I read the Verducci article and this quote speaks volumes:
Asked why, Bonds replied, "As a left-handed hitter, I wiped him out. That's it. And in the baseball world, Babe Ruth is everything, right? I got his slugging percentage, his on-base percentage, his walks and I'll take his home runs. That's it. Don't talk about him no more. ... I'm the next generation of the Negro leagues. Hank Aaron can have those 755 home runs.''
Someone can say that Bonds is racially motivated based on this quote. You can feel free to delete this because it is 'stupid" or you can look at the whole picture Mookie. A big part of the Barry Bonds story is the racism. The racism directed at him and the racism he directs at others. How much he gives to the United way is just great, but I give money every week to the United Way i don't see it being reported on ESPN either.
Give Snakes his due!!!! Snakes deserves the fantasy expert icon!!! Go Snakes!!!!
