack?

America is getting played. Whether we realize it or not this is not about Barry Bonds alone. This is about every player in this era suspected (rightfully or wrongly) for use of roids. If Bonds is dragged thru the mud and Baseball looks like they are still pure because their sacred record is broken, then they have won. We crusify Bonds and Baseball becomes a sympethic victim.

It's BullS%#t.
