In the bottom right corner of ESPNews they are reporting that Bonds has tied Ruth with 714 home runs. Take that for what it is worth.

This is a sad day in baseball.

Glad it's done with, though. I was sick of hearing about it. I've always hated Barry Bonds. He had an amazing career up to 1999 - superb fielder, amazing speed, great power, great contact hitter. He was a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer, and could have challenged Willie Mays for 3rd on the HR list. But then he got greedy after watching cheaters Sosa and McGwire. What a shame.

Before 2000, when he turned 35, he had 450 homers. Without steroids he probably would have hit 150 more over the rest of his career, if he stayed healthy. That would put him at 600 and one of the greatest ever.

ESPN won't know what to lead SportsCenter with. Bonds hits 714, the Yankees and the Mets play. What to do? Did TO do anything today?

Even though Bonds played for my second-favorite MLB team in Pittsburgh, I still think he's an arrogant, self-centered, clueless piece of crap. I also don't like the fact that an ass like Bonds is featured on the "Talking Baseball" banner next to two of my favorite players as a kid in Clemente and Brett.

On ESPN's Sunday night game tomorrow, chief apologist Joe Morgan should have a lot to say in praise of Bonds.

In closing, BLEEP Barry Bonds.

I have no idea how many dingers Barroids winds up with, but I guarantee how ever many he hits will have a giant asterisks next to it. MLB will not give him the homerun record -- or even the #2 position behind Aaron. That's the job ex-Senator John Mitchell was hired for... tearing baseball a new ******* and "cleaning up the game" by taking a giant **** on all the steroid cheaters. Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa are probably in for trouble, too. A*S*T*E*R*I*S*K*S.

Game of Shadows has sealed Barroid's fate. MLB simply can't sweep his grand jury admission under the carpet anymore. The smartest move he could make is simply leave the game... for himself as well as the rest of the steroids cheats.

I just saw Bonds' press conference on BBTN and 'ol big head was actually quite gracious. He said something like, "The fans here were great. I'm just glad it's over. Now you guys can go watch Albert Pujols. That guy's gonna do some special things."

Anyway, in a perfect world all the managers throughout the league would get together and make a pact to intentionally walk him for the rest of his career. **** that greedy, pompous piece of ****. I hope Georrge Mitchell gets to the bottom of things and Barry goes away forever.

He won't. It really wouldn't surprise me if after he passes Ruth, he quits. He's already stated that was his goal. I hope the day comes when ESPN announces that Bonds has been permanently banned from baseball.

You could look it at that way.....

Or you could look at it this way:

Barry Bonds probably isnt good enough to get more than 770-780 HRs tops. A-Rod is 30 and has 438 HRs. Pujols is 26 and has 222 HRs. Both of them are going to have great shots at Bonds. This should just make you appreciate every Pujols and A-Rod HR even more and consider them part of their quest to pass Bonds on the list. Whatever record Bonds set is unlikely to last too long, given the rate at which HRs are hit in today's game. Be mad and then cheer for A-Rod and Pujols to get even.

Yes, I believe you are.

Anyway, I didn't see this posted, but they asked the guy who caught the ball if he was a Bonds fan:
"No, I don't really like him."
To which Bonds replied (at the press conference):
"If he doesn't like me tell him to give me the ball."

I believe that comment pretty much contradicts itself. The 714 came because of steroids. The only reason it's "impressive" is because he juiced himself up to get where he was. Anyone who CHEATS in his career should not be given any respect.

It's a damned shame. He actually was a HOF candidate before he decided to let his ego get in the way. But, Bonds is an idiot, a classless jerk, a classic big-headed wannabe. He didn't have to be that way. He chose to be that way. He chose to chase numbers by cheating instead of letting his natural ability (already evident and abundant) do the talking. He could have been Frank and Griffey Jr. Instead he chose to be ShamME*.

Rooting for Bonds is rooting for McGwire and Palmeiro and ShamME*. It's rooting for the game we love to be forever changed. It's rooting for making Aaron and Ruth irrelevent. It's rooting for 1000 HR as artificially pumped up players vie to see who can hit the ball farthest. It's rooting for robots to play the game. It's definitely not rooting for baseball...

If Bonds did cheat, IMO he did it unknowingly. As for being an idiot and classless, i think in public, yes he is, but will we see the real Barry Bonds that his inner circle sees? I doubt it. Steroids i do believe do help, but not as much to add on roughly 200+ homers to your career. Certain attributes and skills are needed to hit a home run at any level, let alone 200+ on the highest level of play.

You really believe that he believes that the cream and the clear were flaxseed oil?

Wow...

Hey, I happen to have this great piece of property. It's an amazing bridge. It spans this long body of water and it connects Manhattan to a borough known as Brooklyn. You can have it cheap because I got debts I have to pay immediately and cannot wait for the toll money to come my way. You should buy it, it will pay for itself in tolls inside of a few years. Then you are living large and sitting pretty. Let's say $10K and it's yours...

Edit: No none of us see the inner circle stuff including you. So you can take what you see in public and surmise that behind closed doors he is a great guy if you want to, but that seems poor logic to me. Most people are worse when the cameras and the lights aren't shining on them. Even if he is a great guy to his friends and loved ones (and the record seems to imply that is completely false) it matters little when he treats the little people who happen to be in his circle of the world so horribly.

It doesn't matter what Barry did or didn't know about the steroids. HE ADMITS HE TOOK STEROIDS. He told the grand jury he did.

He hit the dingers on steroids. The record was fueled by steroids. Barry doesn't dispute it. Barry's alibi means ****. There is juice in his veins. Barry admits it. How many times must we repeat it for the ignorant?

Now Barroids faces perjury charges for making up an alibi that only the most ignorant ever believed in the first place. He came clean about juicing only when dragged before a grand jury and threatened with jail time for lying. And this ******* STILL managed to **** up in front of the grand jury if only so the TRULY IGNORANT would believe his lie about flaxseed oil!

Boy, the level of denial by some fans perfectly matches Barroids'.

Judging by the grand jury testimony, he IIRC used steroids in 2002-03, i cant get the numbers off the top of my head, but if that takes away 80-100 HR's he's still at 600+. There's no telling which numbers are tainted, due to the lack of testing.

You gotta take away ALOT more than 100 homeruns. He hit 73 in 2001 alone, when he was at his steroid bloated peak ! He was using the stuff before 2002. Grand jury testimony from witnesses states that he became jealous of the sham that McGuire & Sosa pulled in 1998, and after that season, began looking for ways, and using.."ahem"....certain chemicals to aid him in this venture. Bonds WAS a HOF calibur player before 1998. But, once he started cheating, sorry, everything he's done since then is garbage. It's as real as the tooth fairy. No HOF for him. Only banishment and prison. Somebody can be a great guy his whole life, give to charity, help out others. But, guess what ? He robs ONE little bank, or murders somebody, HE'S A BAD GUY ! HE GOES TO PRISON ! Bonds cheated. Say it again. Bonds cheated, and everything he's done these last 6 years or so is phony B.S. It's a charade. Remove the blinders.

Okay, I see. He actually did know he was taking steroids, but he only took them for a couple of years. He hasn't touched them at any other time...

Denial... it's not just a river in Egypt.

You're freaking delusional...

Edit: I used to hear this crap from some of my flubbie buddies about ShamME*. No proof. No hamr. No foul. I doubt you would be defending ShamME* if he had managed to stay in the game, keep the roids flowing and break the record. From my perspective the two are the same.

Kimberly Bell testified that Barroids started juicing in 1999 with steroids he obtained through Greg Anderson. Having gotten injured in 1999 (from the juice) Anderson switched Barroids to the Cream and the Clear. That was before the 2000 season. This is all in the grand jury record.

Note that neither Barroids or his lawyer have disputed any of these facts as documented and revealed in Game of Shadows.

First of all, I think that there are some WSIers that are part of the Hank Aaron generation - you might have heard of him.

I have to admit that Roger Clemens also pops into my mind - and I think a couple of guys named Pujols and A-Rod might have something to day about 715 or 756 for that matter.

I'd take BARRY MANILOW before taking BARRY BONDS.

Actually I think Manilow might be younger than Grandpa Barroids.

Who says the nation's youth doesn't have role models?

Barry should auction off his bat and use it to buy a clue. Go home Barry, everybody hates you.

First of all, I think that there are some WSIers that are part of the Hank Aaron generation - you might have heard of him.

I have to admit that Roger Clemens also pops into my mind - and I think a couple of guys named Pujols and A-Rod might have something to day about 715 or 756 for that matter.

Funny you mention Clemens. Interesting how his body has changed since the mid 80's. Yeah I really believe his workout routine is the only reason why.

Does anyone know the steps that MLB would have to take to have this done. Officially. I know that when Roger hit 61 someone wanted to * it because of the length of the season but I don't think it went through.

No, it went through. It only got repealed a few years ago.

All they have to do is add it. I am sure Barry would sue and the owners would be able to use his own testimony against him.

This is probably why the owners won't star the feat. They'd bring more attention to the steroid scandal and they just want it to go away...
