Come on now, why woldn't you believe it was all flaxseed oil? Clinton did not inhale...he did not have relations with Ms. Lewinsky...what is the definition of the word "is"?...


...You mean you do not believe Balco Barry? Come on? He does not know what cheating is. It was someone elses fault...do not criticize me if you are not pure...."...let's talk anbout something else like alcohol and obfuscate...very Clintonesque. And all TOTAL BS.


DOes anyone really believe this guy is not guilty as sin? Please.

Umm... didn't pay attention in U.S. History, eh, Barry?


Unfortunate. We graduated from the same private high school. Looks like he may have wasted his money... :-o

Wow, is there any legitimate defense for what this guy said? This guy is a frigging joke, and theres no way around it. I hope he doesn't even pass the Babe. Would serve him right for talking so much trash about him.

Obviously I missed it but what was the point of this news conference? :-?

I can't wait to get my preseason tickets to the Giants/Rangers and sit in the front row in left field about 15 feet from this pathetic excuse for a human being.

Barry's going to hear my sentiments, whether he likes it or not.

;-D

Does he mean that he expects to have an asterick besides his name. Admission of guilt?

"go clean your own closet before you come after mine"

You can't call me guilty because you aren't pure. Admission of guilt?

"alcohol is long overdue that we should ban that"

Obviously the flaxseed oil is wearing on him. Admission of mental instability?

"I don't know what cheating is, I don't believe steroids will help you in baseball".


Even if I were to take steroids, they don't help me hit. Preemptive strike. Admission of guilt, and attempt to legitimize his stats?

Looks as if Steriod Bonds is reverting to his miserable self, I would expect that if he didn't already say he will no longer address the steroid issue, if he hasn't already. Then, unless the media starts kissing his elbow brace, he'll likely follow with the time tested classic, "I'm not talking to the press".

I really hope he passes Ruth at a road game, so he can get booed right off the field when it happens.

I think that fans should chant "As-ter-isk" rhthymically when he walks up to the plate. He's probably sort of impervious to that stuff but to go out blaming reporters and racism is ridiculous, in light of the nature of the stories floating around. That and, of course, the "San Francisco Outfielder". What a tool!!

However much I'd gripe about Sammy corking up, standing too far off the plate and the clubhouse antics, I would not criticize him personally for it as he seems like a jolly enough guy as long as you give him the 3 hole. The ONLY value Bonds appears to have is on the baseball field as he is consistently leading MLB, NFL and the NBA in arrogance/ game. While there have always been "dark stars" in sports, Bonds is clear and away the most arrogant of them all. Hands down. I have a lot of respect for his amazing performance at the plate but zero respect for the comical manifestation of himself as he appeared today, which is the way he invariably appears whenever he opens his yap.

He cannot retire too soon for me and I was never happier watching baseball than when Carlos Zambrano K'd his arrogant butt and did the obnoxious fist-pumping dance!!
