Baseballs's Shame

No, we aren't talking about the Sox in last or the Cubs making waves. We're talking about this:
  • Hammerin' Hank, he's within one now. Barry Bonds hit his 754th career home run Friday night, and needed just one more to tie Hank Aaron's record. Bonds sent a 2-1 pitch from rookie Rick Vanden Hurk over the wall in left-center in the first inning for a solo shot against the Florida Marlins, his 20th homer of the season.

It's obvious to just about everyone that Bonds cheated for years. But they are still letting him make a run at the record and are planning all sorts of celebrations around it. Mark McGuire was denied a Hall of Fame shot recently and his numbers don't look to get any better because of the taint of steroids. Is Major League Baseball looking to let Bonds break the record then deny him a spot in the Hall?

What ever they decide, it still smells to high heaven and cheapens the game. Which is one more reason we stopped following baseball years ago.

A lame excuse for not watching baseball anymore. Baseball is by far the most entertaining sport that we have in this country. I don't care for Bonds either, but you still have to apprecaite the fact that even though he juiced he was possibly the greatest player of our generation. There was a lot of players that were taking roids and still haven't been able to come close to putting up the numbers that this guy has been able to. The only reason that he is everybody's target is because he is the best player and he is a jagoff.

Hey SCC if you're gonna cheat, the greatest record in all of sports is the way to go. I know guys who cheated for a hell of a lot less!

MLB has no legal ties to the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is a separate organization and can elect who they want. Pete Rose for example. Even though he is banned from baseball, he can still be elected to the Hall of Fame. Bonds is a sham and should be banned. This is the biggest scandel since the Black Sox and Selig should pull a Landis and ban Bonds/Mcguire/Sheffield/Palmiero and anyone else found to have the hint of steroids. They ruined 15-20 years of the game. Go Sox.

Baseball is the most entertaining sport? Are you on crack?? Baseball is like watching paint dry. Try watching a hockey game. All action all the time. Mcquire, sosa, giambi and especially the biggest cheat of all bonds killed that sport. Look at his rookie card, he weighed 170 pnds. Now hes 240. Nobody gains that much muscle without help.

If "CHEATING" was to be enforced on the CPD, most of the gold stars would be pushing a beat car. A few would have been "psyched out" long ago.

It gets me when I hear that steroids were not illegal in baseball when Bonds took them. You also hear that there is no proof Bonds took steroids. Finally, they say that all the evidence against Bonds is in illegally leaked Grand Jury documents.

First, the use of striods without a perscription was and is illegal, period. Just becasue Baseball turned a blind eye and didn't test doesn't make its use legal.

Second, Bonds admitted to usng steriods. He admitted to using steriod creame.

Third, jsut becasue the court documents were leaked illegally, doesn't make them false.

The circumstancial evidence against Bonds and others is over whelming. Plus, Bonds is a big jerk, you don't think he and his laywers would sue the crap out of evryone for libael and slander for reporting he used steroids if he had a case.

Baseball doesn't want to know because it would be the biggest scandal since the Black Sox. Many believe That many records like Clemens who may believe still uses steriods , mvp's etc. would be questioned if the truth ever got out.

Hammerin Hank did it right by all indications and had to put up with all the racial B.S. and death threats to boot.

At least *Bonds won't have the record for long. Take heart, Alex Rodriguez will have it in a few years.

yeah, ban all the hitters, but what about the pitchers. just ignorance all around. include the fact that steroids were not against the rules in baseball until recently. that means he didn't cheat. he did break the law, but mlb doesn't enforce our laws now do they? maybe some cops would like it that way.

bonds was a hall of famer before he even took steroids.

I dont like him as much as the next guy, but as long as MLB counts every homerun, so will I. And I against steroids but as far as I am concerned, they dont help you hit a homerun let alone 754 of them.
He is an ass but we are about to see a record broken.

I stop following MLB years ago. Once upon a time it was the working man's relief and get away.
Something that some poor slob who worked his ass off in some factory or manual labor job could scoop up his kids and give them an outing.
Now you have to be a YUPPIE of the first order to have a family outing at any of the ball fields

It makes a world of difference that Bonds is "juiced." He would not be in position to overtake Aaron if he did'nt have an unfair advantage. Frank Thomas has 503 homeruns without steroids, he earned those homeruns through hard work.I think that is more of an accomplishment than Bonds passing Aaron. I think Thomas should be inducted into the Hall of Fame upon retirement. How much discipline does it take to swallow or inject a substance to make you bigger and stronger? Baseball is in danger of going the way of basketball and football, both have lost me because of their thuggish antics. Baseball needs players with integrity, who do the right thing, not the type who want to win at all costs.

Ken Griffey is a better ball palyer than Bonds, and would have had a legitimate shot at the home run record had it not been for injuries. Plus so far there has been no hint of the taint of steroids regarding Griffey. Watch A Rod. He has 499 career home runs at age 31 (he will be 32 within days) he should leave Bonds in the dust.

Regarding this:

One could argue, YOU STILL HAVE TO PUT THE BAT ON THE BALL!

Steroids doesn't help you do that! But steroids can keep you in the game and strong.

I say so what!

Just because if a man wants to take years OFF HIS LIFE by giving himself liver problems or whatever the inevitable consequences are of taking that SHIT, then knock your socks off and KNOCK it out of the yard too!

Its entertainment. The Sosa Mcgwire thing was a gas, a GOOD TIME for baseball and the fans. Remember the crowds on Waveland fighting over the balls!

What the hell! Take steroids if you want and tryout for a team. Of course there will be an * by their nnames they got to live with it.

What was Hammerin Hank on? Maybe he drank before everygame to get the edge off or smoked pot or snorted cocaine. WE WILL NEVER KNOW!

Caffeine is a drug its just legal but was Hank on that to keep him going?

Ask any athlete YOU STILL HAVE TO PUT THE BAT ON THE BALL!

The thing that is not being mentione dabout Bonds, and others (Palmero, Sosa, McGuire, Giambi, Brady Anderson - remeber him, one year wonder)is that this guys also used HGH.

Some have mentioned that the steroids used in baseball does not help you hit the ball, and that is a good and true argument. What the roids were doing was keeping these guys fresh throughout the entire season and allowing them to recover. True, they got bigger and stronger as well and in almost any sport that will help, but in baseball, the daily grind takes its toll on your body. This is how the steroids helped these guys chear and gain an unfair competative advantage.

By taking HGH, this does help you with baseball and that is a fact. HGH slows down your aging process and it can help improve your eyesight. So, these guys already were able to put the bat on the ball, and now there eyesight improved, as they got older mind you, and they gained a HUGE advantage. Better eyesight, when you already have major league caliber hand eye cordination, would make any player better. Combine that with a new found strength and the ability to stay fresh for all 162 games in the season and you see can see why Bonds, IMO, is a big piece of shit.

Cany you say asterisk??

If Hammering Hank drank before every game, I dont think that would have gave him an unfair advantage, it would have done the opposite since we know alcohol is a depressant. Just imagine how many more homers Babe Ruth would have hit if he didnt drink. He was probably hungover/drunk for a few of his at bats.
