Why don't they start with Rafael Palmeiro then. Shouldn't there be a perjury case against him?

Or Gary Sheffield? He said the same exact thing that Bonds did, in the same court.

But nah, you guys don't care about that. Only Bonds, because Bonds happens to be better than everyone.

Bonds is 2nd in walks, he would be first in OBP if he had enough at bats to qualify, 8th in OPS if he had enough at bats. Not bad numbers, but definitely not the Bonds numbers we have got accustomed over the year.

You're right, Kent. Let's not focus on social issues like education and the enviroment, or the highway system, healthcare, social security, civil rights, or defense issues like terrorism.

Instead, let's focus on Bonds ;-D ;-7

its all about what you can prove.

they had an inquiry on the palmeiro matter. they dont have proof he did roids before the congressional meeting, only that he did roids afterwards.

sort of the same story for sheff. they cant prove sheff knew it was roids. sheff says he was told by bonds/balco that it was legal.

there is not evidence for a case against either of them. the feds think they have enough evidence against bonds, but apparently they cant make anderson talk.

The apparently don't have enough evidence against Bonds, or he would have been indicted by now, right?

Exactly. If we let Bonds free, the terrorists win. ;-D

(And poor old Harmon loses.)

Bonds is first in the entire major leagues in OBP...how much more can we expect from him. The fact is he is having a great year....a year better than just about every other player in the majors today. Ok not as great as he had in other years...but nonetheless he gets on base better than anyone in either league who plays today.

His OPS (OBP + SLG) is 8th...so by that Stat there are 7 players in baseball better than Barry.

He may not be as good as he used to be...but he is still one of the very best players in baseball.

What about the fact that he has missed like 20% of his team's games?? His season isn't as bad as the numbers look like at first glance but this has hardly been a great year by him to date.

Barry has played in 79 games...Pujols has played in 80.
One fewer....we look for reasons to put down Barry Bonds...even if they dont exist.

He is more fragile than he used to be...but he is still the best player on his team and one of the best in the majors.

Would I sign him to a 10 year contract...no...but who would I want right now in an important game....not many more than Barry.
