this is the #1 topic on WFAN and WEEI today

TORONTO - Barry Bonds is coming to Fenway Park [map] in a little more than a month, and already, David Ortiz [stats] can tell that his reception is going to be ugly.


Ortiz believes Bonds needs to be cheered. Loudly.

Schilling says otherwise
"... Thereís no gray area. He admitted to cheating on his wife, cheating on his taxes, and cheating on the game... And I donít care that heís black, or green, or purple, or yellow, or whatever."
-- Curt Schilling on Barry Bonds (http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/extras/extra_bases/2007/05/curt_on_bonds_1.html)

I promise one thing. If Bonds breaks the record in Fenway all you will hear is
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Rather you like Bonds or not, records are meant to be broken. If and when Bonds does break the record it is not going to be a big deal because there are a few people right behind him that will probably challenge that record. That is why I don't think this is going to be as big as Aaron breaking Ruth. Aaron was the only guy that even came close to Ruth's record, so it seemed to the fans like it was an amazing thing. In today's baseball a HR is common... big deal. So you hit 755 HR's over a period of 20 years... Try to bat .400??? Win 30 games???? ERA under 1.00???? Hit in 56 consecutive games??? Now those are records...

I can not even fathom how ugly it could be. The only place that would be worse for Bonds is Philadelphia and they play there in early June as well.

Bonds will be very, very close by the middle of June and if he did tie or break the record at Fenway the reaction would make most baseball fans proud.

I remember how warm Aaron was received in Boston when he finished with the Brewers. One of the great "what ifs" in Boston lore is had the Braves accepted Tom Yawkey's invitation to move to Fenway in 1953, how many homers would aaron and Mathews have hit. It is quite possible it would have been the Red Sox that left town.

Perhaps he's defending Bonds because of this (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=ortizsteroids&prov=st&type=lgns) article I just saw on Yahoo.

It appears Boston Red Sox (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/bos/;_ylt=Aphpn0sNNeBBhVJ4.pKpYOTavrYF) slugger David Ortiz (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/5909/;_ylt=AniVHt__l4JcWdMLAIRjCZravrYF) is not sure if he has taken steroids.

Ortiz told the Boston Herald that he could not say definitively if he had ever used performance-enhancing drugs in the past. The burly designated hitter also said that if he did, it happened when he was much younger.

"I used to buy a protein shake in my country. I don't do that anymore because they don't have the approval for that here, so I know that, so I'm off buying things at the GNC back in the Dominican (Republic). But it can happen anytime, it can happen. I don't know. I don't know if I drank something in my youth, not knowing it."Here's another one who doesn't know if he took steroids. :?:

Yeah, I caught that too. Interesting...the old "I can't recall" defense...

If there's one saving grace for Bonds, at least he doesn't play for Boston or the Yankees. Otherwise, we'd never hear how horrible a person he is, how big of a cheater, etc. (See: Jason Giambi, Gary Sheffield)

Bonds is 500/700... and that's just disgusting. I don't care if we build an evil robot that gets those kinds of #'s, I believe you still gotta respect it. Great player, tainted player.

I'm hoping the record is broken in Boston or Philly. I want really loud and boisterous booing when he breaks that record. As long as it doesn't happen in SF where he'll get cheered.

If that's the case, then he really should be in a line of fire.

You might as well count Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz in that group.

Just a thought, but if players around baseball or the MLB itself really don't Bonds to break the record, then why don't they allow more pitchers to do what Russ Springer did last summer?
