"Bonds is like the Ty Cobb of his era and I respect him because he is one of the best to ever play the game."
you questionably put bonds in cobb's company, and i'm not sure what you intend to illustrate in doing so. though one of the best ever, cobb was a racist, firstly, and a violent one, at that. he was an extremely dirty player, routinely sharpening the spikes on his cleats so as to cut and maim opposing players attempting to tag him out stealing a base. both of his wives divorced him, citing the same complaint, "extreme cruelty". he disowned his son.
something to ponder as you classify the two together.
one last remark: if he would remove that astronaut's suit from his elbow, i would have no problem with him standing on home plate.
