He is the ONLY 500 Home Run and 500 Stolen Bases guy EVER.
And he accomplished that without the help of the Roids.
It's quite amazing to me, that a player like Bonds, who has everything, feels the need to cheat to be that much better.
At the memorial service of one Dr. Silverthorne, many years ago, Jonathan Winters, said:
"A man who has friends, good friends, has everything. A man who has no friends, has nothing."
Bonds has no friends and to me, the man has nothing.
He did not have everything when he went the high-tech PED route. He didn't have the fame and adulation that Sosa and McGwire had, and that pissed him off-- because he knew or suspected that both of them were on PEDs.
Bonds is a hell of a player. At a minimum, he would have hit 40 a year every year he was on PED. That's tremendous, given the other tools he had as a player.
For the record, though, I think that Rose should be in the HOF, too.
