Should it be marked as *754 or S754?

Just an idea I had...I call it “Turn Your Back On Bonds”.

All those who don’t believe Roid Boy Bonds will be legitimately crowned the home run king should stand up and turn their backs to him every time he comes to bat-an ultimate sign of disrespect, and you won’t have to see #756.

Thoughts?

Who cares. Put them all on steroids. Who wants to watch a bunch of avg. schmucks play a game anyway?

Make them all freakishly huge and maybe baseball will become just slightly more interesting than watching a snail race.

There is probably a lot more of this going on in every sport. Barry is just high profile example. Many sports accomplishments are probably tainted, we just don’t know it. Reguardless, Barry is a talented player.

I think Bonds could have made to the HOF without taking steroids. He doesn't belong in the HOF. Period.

You are right. Steroids don’t make avg. guys hit home runs. If so, Arnold and the guys in the pic above would all be on teams, earning millions, slamming them out of the park. Stupid debate, based on incredible naivete actually.

This is the one where Barney has to tell two roadside vendors selling fruit and veggies off of a truck to beat it.

The two lawbreakers don't find Barney very persuasive.

Andy just went and told them to scram and also told them a tale about ol' Fearsome Fife

.......I can't wait to see what happens next!

I have wondered how many pitchers were on steroids that struck Bonds out, or caused him to ground out or how many homers he would have if he hadn’t been intentionally walked almost 700 times. This is not a defense of the accusations just thoughts to fuel the fire so.... FLAME AWAY.

Well, Zito gave up the 1 out double in the 1st to Uggla, so he’s still struggling a bit. Right now, this is an old, lackluster team that doesn’t hit consistently in the clutch, and is a shadow of it’s former self defensively. Every time I see Ray Durham, for example, run toward a pop fly in right center, and he misses the catch, I cringe.

I’d like to see this team start from scratch, but we have to keep attendance numbers up because the new stadium was privately financed. As for Bonds, I really don’t care now. I think he hurts this team more than he helps it at this point his career.

Barry is a talented player.

You're probably right, in the hand-eye hitting coordination department.

What bothers me about these "nepotism" (Barry being the son of Bobby) athletes (especially common in NASCAR which is an example although the drivers are far from being athletes), is how the sons-of-the-fathers manage to miraculously have the doors opened for them.

I tend to categorize these guys as "Dino, Dezi and Billy" kids.

Andy's clever ruse worked!

Barney showed back up where the two farmers were and they high-tailed it out of there as soon as Barney started doing his usual antics, as Andy had led them to believe that these were all signs that Barney was about to go off.

Unfortunately, the two farmers stopped at the gas station where Floyd the barber was and the two farmers started talking about Fearless Fife which just cracked Floyd and the gang up...........

If they're all on steroids then they will again all be average.

I would agree with the nepotisim, the pitching coach for the cardinals has two sons in mlb one on the Yankees and one on his team, Prince Fielder is another one and the Boone boys and on and on.

..so now, after Floyd and the gang made it clear that ol' Barney was anything but Fearless, the set up shop again on the side of the road.

Barney had to go out confront the two farmers and finally act with the strength and courage we all knew he had.

The two farmers left once and for all and Barney, once again, is the hero!

I'm not on steroids. Are you? I get your point though. So then let's make half of the players take steroids by running each of them through some cycles pre-season. The steroid recipients shall be determined by random lottery.

I say that jokingly of course, but you know what? If they actually did that, I bet star players vs. avg. players each season would be randomly distributed between the users and non-users.

Another alternative would be have two separate leagues. A steroid league and a non steroid league. The bases for the steroid league would be 120 feet apart. The pitchers mound would 90 feet from home plate. The outfield would be at least 500 feet from home plate.

Of course, Bonds was a star before he ever too steroids.... BUT, when he bulked up with steroids it definitely increased his power and homerun output considerably. He never was on track to approach Aaron’s record until he overnight started to look like Ah-nold.

Greater strength does not give you the magnificent eye-hand coordination to hit baseballs solidly and a long way, especially against major league pitching. BUT, if you already have that fine coordination, as Bonds did, then unnatural strength can enable you to hit a lot more home runs - and that’s just what happened with Bonds and some others.

The only good thing I can say about Barry Bonds is that he’s not a Yankee. That would make him the spawn of satan...

Like this guy deep in thought?

You actually just won me $5. I bet my girlfriend some boring stat geek would come along and say something along these lines right after I tossed the bait.

If you are one of the data junky geeks instead of the facepaint animals, I would simply say: Baseball is for the thinking man with nothing worthwhile to think about.

I was struck by his arrogance and disgust each time he was walked. They were throwing to him. They weren’t intentionally walking him like they did McGwire a few years back when no one wanted to be “the one” who gave up the historic homerun. On each of his walks last night, there were called strikes AND he even swung at a few. He even got down 0-2 one one of his last at bats. But his flip of the bat, ripping off of the arm cover, and disgusted look on his face showed that he feels he is owed this record. It’s gonna happen. I don’t want it to happen. I wish it were just over with so he’d be out of the limelight again.

I’m tired of watching cheaters win...Bonds, McGwire, whoever, they’re all roided up and I couldn’t care less about baseball. However, I do think that whoever catches that record breaking ball should exact some payback on MLB for the fans. If they want that ball...make them pay for it...big time...like for millions. MLB doesn’t get a wit about its fans...they’ll cancel the league when they argue about contracts and the fans pay the price. MLB is all about the money and so should that record breaking ball.

AROD will hit 500 soon if he averages 35 to 40 HR’s for the next 7 or 8 years he will break Bonds record assuming Bonds retires at end of this season like I think he will.
