Day of Shame for Baseball

Why do they continue to let this cheater make an assault on Hank Aaron's record? Everyone knows that once all the info comes out in the steroid scandal, Bonds is going to be stripped of any "honors" he accumulates over the entire run for the record.

Or at least, that's what any purist hopes will happen.

First of all, baseball is not a sport, it’s a skill. Any so called sport where your heart rate is not over 150 beat per min sustained for at least 5 minutes is NOT A REAL sport. These baseball bitches cry and moan for more money when all they do is moan, chew sunflower seeds, and scratch their nuts. Other so called “sports” include: curling, golf, bowling, sailing, and archery.

Barry Bonds is a total softball/cheater with a rest of the other CLEAR drinking A-holes. My head size grew over an inch and an half while in my late 20’s and it’s legit. Would you like some kool aide?

Even college sports are bastardized with money now days. No one plays for the love of the game dammit.

Bonds is a true piece of garbage who hopefully will go to jail. He is nowhere near the player that Ruth was. Remember that Ruth was a starting pitcher and a damn good one for the first three years of his career. When Bonds does that, then he can say he is as good as Ruth. I also wonder why the the media keeps ignoring his racism. Bet it wouldn't be that way if he were white.

Off subject. New police test in November. They just gave one in August! A relative in Personnel tells me the city is not real happy with the results of the August test. City spent a lot of money recruiting applicants at City Colleges, south side churchs, south side high schools, west side churchs, west side high schools, black colleges across the country, and even churchs in the Gary, Indiana area. After the test were scored the city did not get the results they wanted after all that effort. Know what I mean. Talk in Personnel is that the November test will be merged with the August test and will be pass/fail. No "Well qualified" etc. Then it will be a "randon" drawing of those who passed. God help us.

They need drug testing in baseball. 3x a season to cover the bases, so to speak. No excuses. Those guys make a lot of money. Also off-post, the score of this Sundays BEAR game will be BEARS 28 and the VIKINGS 14. The sergeants test results( first part ) will be announce the first week of October.

Is this ivestigation of baseball and its steroid use really that important that the government had to get involved, I don't think so.

Baseball is it's own PRIVATE coroporation and matters relating to baseball should be handled by baseball.

If a coroporation that dealt with the public and during that dealing with the public, persons was deceived and/or lost money by being swindled, I could see the government stepping in but I don't know of any fan who directly lost or was swindled out of money because of this "scandal"

I personally don't care if Bonds goes to jail because the whole situation was an baseball issue to begin with until some members of Congress decided baseball could not manage itself and butted in their business.

The government has other issues to tackle and should leave this one to be handled by the people who control the game.

I propose that the Chicago Department of Personnel/Human Resources consider 100 meter dash times as a 75% weight factor in both the police hiring and promotional processes.

The remaining 25% criterion would be based solely on "merit"(*).

Yell and scream about baseball and the players salaries, steroid usage and illegal drugs. But, when the White sox's were winning and appear to be going to another play off, all was well with the sports as you stumble off your favorite bar stool on western Ave.
Barry Bonds singlehandily and all by his self is not responsible for all the ills of MLB (Mexican League Baseball)....hell RUTH who salary in 1930 wa an unheard of $80,000.00 is equivalnet to:
In 2005, $80,000.00 from 1930 is worth:
$934,400.00 using the Consumer Price Index
$782,237.64 using the GDP deflator
$2,966,037.74 using the unskilled wage
$4,543,032.46 using the nominal GDP per capita
$10,926,140.35 using the relative share of GDP
so actual he was in par with today's players and standard of pay
Wonder what the masses of unemployed people thought about him being over paided while their families were literally starving to death after the great fall of wall street. Now at the time alcohol was considered an illegal substances, but that didn't stop the bambino or his throngs of admirers...........as far as racism, let's see exactly how many Blacks were playing baseball in the major league in the 1930's? oh well, I guess that answer that!!!
Remember when H. AARon was approaching RUTH records, the man got death threats and tons of hate mail. Now Bond is not most people favorite player, hell I don't even like him.....but until some one proves and he is found guilty by some governing body...."GET OVER IT"! Hell, remember when the City was trying to get OFFICERS to donate a days work for the benefit of the city........I bet you were right up front volunteering your services.....for the love of the CITY!!!!! right!

Did you see the article in today's paper about the CPD lieutenant's dog that got euthanized by Animal Care and Control, then they apparently hid the records? The article talks about missing veterinary drugs and records, but there's clearly a lot left out of the story.

Maybe we'll hear more in the next couple of days.

GENERAL STRIKE!

Chicago, IL
2006-10-05
All Day and Into the Night
The Loop
12 NOON- GRANT PARK (Jackson and Columbus - permit pending)

4:30PM- FEDERAL PLAZA (Jackson and Dearborn)

INTO THE NIGHT: GRANT PARK (Jackson and Columbus-permit pending)

DESCRIPTION:

All day and into the night, people will flood downtown Chicago making
our determination to drive out this criminal regime known to the world!
Nothing about this day will be just your "go through the motions- rally
and march" protest-as-usual! Early in the day, students will walk out
of
school- even shut down whole campuses, people will refuse to go to work
and bring their entire families, and converge with thousands in the
heart of downtown at GRANT PARK. Here we begin a festival of resistance
with fiery indictments of the most dangerous force in history, the Bush
regime, from voices of conscience from all walks of life.

Then we will step off together and spread this movement throughout the
Loop, our collective voices reverberating off the surrounding buildings
and rising up to the sky! Hundreds of thousands of people downtown will
be wondering what will happen that day and as our voices fill the air,
they will rush to the windows and see that WE ARE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN
WAITING FOR; WE ARE TRULY MAKING RESISTANCE IRRESISTIBLE! We'll be
spreading the word to many more - distributing literature and materials
that will make their way into workplaces, shopping centers, and
restaurants; calling on everyone to join us after work as we make known
our aim to drive out this regime throughout downtown Chicago including
right at the Federal Building!

Many thousands more will join us here and will continue with us as we
step off and back to Grant Park where we will continue the festival
with
musical and theatrical performances, and the biggest and baddest
open-mic you've ever seen in your life! And all the way into the night,
we'll be strategizing on where to go from here to fulfill our real aim
of DRIVING OUT THE BUSH REGIME!

What a tragedy. We are still here and talk about baseball. An article appreared in the Chicago Sun-Times on Sat. on page 14 titled, "Real scandal is state's inability to pay bills." The FOP endorsed Blago with nothing said by SCC. Another article appeared in the Sat. At the Tues. FOP meeting Donahue refused to have a hand vote as to whether SGTS. should be on the FOP Board of Directors. Donahue did not allow a hand vote on whether RETIREES SHOULD PAY DUES. The real question never was retirees paying dues - but retirees should not be kicked out of the union if they failed to pay dues. Please say something SCC.

Since we're talking tests here-any word on those who took the test for CPD in January? What happened to those results? Heard they were supposedly "lost"-is this true? If so were the people who took that test notified that their test results dissapeared and they needed to take it again? ...or are we just concentrating on west-side/south-side applicants as stated by 01:05:30...???

Yeah, combing the southside and westside to find less-than qualified applicants is a great idea! Soon the college/military requirement will be out the window.

Anything for diversity, huh?

Here's an idea, if you want more black officers, look into the military. I think you might find some more qualified candidates than on the westSIDE!!

In our opinion, the McGuire and Sosa era's should be struck from the books. That's kind of impractical though. Asterisks? Kind of hokey and a reminder of the shameful way Baseball treated Maris after 61 homers. Trouble is that Baseball as an institution didn't want to look inward at the problems they were having for so long. And now the game is less than it ever has been. A sad state of affairs regardles of how you look at it.

LAST JANUARY'S CPD TEST: The company that administered and corrected the test managed to "lose" almost half of the test results. And the results that they didn't "lose" did not turn out as the city wanted, racially speaking, so now, no one knows what to do.
Above all else the city wants to avoid hiring the most qualified if they are not Politically Correct.

This company has proved itself so totally inept, they are a cinch to land the contract for all future CPD tests.

Applicants that took the CPD test in January 2006 have yet to be informed of any test results.
Anyone surpirzed here?
Rumor has it that some of the applicants that took the test on computers were shorted 25 questions and later called and asked to come back and take the additional questions. I know one kid that was away at school and could not come back to make up the 2 questions.
How can the City of Clout score any exams before scoring that first one.
Can anyone say Class Action.

to 12:01:47pm: And just how did drinking alcohol enhance Babe Ruth's performance? If anything, it probably made him a worse player. Seems to me you are missing the point, or you are purposely trying to avoid it.

Yeah 12:01:47 is avoiding the subject. Some of the best baseball players of all time played in the old negro leagues (Josh Gibson, Buck Weaver, Double Duty Radcliffe, et. al, plus who knows how many wins Satchel Paige would have had if he had been able to pitch in the major leagues as a young man. What happened to those ball players was wrong and should have never happened. But that doesn't change the fact that Bonds is a racist jerk. Just ask Ron Kittle, who asked Bonds to sign a baseball to be auctioned at a charity event for cancer research. Bonds replied "I don't sign for white people." Real nice Barry. Also his comments that he wanted to beat Ruth but would stop short of Aaron (who is also a much better player and human being than Bonds ever will be). When Jimmy the Greek and Al Campanis made their ignorant statements they were villified and their careers were over, and rightfully so. Why the double standard for Bonds? Plus I neither drink nor hang around Western Ave.

If Bonds is a steroid abuser like the media and other people claim why hasn't he been banned from baseball? Doesn't the leauge have a drug testing policy? Obviously Bonds hasn't tested positive for any banned substances. And last I looked he's still tearing the cover off the ball. I'm no Barry Bonds fan,but to me he's been tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. Could Bonds have abused steroids? Maybe. But that could be said about the majority of MLB. I think alot of this animosity is because of his present standing in the record books.IN FRONT OF G.H.RUTH. Not because he's a a**hole in general. The bigwigs in MLB know if they try to condemn Bonds it will have a snowball effect. It might start with Barry,but you can damn well believe it won't end with him. This fish stinks from the head up. This didn't start with Bonds. He's just everyone's "whipping boy" for the moment. And for congress to get involved in this fiasco is laughable. With terrorism running rampant all over the globe,nuclear proliferation by third world countries,unemployment and poverty growing within our borders and illegal drugs being trucked in by the tons,they're concerned with drug abuse by a bunch of millionaires? Give me a break! All that stunt was designed to do was deflect public opinion from the crappy job they're doing.

Okay I want to spout off on a few points raised here:

1. As much as I cannot stand Bubblehead Bonds, Sammy So So, and Mark McAndro they were not doing anything that was against the CBA. Steroids and speed were not tested for until 2002. Illegal to possess yes, morally wrong, absolutely. Prohibited by MLB, no. The fact that the league and owners turned a blind eye on to what was going on in the clubhouses, just shows integrity takes a back seat to the almighty dollar.

2. KK hope your fillies make the playoffs. Coming from a fan of the norf side, but a realistic basball fan, I don't see any team in the NL who has a realistic shot.

3. The guy who stated baseball is not a sport, according to your criteria, sychronized swimming, clusterf*cks and circle jerks would be all right in your book.

4. Oh yeah, Da Bears...

alcohol was made illegal because it destroyed lives and encouraged crime, not because it made users stronger. The bambino did not get an unfair advantage using it. Bonds is using steroids to enhance his performance, PERIOD. 12:01:47pm likes to cloud the issue with all those salary figures,we all know what time it is. As far as I'm concerned, Bonds, Mc Guire,and Sosa's stats. will always be illegtimate.
