daydreams

April 23rd, 2007 by admin

There is one and only one thing Barry Bonds can do that will redeem him in the eyes of the public (and possibly win him acceptance to the hall of fame). The night after he hits homerun number 754 (one behind Hank Aaron), he announces his retirement, saying that he doesn’t want to pass the legend (or at least, doesn’t want to do it this way, limping to the record on reconstructed knees with a needle is his arm).

    You think Barry won’t get into the Hall? If they don’t let him in, what non-pitcher who hit their prime from 1992 to 2002 can they possibly let in? Will we just have Clemens, Maddux, Glavine, Smoltz, Pedro, and Randy Johnson as the only HOF’ers for the next decade?
    Or do we just exclude Barry, since he’s unlikeable and selfish, and look the other way on everyone else?

    I am fairly convinced that, like McGwire and Sosa, Bonds will never be elected to the Hall of Fame. Unlike some others who have a legitimate chance (such as Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, to name two), Bonds underwent a major physiological change: the size and shape of his head now is not nearly the same as it was at the start of his career. The only way for this to happen is through the influence of anabolic steroids. Therefore, Bonds was a user, and he will never be in the HoF. QED
