He's right on. These two points really get at the crux of the entire issue, and he nails them.

The two Chronicle reporters, as I have previously noted, should be ashamed -- accepting secret grand jury excerpts from a self-serving source (a lawyer) trying to divert attention from his client, and never developing a single, on-the-record source or document to support their explosive allegations.

Therefore, it is entirely consistent for me to denounce those who would use the judicial system, not to attain true justice, but to persecute what one of the greatest playwrights of all time, Henrik Ibsen, called the "Enemies of the People."

The irony here is that Barry Bonds is not an enemy of the people, and the people themselves -- baseball fans -- know it. He is an enemy of the establishment.

I hope you are joking. He played in for 9 years in ATL and 2 years in MIL to finish his career. :-°

Hey....the writer said it...I didn't. Aaron ended his storied career in Milwaukee...not Atlanta.

Please tell me that you are not this dense. He did played in ATL at the end of his career.

Dense? Are we talking about the same Aaron? I personally am talking about Hank Aaron. Do you really think Aaron finished his career in Atlanta?

Your arguement is confusing me here.

"White Man's Theory"?

I have a theory too. It's called Black Man's Theory. It refers to the tendency of some Americans (black and white) to assume the existence of a conspiracy perpetrated by the white establishment, in an attempt (conscious or otherwise) to shift the guilt when a black man does something wrong. Sorry if that's offensive; just trying to respond honestly to this guy's post.

My position on Bonds, for the record: don't like him, probably cheated, belongs in the Hall anyway.

As author of the blog defending Bonds posted here -- my bad! -- for saying Aaron finished his career in Atlanta. Of course I know he played back in Milwaukee at the very end, I think during that weird period when it was an AL franchise. I was too caught up in the standing ovation Bonds got from Atlanta's fans, obviously, to check my facts. Sorry!

I don't believe anyone here is saying he finished his career in Atlanta, just that he played there at the end of his career, if you consider how long his career was, Atlanta would definitely be considered at the end, just not at the finish.
