Let him have his record - but what good does it do a man, at the end of his days, to have some numeral next to his name if he had to sacrifice his integrity and character to do so.

He sacrificed his integrity in your eyes. What if I said that Aaron sacrificed his integrity by using greenies to help him play? That certainly isn't 'all natural'. What if I said Ruth sacrificed his integrity because he used corked or trick bats? Again, Bonds is being made out to be the bad guy. You don't have to like him, but let's not make him out to be worse than he is. He's simply a player who sought an advantage, no different than most of the greats.

I have read a lot of things in this this thread I didn't agree with, and sometimes downright hated.

The last thing I thought I would read is a statement like that. :-t

You are right, I heard Bonds is a Satan worshipper

Wait, you DIDN'T know he was a Satan worshipper? Jeeze, where have you been...Bonds is worse than that. Satan actually kneels to Bonds. Bonds is actually one of the leaders of the Westboro Baptist Church (for those that do not know what that is, i implore you to Wikipedia it). That's how bad he is. :-t

He really goes out of his way to be nice to people. Conducts great interviews, works for charities, really an all around stand up guy. He would never do anything to hurt the MLB, and he’s such a devout christen!

Devout Christian=good people? As somebody who lives in Kansas and heard numerous horror stories about the Westboro Baptist Church, I'd disagree not just a little bit.

Somebody needs to start acting like a poster and quit acting like Mini Mod Me. :-°


Good point. This thread is still very useful as a countdown to to 757 and so on! ;-7


You may not want to sit down and get comfortable. Your stay here may not be all that long if you're going to target the Mods like that. ;-7
