bond owns baseball, he can say whatever he wants. He doesnt give a shit about what the media thinks, the fans, etc. And frankly, why should he? He doesnt trust the stupid masses and i never did either.

Regardless, he shouldn't present himself as an ass or no matter what he does on the field, to me at least, he'll never be thought of as high as the Babe, Hank or Willie.

I hope they badger this guy with questions every day of the year so he gets sick of it and retires before he can break the homerun record. I know that will not happen but I can still hope... ;-7

Sumthin ain't stirrin the kool aid. The man is a lifetime .298 hitter. He never had more than 50 home runs till 2001 when he belts 73!!!!?? True, he had been a great hitter but comon???!!! Something gave this guy the jolt. There is noooo way he hasn't taken 'roids.

He doesn't want to be thought of as a nice guy, role model, etc. That doesn't mean he isn't a good guy. That doesn't mean he's a primadonna. If you were the best player in baseball, wouldn't you want a Laz-Z-Boy in the locker room? Wouldn't you want a ton of cash? He doesn't want you to feel bad for him. But a little respect for one of the best hitters in baseball history would be nice.

He's cocky, and he can be, because he's the best. If you take everythign he says seriously, that's your problem.

He gets dogged about roids because he is such an A-hole to everyone that it makes everybody want to see him fall.

Plain and simple. He is a grade-A jag. If I could change the course of history I would give his skills and talents to just about anybody in baseball other than him.

I would like to step in the pile of shit known as Barry Bonds. He symbolizes everything wrong with baseball.

In the week leading up to the SF/NYM series the NY media had nothing but good stuff to say about Bonds. There was general excitement and promotion because Bonds was coming to town. Hell, even Donald Trump brought tickets to the Mets game to see Bonds play. He wasn't put down, doubted or subjected to steroids questions and of course those remarks were the best he could come up with.

To the Bonds-supporters who decide to view the situation through rose-colored glasses I say more power to you. I didn't post the quotes to win you over to my side but I also wasn't expecting the inane defense of his remarks either. Sure Bonds can say whatever he wants and he does. Maybe Bonds puts up with so much hate and abuse that he can't help but strike out.

And maybe, just maybe, one day Bonds will rise above and show a touch of class.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
